It is time for research to think about security and privacy

We usually talk about cyber security and privacy related to the world of industry and personal, but today I would make some points related to research in universities. how much security aware are universities? This is an interesting topics, looking at the statistics on cyber security attacks I would say security and privacy awareness is not at the first point in their needs. So bad … well first of all let’s make a little distinction: engineering vs the rest it is out of doubt that engineering universities and research are more cyber security savvy than the rest. Some of them…

Antonio Ieranò CSO, Cyber Security Architect, technical evangelist, consultant, writer, journalist and trainer Dear CISO and Board I think we should always consider our job as a part of the business.

And we will announce new technologies and new devastating scenarios related to new technologies. IoT and Cloud will rise their evil face while bad people will be lurking in the dark waiting to attack the innocent lamb crossing the road. But, in all of this, the most of the damage will be still done by bad designed systems, by managers that does not understand what means living in a digital world, by politicians that…

The IoT Files: Culture

The IoT Files: Culture   In the previous IoT flies tried to outline what are, from my point of view, some key factor that have to be taken into account when talking about IoT. The last, but not the least, point I would like to put some notes is culture.

Culture refers to billions of things, from language structure to literature, from how we share information to how…
