The ISG/ Smart Card Centre (SCC) is proud to be selected as the host of the 6th Workshop in Information Security Theory and Practices (WISTP 2012). The event will be held in June 19-22 in Royal Holloway. The ISG Smart Card Centre (SCC) played a pivotal role (along with colleagues from France, Belgium and Greece) in bringing this workshop into existence. The workshop’s steering committee has managed to make this event successful, recognised and equally important an event that bridges theory and practice in the field of Information Security. It is a testimony to this success that every year the conference presents a strong academic programme, the publisher for the conference proceedings is Springer and the event’s programme committee along with the invited speakers are drawn from international experts in the field.

Prof Konstantinos Markantonakis, Dr Raja Naeem Akram and Mr James Tapsell, worked successfully into the creation of a patent as a “Technique to record an event and its impact on the data during the lifetime of a data – specific to individual entities represented in the data.” The implementation helps in serving General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) rights: Right to Access, Right to Forget, and Right to Rectification (with evidence).
RHUL has invested in further business analysis around the commercialisation opportunities of the technique developed at SCC. Furthermore, it has invested in building a commercial grade implementation of an MVP, in order to provide the stepping stone for commercialising the aforementioned patent.
