The ISG Smart Card and Internet of Things Security Centre (SCC) was invited to deliver a presentation in the
7th INFOCOM SECURITY CONFERENCE (http://www.infocomsecurity.gr/en/),
29 – 30 March 2017 – Athens, Divani Caravel, Athens, Greece.
Professor Konstantinos Markantonakis presented the main findings of the recently completed “Secure High-Availability Avionics Wireless Network” (SHAWN) project funded by Innovate UK, in terms of the security and privacy challenges on the wireless networks in the Avionics environments. Along with the newly started three-year project, “Data to Improve the Customer Experience” (DICE), funded by EPSRC. The project, among others aims to examine new challenges in security and privacy that were not present in the exiting smart ticketing infrastructures.
The ISG was offered a stand among the conference exhibitors. It was an excellent opportunity to disseminate the ISG’s promotional material and to meet prospective students.
“It is now the top annual event for information security in Greece. Since 2011, it has been charting a rising course, mirrored by numbers and attendance statistics, as well as the overall recognition by this industry, the scientific and technology community of IT professionals. The 2017 event attracted more than 2.200 visitors and was supported by more than 45 sponsor companies, covering a wide range of subjects on information security, through 40 main presentations and 15 parallel-running workshops, that took place.”
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.
