Concordia's Open Door Event 2019 in Luxembourg
CSG's representative Muriel Franco was running the second keynote on Concordia's Open Door event October 16-17, 2019, which took place in Luxembourg. This keynote entitled "Update on Economic Aspects of Cybersecurity" focused within Concordia on the economic aspects of cybersecurity. Muriel discussed problems plaguing cybersecurity from an economic perspective. Also, two new approaches were presented: (a) SEConomy framework for economic assessment in cybersecurity and (b) a system to recommend protection based on particularly customer demands. As an integral part of this keynote Aljosa Pasic, Atos, Spain, provided an overview regarding past European Union EU projects on the cross cut of economics and cybersecurity.
The Open Door event was attended by a larger number of people from the industry, governments, and universities. This was an excellent opportunity to strengthen the collaborations between the different sectors working for the EU sovereign in cybersecurity, which include the University of Zurich UZH.
Additionally, the CSG presented three posters exposed at the Concordia Expo, a parallel session during the Concordia Open Door main event. The work presented included (a) "Blockchain Signaling System (BloSS)" by Bruno Rodrigues, Burkhard Stiller, (b) "A Reliable Transport Mechanism for Blockchain IoT Applications" by Eryk Schiller, Sina Rafati, Timo Surbeck, Burkhard Stiller, and (c) "The Design and Evaluation of a Protection Services Recommender System" by Muriel Franco, Bruno Rodrigues, Burkhard Stiller.
