Science for Schools Lecture - Malicious Software: should we care?

Posted on 13/12/2013

The ISG ran a public lecture on the 20th of November 2013 for those with a general interest in Information Security. This event was also part of the RHUL Science for Schools lecture series. The title of this lecture was 'Malicious Software: should we care?' and the speaker was Dr Lorenzo Cavallaro.

Abstract: Malicious software (malware) is the traditional way in which cyber criminals infect user and enterprise hosts to gain access to their private, financial and intellectual property data. Once stolen, such information can enable more sophisticated attacks, generate illegal revenue, undermine users privacy, and allow for cyber-espionage.

In this talk, Lorenzo Cavallaro gave an overview of information security and privacy threats, trying to answer the most challenging and foremost question: 'Should we care?'
