Malicious Software: Should we care? Dr Lorenzo Cavallaro to speak at the Science for Schools Lecture Series

Posted on 25/01/2013

The ISG is running a public lecture in February for those with a general interest in Information Security. This event is also part of the RHUL Science for Schools lecture series. Anyone thinking of a future career or has a general interest in Information Security they are most welcome to come. The title of the lecture is 'Malicious Software: should we care?' and the speaker is 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.

The talk gives an overview of how malware poses a threat to information security and personal privacy, trying to answer the most challenging and foremost question: "Why should we care?". The talk takes place at 18:15 on Wednesday 13 February 2013 in Room 0-02/03, Windsor Building at Royal Holloway, University of London. If you are interested in attending, please contact Dr Gerhard Hancke.
