Congratulations to Nadhem AlFardan, one of the ISG's PhD students, who has won a trophy and a £2000 prize for the "best elevator pitch" at the first annual conference for UK Academic Centres of Excellence in Cyber Security Research (ACE-CSR). Nadhem had just 5 minutes to talk about his recent research on the DTLS protocol in front of a panel of government and industry judges. He fought off stiff competition from PhD students and postdocs from the other 7 ACE-CSR institutions to win the award. Nadhem will be spending the prize on conference travel over the next year. Speaking at the event held in Cheltenham on 5th and 6th November, ISG Director Professor Keith Martin said "I'm delighted that Nadhem has won this award. It is a testament to the quality of his research and his ability to communicate it in an engaging manner."
