Royal Holloway PhD student wins first place in the British Retail Consortium Cyber Security Student Challenge

Posted on 14/08/2017

Andreas Haggman, a third-year PhD student in the Centre for Doctoral Training in Cyber Security, has won first place in the British Retail Consortium Cyber Security Student Challenge for 2017.

The challenge, which was open to any student based at a UK higher education establishment, invited new ideas on how government, law enforcement and industry should work together to tackle the main cyber security threats facing retail in the UK.

Andreas' winning paper focused on cyber risks facing Point of Sale systems and suggested two policies to mitigate threats: one to limit input vectors and establish secure supply chains for POS components, and one to introduce new education in schools.

Andreas' paper will be published in the BRC's membership magazine The Retailer.
