KISON researchers present new cybersecurity projects4 August, 2021
Two researchers from the IN3’s KISON (K-riptography and Information Security for Open Networks) research group, which studies new technologies for improving people’s security online, presented a couple of their current projects at the UOC’s 2021 Alumni event, held on 8 July.
One of them, postdoctoral researcher Amna Qureshi, has designed and developed a secure P2P-based multimedia distribution framework, and is researching future networks and technology.
The other, Regner Sabillon, is a predoctoral researcher at the UOC Doctoral School who conducts cybersecurity audits and has been researching CSAM and CATRAM (cybersecurity auditing and awareness models) to help individuals and organizations learn about protecting their privacy. His thesis is on the importance of protecting our personal data and showing younger generations how to act responsibly when online.
