Zeki Erkin
(TU Delft)

Dr. Z. Erkin is a tenured assistant professor in the Cyber Security Group, Delft University of Technology. He received his PhD degree on “Secure Signal Processing” in 2010 from Delft University of Technology where he has continued his research on Privacy Enhancing Technologies, particularly on Computational Privacy. His interest is on protecting sensitive data from malicious entities and service providers using cryptographic tools.

Dr. Erkin has been involved in several European and national projects. He is serving also in numerous committees including IEEE TIFS, Eurasip SAT on Information Security, is an area editor in Eurasip Journal on Information Security and Elsevier Image processing. Dr. Erkin is also serving as a core member of Cyber Security Next Generation, a community of cyber security researchers in the Netherlands.

Andreas Peter
(TU Twente)

Andreas Peter graduated with a M.Sc. in mathematics at both the University of Cambridge (UK) and the University of Oldenburg (Germany) in 2008 and 2009, respectively. Subsequently, he received the Ph.D. in computer science from the Technical University of Darmstadt (Germany) in 2013. His Ph.D. thesis deals with the topic of secure outsourcing of computation with a special focus on homomorphic encryption. Since 2014, he is employed as an Assistant Professor at the chair of ''Services, Cybersecurity and Safety'' at the University of Twente (NL). His current research interests include both fundamental and applied security and privacy aspects in IT systems with a focus on privacy-enhancing technologies, cryptographic protocol design and analysis, as well as the application and theory of functional and homomorphic encryption. He served on the program committees of several workshops and conferences devoted to information security and privacy. Since 2015, he serves on the Editorial Board of the MDPI Open Access Journal on Cryptography and the SpringerOpen EURASIP Journal on Information Security.

Nicola Zannone
(TU Eindhoven)

Nicola Zannone received his Ph.D. in 2007 at the University of Trento. Since 2016 he is an Associate Professor in the Security group at the Eindhoven University of Technology. He received the IBM Ph.D. Fellowship Award for the 2006-07 academic year. He was awarded of Most Influential Paper Award at RE 2015. His research interests include computer security, data protection, access control and formal methods. He serves as a program committee member of several international workshops and conferences devoted to information security and privacy. He is Associated Editor of Computer and Network Security (specialty section of Frontiers in ICT).

Keywords: Data protection, access control, auditing, data analytic for security.


Cristiano Giuffrida
(VU Amsterdam)

Cristiano Giuffrida is an Assistant Professor in the Computer Science Department at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. His research interests span across several aspects of computer systems, with a strong focus on systems security. He received a Ph.D. cum laude from the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam under the supervision of Andy Tanenbaum in 2014. He was awarded the Roger Needham Award at EuroSys and the Dennis M. Ritchie Award at SOSP for the best PhD dissertation in Computer Systems in 2015 (Europe and worldwide). He was awarded a VENI grant (the Dutch Equivalent of a NSF CAREER Award, PhD+3) in 2017. He has served on the program committee of a number of top systems and security venues, such as SOSP, EuroSys, S\&P, CCS, and USENIX Security.

Keywords: Systems Security, Exploitation, Software Hardening

Luca Allodi
(TU Eindoven)

Luca Allodi is an Assistant Professor at the faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science of the Eindhoven University of Technology. He obtained his PhD from the University of Trento, Italy, on vulnerability risk management with a Best Thesis award. Luca’s research focuses at economic aspects of IT risk, and in particular on the relation between attacker economics, cybercrime activities, and attack realization. Luca has multiple publications in top academic and industry venues, including ACM TISSEC, Risk Analysis, ACM CCS, and BlackHat, and has served as invited reviewer for multiple top-tier journals. Luca is the only academic authoring member (next to CMU) of the NIST worldwide standard for vulnerability measurement (CVSS), and the only European representative in the standard body.
