Mr Romain Wartel (CERN)


This presentation gives an overview of the current computer security landscape. It describes the main vectors of compromises in the academic community including lessons learnt, and reveal inner mechanisms of the underground economy to expose how our resources are exploited by organised crime groups, as well as recommendations to protect ourselves. By showing how these attacks are both sophisticated and profitable, the presentation concludes that the only mean to adopt and appropriate response is to build a tight international collaboration and trusted information sharing mechanisms within the community.
