This presentation shall take a look at the common pitfalls when developing software or deploying computing services to the world. Attackers are on the prowl finding the usual misconfigurations, errors or blunders in such software and hardware and try to exploit them for their evil deeds. Attacks against CERN are not an exception. Hence, students can do better ! Learning from past incidents: A Plea for Better Computer Security!
Stefan Lüders, PhD, graduated from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich and joined the European Organization for Particle Physics (CERN) in 2002. Since 2009, he is heading the CERN Computer Security Incident Response Team as CERN’s Computer Security Officer with the mandate to coordinate all aspects of CERN’s computer security – office computing security, computer centre security, GRID computing security and control system security – whilst taking into account CERN’s operational needs. Dr. Lüders has presented on computer security and control system cyber-security topics at many different occasions to international bodies, governments, and companies, and published several articles.
