Come by and join us. We are looking forward to seeing you (again)!


The First Talk: "Major Tom to ground control - Can you hear me, Major Tom?" - Data Security in Healthcare

In 1970 The DODs Ware Report invented a computer security framework, motivated by consideration of multi-user, networked nuclear capabilities. Today we use substantially the same principles for our security in 'cyberspace'. However, our systems - and their environments - are now subject to additional classes of threat and vulnerability; and the healthcare domain is no exception. In this talk, Paul will highlight important dimensions of security that we must increasingly consider - and which are challenging and extending the traditional bedrock.
Are we safeguarding risk to others? What can we disclose, exactly? Do statistics still work? Are we in control? This talk seeks to illustrate how these questions are paramount for the cyber-physical world in which we now must live. And together we must find appropriate answers.

Speaker Bio: DR. PAUL GALWAS
Paul has spearheaded security solutions for more than 25 years and now contributes to Ocean Protocol, a decentralised data exchange protocol to unlock data for AI and Chief Security Officer for DEX, a Newton Circus company. He steered multiple national policy and research strategies, national security standards (e.g. in smart cities, digital manufacturing and IoT), and lead multiple collaborative research projects (including EU Horizon 2020 on novel risk management). He has worked on privacy, trust & identity, digital asset protection & sharing, IoT & distributed ledger security, and secure payment systems, and with UK and US Governments on classified mobile security. He has a PhD and MA in science from Cambridge University, UK.


The Second Talk: "Anonymization in medical research - challenges and solutions"

Dr. Florian Kohlmayer received his doctorate from the Technical University of Munich at the Chair of Medical Informatics of the Institute of Medical Informatics, Statistics and Epidemiology in cooperation with the Chair of Security in Informatics. His interests include IT support for medical research, especially solutions for IT security and data protection. He is co-founder and managing director of Bitcare GmbH, which focuses on IT services for translational medicine and is part of the ethical committee at Ludwig-Maximilian University Munich.


The Third Talk: "AI in a decentralized world: towards a public utility network for data and algorithms"
