Cloud Native and Context-Aware Cybersecurity

Room: Sala riunioni 8 piano, via Celoria 18
Date & time: 20/07/2023, 14:00-15:00
Speaker: Chamseddine Talhi
Organizer: Paolo Ceravolo
We are witnessing the era of industrialization and state support of cyberattacks and cyber warfare activities. Unfortunately, today's cybersecurity solutions are showing rigidity when facing innovative and polymorphic cyberattacks. In addition, they are suffering from poor robustness and low scalability in front of virulent and large-scale attack campaigns. Since it is impossible to anticipate all possible cyberattack (techniques and magnitude), we should invest in adaptability. However, adaptive cybersecurity requires context-awareness capabilities and flexible architectures. Facing new cybersecurity challenges, Cybersecurity solutions should be able to update the already deployed cyber defense mechanisms and hire or craft on the fly new countermeasures and efficiently deliver them to specific locations. In this talk, we will discuss how Cloud Native and context-aware architectures enable adaptive and robust Cybersecurity.
