ReCRED presentation in the framework of the European Cyber Security Month (ECSM) - Κεντρική Εικόνα

European Cyber Security Month (ECSM) is the EU's annual advocacy campaign that takes place in October and aims to raise awareness of cyber security threats, promote cyber security among citizens and provide up to date security information, through education and sharing of good practices. In the context of this year’s ECSM, an event was organized at the premises of UPRC, where various partners, such as the Hellenic Police Cybercrime Division, the Hellenic Authority for Communication Security and Privacy (ADAE), the Ionian University, ENISA and of course UPRC, joined their efforts and presented their activities. C.Xenakis was invited to present ReCRED and its objective, along with the state-of-the-art technologies that are employed by the project. During his presentation, C.Xenakis focused on the biometric authentication concept, which, based on physiological and behavioral features of the user, achieves a highly secure authentication scheme that can replace the overused and unreliable passwords.

The event was mainly addressed to undergraduate and postgraduate students of the university, that are interested in cyber security related topics, but it was welcomed with great support from the members of all the invited parties.
