SES Lecture – IT & Security Challenges at CERN

June 28, 2022 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Today, our biological lives are deeply entangled and joint in symbiosis with the digital functioning of computer systems. Telephony. Media. Money. Without digital IT, our comfortable life would grind to a halt. Hence, the computer security of such systems is essential to protect our way of living.

If you consider security is difficult, try doing so for a large research institution with both staff, visitors, and equipment from around the world. Dr Lüders will focus on the struggles to deploy adequate security measures while maintaining a suitable balance with the academic nature of the organisation.

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.
