2024 INTERSCT. Conference

Join us at #INTERSCT24, the 2024 INTERSCT. Conference on cyber security of Internet-of-Things on 28 May 2024 at Eindhoven University of Technology on our journey towards an Internet of secure things. During the morning program we focus on its "Design", "Defense", "Attack" and "Governance of Security & Privacy" Work Packages and during the afternoon we focus on a number of external factors that influence our cyber security and where invited speakers Mr. Bart Groothuis (European Parliament) and Ben Kokx (Philips) will first address legislation, regulations, and standardization on cyber security in the European Union after which Ruben van Well (Police) and a guest speaker from the Ministry of Interior Affairs and Kingdom Relations, General Intelligence and Security Service will address cybercrime and threats like COATHANGER malware.

2024 INTERSCT. Conference

Introduction

With the Internet-of-Things (IoT) we are seamlessly connecting the cyber and the physical worlds extending the risk area to safety requiring a broader perspective on security. IoT is turning out to be one of the weakest spots in our infrastructure. With billions and in the near future potentially trillions of devices, the security risks are growing at great rates. Our economic and societal forces are creating a perfect storm, a pervasive infrastructure of trillions of IoT devices which on one hand will oversee our lives and economy, and on the other hand will be completely unmanageable from a security perspective.

To compound the risk, IoT systems are often devised and engineered in places where we have no control on, and unless we want to basically surrender our digital sovereignty by only relying on foreign solutions for our national cyber security, we need to find a way to secure them regardless of provenance and built-in malicious intents.

We cannot secure something we cannot manage, we need to rethink the security paradigm, delegating part of the security management to the system that needs to autonomously adapt to the changing environment, while remaining under our supervision, and rethink accordingly all our security technologies. We need to be able to designdevelop and manufacture IoT systems-of-systems in a fundamentally different way enabling the overall system to become robustresilient and trustworthy, even in the presence of individual IoT devices that are insecure or even compromised in a Zero-trust environment and providing the right ecosystem for their wide adoption within industry. We actually need to be able to design, develop and manufacture new types of IoT devices with security-by-designsecurity-by-default, robustness and resilience in mind; while continuously preserving all safety requirements, these devices must pro-actively manage their security, actively respond to attacks, recover from attacks, resume and restore themselves to a predefined level of operation following an attack etc.,

During the 2024 INTERSCT. Conference on cyber security of Internet-of-Things, on 28 May at Eindhoven University of Technology, we will address many of these issues with an impressive line-up of invited speakers, panelists, and moderators. There will be keynote addresses by Mr. Bart Groothuis, two series of parallel sessions related to the various work packages in the NWO NWA INTERSECT project (DesignDefenseAttack, and Governance), a series of plenary sessions related to the state-of-the-art in cyber security of Internet-of-Things, as well as a networking lunch and a networking reception at the end of the event.

Mr. Ruben van Well

Mr. Ruben van Well

Politie

Mr. Ruben van Well on “The broad approach on Cybercrime by the Dutch police

Cybercrime is such a scalable crime type, that it is impossible to arrest your way out of. To be successful in the approach, there needs to be a balance between repression and prevention. A broad approach was created by the Dutch police. Focusing not only on suspects, but also the victims and structural opportunity which is I place, aiming to prevent, disturb and prosecute cybercrime. You will be taken along this approach by the example of Operation Cookie Monster, the takedown of Genesis Market.

From 2002 on, Ruben has been working for the Dutch National police. He started patrolling the streets of Rotterdam 22 years ago and had a great variety of functions, from Riot police to assistant public prosecutor immigration and criminal law and from detective to  account manager public private partnership in the cybercrime unit of Rotterdam. Innovation has been a common thread throughout his career. Always looking for possibilities to make policework better, easier and more fun. With an aim to boost safety & security and/or the service provided by the police. After guiding various experiments throughout the organization. He has recently found a passion to fight cybercrime. As he states: “Cybercrime is the innovation of crime, you need to be very agile to fight it effectively. Luckily, I have an awesome team with a variety of specialists who all share a goal to fight impactful cybercrime to protect society against it.”
