Register for the 3rd Workshop on Attackers and Cyber-Crime Operations at EuroS&P

Together with Dr. Alice Hutchings (University of Cambridge) and Dr. Sergio Pastrana (University Carols III, Madrid), Dr. Luca Allodi from Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), leader of the WP7 of INTERSECT, is co-chairing the 2021 edition of the International Workshop on Attackers and Cybercrime Operations (WACCO 2021). The event is co-located with the 6th IEEE European Symposium on Security and Privacy (EuroS&P 2021).

The Workshop brings together researchers from technical and non-technical disciplines, from computer security to criminology and economics, to discuss recent developments in cyber-attacker operations and ecosystem. The goal is to present research aiming new empirical methods, measures, and technologies to quantify and understand offender operations across all forms of cyber-crime. This year’s workshops includes cybercrime (specialisation, disruption and modelling), darknet (market and external events), critical infrastructure and social engineering analysis.

The highly multidisciplinary angle of the workshop reflects the also multidisciplinary research fields of the INTERSECT consortium, and the work conducted in the context of the INTERSECT WP4 on Attacks.
