Kaspersky Lab host infosec student event in Poland

According to the Russian-headquartered IT security specialist, the event will bring together the winners from three preliminary rounds of a security competition held in Europe and Asia, as well as Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States.

More than 100 students and professors from leading universities from around the world will take part in the conference, along with representatives from Kaspersky Lab’s headquarters/regional offices, the media and an invited audience.

During the conference, the plan is for students to present their research to a panel of judges consisting of Kaspersky Lab experts, professors and the event sponsors.

The panel will evaluate the students’ performance according to the social significance and relevance of the project; how practical and innovative it is; and their presentation skills.

The conference agenda also includes workshops led by Kaspersky Lab experts. The experts will answer questions and make recommendations regarding project follow-ups and talk about the latest developments plus techniques used to fight cybercrime.

Announcing the event, Svetlana Efimova, Kaspersky Lab’s head of educational programmes, said that the problem of cyberthreats is very acute all over the world.

“It is therefore important to be prepared for the cybercriminals’ next moves and to know how to resist them. That is the reason why Kaspersky Lab pays so much attention to the development of scientific and innovative research in this field”, she said.

“By holding conferences we provide an opportunity for enthusiastic young IT specialists and experts to exchange their experiences, knowledge and ideas”, she added.

Efimova went on to say that events like this provide broad opportunities for joint working, as well as assisting students to find their way in the world of IT security.
