Data security and privacy in the cloud

Cloud computing is changing the way we access, manage, and use data and services. While convenient for functionalities and economy of scale, cloud computing clearly raises security and privacy protection issues.  In fact, data are stored and managed outside the direct control of their data owner. External parties storing or processing data may be not fully trusted  (and then should not know the actual data themselves or the operations performed on them), or trustworthy (and then be not completely reliable in their operating).  The requirement of maintaining confidentiality and integrity in cloud scenarios entails several challenges. In this talk, I will provide a characterization of such challenges and related open problems, as well as of emerging directions for ensuring security and privacy to data and users in the cloud.

Pierangela Samarati is a Professor at the Department of Computer Science of the Universita' degli Studi di Milano. Her main research
interests are access control policies, models and systems, data security and privacy, information system security, and information protection in general. She has participated in several projects involving different aspects of information protection. On these topics she has published more than 220 peer-reviewed articles in international journals, conference proceedings, and book chapters. 

She has been Computer Scientist in the Computer Science Laboratory at SRI, CA (USA). She has been a visiting researcher at the Computer Science Department of Stanford University, CA (USA), and at the ISSE Department of George Mason University, VA (USA).

She is the chair of the IEEE Systems Council Technical Committee on Security and Privacy in Complex Information Systems (TCSPCIS), of the Steering Committees of the European Symposium on Research in Computer Security (ESORICS), and of the ACM Workshop on Privacy in the Electronic Society (WPES). She is member of several steering committees.  She is ACM Distinguished Scientist (named 2009) and IEEE Fellow (named 2012). She has been awarded the IFIP TC11 Kristian Beckman award from (2008) the IFIP WG 11.3 Outstanding Research Contributions Award (2012).

She has served as General Chair, Program Chair, and program committee member of server international conferences.

Security: proactive or reactive? Science or best practices?"

Jorge Cuellar is a principal research scientist at Siemens AG.  He was awarded the DI-ST Award for the best technical Achievement for his work on modelling of operating systems and transaction managers. He has co-authored about 30 papers on different topics, including mathematical modelling of performance analysis, on learning algorithms, hand-writing recognition, formal specification and verification of distributed system design, and security.  He has done technical standardization work, related to the development of privacy and security protocols at the IETF, 3GPP, and the Open Mobile Alliance.  He has worked in several EU funded research projects, in particular in AVISPA and AVANTSSAR, both related to the formal modelling and verification of security and currently in NESSoS, WebSand and SPACIoS.  He has served in many Program Committees in international conferences, and in particular he has been the PC Co-Chair of SEFM (Software Engineering and Formal Methods in 2004), FM'08 (Formal Methods in 2008), and STM'10 and in the steering committee of ESSoS.  He has presented more than 20 invited talks at conferences and seminars, and acts regularly as a reviewer for international conferences and journals. He has been in the editorial board of Journal of Science of Computer Programming - Elsevier, and has been guest editor in several journals.  He is member of the Industrial Curatory Board of Dagstuhl, Leibniz Centre for Informatics, the world's premier venue for informatics.  He has held many short term visiting teaching positions, in different Universities around the world.
