Final SAPPAN event

 SAPPAN is a Horizon 2020 project funded by the European Commission to enable efficient protection of modern ICT infrastructures via advanced data acquisition, threat analysis, visualisation, and privacy-aware sharing and distribution of threat intelligence aimed to dynamically support human operators in incident management. We are also very happy to introduce our keynote speaker Mikko Hyppönen (, who will give a talk on “STATE OF THE NET”, followed by presentations about selected key results of SAPPAN. 

The event will take place virtually (Zoom) on Monday 4.04.2022, 14:00 – 16:30 (CEST). We are looking forward to your participation.

Kenote speaker:

Mikko Hypponen is a global security expert. He has worked at F-Secure since 1991.
Mr. Hypponen has written on his research for the New York Times, Wired and Scientific American and he appears frequently on international TV. He has lectured at the universities of Stanford, Oxford and Cambridge.
He was selected among the 50 most important people on the web by the PC World magazine and was included in the FP Global 100 Thinkers list.
Mr. Hypponen sits in the advisory boards of t2 and Social Safeguard.

Technical speakers:

Franziska studied cognitive science and computer science at the
University of Osnabrück before joining the visualization institute (VIS) at the
University of Stuttgart as a PhD. Her main research topics include
visualization for explainable artificial intelligence as well as sensemaking
and decision making with visualization.

Arthur Drichel received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Computer
Science from RWTH Aachen University.
He is a researcher at the Research Group IT-Security at RWTH Aachen University.
His research interests lie primarily in the areas of intrusion detection
systems, machine learning, and privacy enhancing technologies.

Martin Laštovička obtained his Ph.D. in Informatics at the Faculty of Informatics, Masaryk University, Czech Republic, and currently works as the head of the cybersecurity operations group in CSIRT-MU. His research topic lies in network traffic analysis and practical applications of machine learning to build Cyber Situational Awareness through the identification of network entities and their relationships. His focus is to apply research outputs to real-world data and enhance operations of the CSIRT-MU team.
Robert Rapp is a PhD Student at the Visualisation and Interactive Systems Institute (VIS) at the University of Stuttgart.  
After graduating with a degree in business informatics, he started his research in visual cyber analytics. As part of the Horizon 2020 project EU: SAPPAN his current work focuses on visual analysis of endpoint sensor data and analytical provenance in web interfaces.
Martin Zadnik is a deputy leader at the department of tools for network security  and administration at CESNET a.l.e. He has been a project leader in many national and contributor to many European projects related to network security, cyber threat intelligence, and network monitoring at high speeds. He cooperates with both public and commercial sectors in research and innovation of network cybersecurity concepts and their implementation into open-source tools or products.
Dr. David Karpuk is Senior Data Scientist at F-Secure, focusing on applications of machine learning and artificial intelligence to the construction of algorithms for cyberattack detection and response systems. He received his Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Maryland, College Park in 2012, and was previously a Postdoctoral Researcher at Aalto University in the Algebra, Number Theory, and Applications research group in the Department of Mathematics and Systems Analysis. After his postdoctoral work, he subsequently served as Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at Universidad de los Andes, Colombia.  David was previously the recipient of an Academy of Finland Postdoctoral Researcher grant, as well as a Postdoctoral Researcher grant from the Magnus Ehrnrooth Foundation.
