«Lecture Safeguarding Biomedical Data: The Crucial Role of IT Security»

Biomedical data, containing personal information, is highly valuable and requires robust protection. Malicious hackers pose a threat, attempting to exploit data platforms for personal gain, leading to potential consequences such as blackmail and unauthorized data selling.

Join us for an overview of IT security in biomedical research. Specifically, we'll explore the role of intrusion detection systems in preventing data exfiltration.

Topics that we will touch on

·       The value of Biomedical Data

·       Security Challenges

·       Overview of IT Security in Biomedical Research

·       Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS)

·       Preventing Data Exfiltration


The lecture will be held in English.

Target group: Teenagers and adults (12 years and over), ETH members, researchers, students.
