A thematic cybersecurity (and privacy) research session is again part of the ICT.OPEN 2017 conference program, scheduled March 21st 2017. The objective of this session is to demonstrate the progress and achievements in the execution of recent cybersecurity research. The session is organised by dcypher, and includes a keynote in the morning by professor Bart Jacobs (RUN) and a keynote in the afternoon by Dr. Maria Dubovitskaya (IBM). Two important price winning announcements are part of the afternoon program: The Dutch Cyber Security best Research Paper (DCSRP) Award and the Best Cybersecurity Master Thesis (BCMT) Award will be presented to the winners (a PhD and Master student respectively).
