Dr. Olga E. Segou holds a joint PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering (2014) from the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) and the National Centre for Scientific Research “Demokritos” (NCSRD), under a fellowship awarded by the Hellenic General Secretariat of Research and Technology and NCSRD (2009). She also holds a Diploma of Electrical and Computer Engineering (Dipl.Eng.) from the University of Patras (2008). Since 2009, she has been employed as a Research Associate in the Integrated Systems Laboratory of the Institute of Informatics and Telecommunications of NCSRD. Her research focuses on architecture design, performance estimation and privacy implications of Location Based Services and Pervasive Computing. Furthermore, she has participated in numerous EU-funded research projects in the areas of Security and Ambient Assisted Living (such as the DITSEF, ACRIMAS, PACT, HMFM, HiPow, etc.). She has been a member of the Technical Chamber of Greece since 2008.
In the massive and ever-changing field of Cyber Security, prioritizing among research topics remains a challenging task. In order to provide a research topic ranking, the CyberROAD risk assessment methodology, takes into account:
• cyber crime and cyber terrorism, (targeting organizations, the public or critical infrastructures)
• Emerging, cutting-edge technologies and commercial trends
• Ethical and Legal implications and gaps in current regulations
• Currently set EU policies on the development of Transport, Security etc.
Furthermore, we present the recent PACT study of the public perception of privacy and security, and a Decision Support System that creates a privacy impact assessment, as privacy and user trust can greatly affect the adoption of new security solutions.
