I hold a University degree in Telecommunications Electronics and Software Engineering from Hellenic Air Force Academy / Engineering Dpt. and an MSc by Research in Ultrasonic Robotic Sensors from Robotics Research Group of Oxford University UK. I have also a broad experience of 18 years in telecommunications, electronics and software engineering in Hellenic Air Force, having spent the last 3 years in Hellenic National Defense General Staff / Cyber-Defense Directorate, where I focused on the security aspects of the above. My current task is to supervise a small team of 4-7 software developers that develop software tools for the needs of cyber-defense directorate. In addition I participate to national and international exercises, including NATO exercises, as incident handler, reverse engineer and forensics analyst (Panoptis, Cyber Coalition, Cyber Endeavour, Locked Shields).
Greek MOD through Cyber Defence Directorate during the last 6 years has participated in several cyber defence exercises both at national and international level. Every exercise usually has many exercise objectives which are to test decision making process, improve technical capabilities and exchange information. However even if most of the times lessons learned generated from these exercises have a lot in common especially at the strategic level we keep seeing same lessons identified over the time. Our presentation will focus both on the lessons that really were identified with relevant progress and on lessons that still fail to be addressed properly or efficiently by the institutes.
