Annual Lecture

KCLEA inaugurated the concept of an Annual Lecture on Engineering topics after the faculty of Engineering was closed in 2013.  This proved so popular that even though Engineering is coming back to King's College, we decided to continue these Lectures.


Our last lecture was on 27th February 2019, 18.30 - 21.00, at K4U.12, King's Building, Strand Campus.  This was by Professor Luca Viganò on Cyber Security. 

Professor Luca Vigano

Registration: 18.30

Lecture: 19.00

Reception: 20.00

Price: Free


Based on the six W’s, (Who? What? Where? When? Why? and How?) , King's Professor Luca Viganò discussed and argued the concept of “Explainable Security” (XSec) as it relates to its stakeholders and the many facets of modelling, privacy, trust, vulnerabilities and counter-measures. He then set out a roadmap identifying several possible research directions for XSec.

As concrete examples, he first discussed a new, declarative way to define and reason about privacy and then showed how basic cybersecurity notions (and even some advanced ones) can be explained with the help of famous (and some perhaps less obvious) movies and other artworks.

Professor Viganò is the Vice Dean (External Relations) of the Faculty of Natural & Mathematical Sciences and Head of the Cybersecurity Group of the Department of Informatics.
