Speaker: Federico Maggi

Person large

I am a Senior Threat Researcher with Trend Micro’s Forward-Looking Threat Research (FTR) team, an elite team of researchers whose mission is to fighting against cyber criminals and scouting the future of emerging technologies, striving to predict and prevent emerging security risks and threats.

My research interests, mainly developed during my MSc and PhD, revolve around various topics under the “cyber security” and “cyber crime” umbrella terms, including threat analysis, malware analysis, mobile security, financial fraud analysis and detection, web- and social-network security and data analysis.

Before joining Trend Micro, I was an Assistant Professor at Dipartimento di Elettronica, Informazione e Bioingegneria (DEIB), Politecnico di Milano in Italy, where I co-directed the system-security group at the NECST Laboratory.

In my career, I collaborate(d) with several research groups (e.g., UCSB, FORTH, NEU, Stony Brook, KU Leven, and RHUL), and I have given several lectures and talks as an invited speaker at international venues and research schools. I also serve in the review or organizing committees of well-known conferences.
