Sharing knowledge

JRC researcher discussed new privacy and security perspectives with visiting researcher Sanaz Taheri Boshrooyeh

Social networks like Facebook, YouTube or Instagram have become parts of our daily lives. We share private media such as videos and photos with friends via them. However, unfortunately not only friends like our private media. Companies pay significant amounts of money to use these private data for marketing purposes and hackers do like to create fake profiles of us for dubios purposes.

Sanaz Taheri Boshrooyeh , a 26 years old PhD student from Koḉ University in Instanbul, is searching for more privacy and security in social networks.
Our research center was pleased to welcome Ms Boshrooyeh via a knowledge exchange programme (Short-Term Scientific Mission). She also held a special guest lecture about “preservation of privacy in social media advertising”.

Our researchers and Sanaz Taheri Boshrooyeh are looking forward to further scientific exchange and synergies. “We are already working on a joint research for security in Smart Grid protocols. Therefore Sanaz’s expertise is very valuable for getting new perspectives”, explaines researcher Andreas Unterweger, who is member of the EU COST Action IC 1206 management committee and organizer of Ms Boshrooyehs visit.
