On 27 October 2022 itrust consulting celebrated its 15th anniversary, in the beautiful Lalux auditorium in Leudelange.
The first part of the event was dedicated to a technical workshop, where the current research projects Eagle-1 and CyFORT were presented.
The second part was an academic symposium with five expert speakers: Mr Gauthier Crommelink from Ministère de l’Économie on the support of his Ministry for research and innovation in cybersecurity, Prof. Dr Peter Y.A. Ryan, full Professor at the University of Luxembourg on the need of verification in Securing Elections, Mr Alan Kuresevic, CEO of SES Techcom, on how they bring Quantum Key Distribution to Space.
In his birthday speech, Dr Carlo Harpes, Managing Director and founder of itrust consulting showed extracts of policies and procedures that itrust consulting has written in the last years for more than 20 customers, many of which have achieved a 27001 certification, thanks to documents and risk assessments by itrust consulting. He particularly thanked his R&D team for tailoring the risk assessment tool TRICK Service to specific requirements by ILR. At the end of his presentation, Dr Harpes announced the creation of a spin-off company to consolidate the research and development activities to enable a more autonomous and focused approach.
Finally, Dr Arash Atashpendar, the head of Research and Development at itrust consulting provided a presentation of the spin-off company, called “itrust Abstractions Lab”.
The academic symposium was enhanced by the young musical talents of the ‘JazzFellas’ and by the presentation of a painting of Martine Zehren for this anniversary. It was followed by a walking dinner fostering useful conversations.
We would like to thank all participants for contributing to the great atmosphere and for allowing us to share this moment with you!
