From Zero Day to Doomsday. Cyber Security a Public Lecture

This event took place on 27th March 2018
Berrill Lecture Theatre, The Open University, Walton Hall Campus, Milton Keynes, United Kingdom

In From Zero Day to Doomsday, Mike Richards, Senior Lecturer, Faculty of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematicswill deliver a lecture on the WannaCry ransomware cyber attack, which had serious implications last year for the NHS and businesses around the world.

Mike’s lecture is inspired by his teaching for the OU Module TM112 Introduction to computing and information technology, which will run from April October 2018.

In From Zero Day to Doomsday, Mike will focus on the potential threat from hidden software bugs that are being exploited by criminals and governments alike with the intention of causing harm to the computer systems upon which we all rely.

After his lecture, Mike was joined by a panel of experts to discuss the topic in more depth.
