Danilo Massa - aizoOn (Turin)

Danilo Massa started his career in 1995 and has had extensive technology experience in management and Cyber Security. He is one of the leading experts on cyber threats and has led aizoOn in one of the most important research programs on advanced Malware identification systems which we have coined the "aramis" platform.

Danilo is entirely well-versed in Cybersecurity: from vulnerability assessments and penetration testing of integrated systems to the safety of critical infrastructure, to the drafting and implementation of procedures and processes. Danilo, along with being a professor at some of the most prestigious technology security universities in Europe, was also a SANS certified trainer in the GIAC program (Global Information Assurance Certification) for Incident Handling and Digital Forensics courses.

He took part in the design of the first and second level University Masters - in particular with the University of Genoa, and he studied teaching, formulating and contributing to the curriculum, with expertise in several Masters Degrees. He is responsible for numerous strategic defence projects, and he is one of the technological leaders implementing a newly developed cyber range in Italy; this is a government initiative designed to educate and prepare business and public entities how to defend against sophisticated cyber intrusions.

The University of Adelaide:

A member of Australia’s prestigious Group of Eight research-intensive universities—standing tall among the world’s leading institutions of learning and innovation.

The clearest indication of this is a consistently high rating by the most respected international assessment bodies: QS World University Rankings, Times Higher Education and Shanghai Jiao Tong’s Academic Rankings of World Universities (ARWU). All consider The University of Adelaide one of the top 1% of universities worldwide, and the top university in our state.

The vast majority of their research is rated ‘above or well above world standard’ by the Australian Research Council’s Excellence in Research Australia program.
