Dr. Siani Pearson Dr. Siani Pearson
Siani Pearson is a senior researcher in the Cloud and Security Research Lab (HP Labs Bristol), HP's European long term applied research centre. She is technical lead on a number of collaborative projects, both with HP divisions and with external academics. Her current research focuses on privacy-enhancing technologies, accountability and the cloud. She received an MA from Oxford University in logic, a PhD in artificial intelligence from the University of Edinburgh and was a Research Fellow at Cambridge University before joining HP. She holds or shares 50 patents and is author or co-author of over 100 papers and technical reports as well as books on trusted computing and cloud privacy and security. She is a fellow of the British Computer Society, a senior member of IEEE and a Certified Information Privacy Professional/Information Technology.

Privacy Management in Global Organisations

This talk will focus on how meeting privacy requirements can be challenging for global organizations and in future Internet service provision models. Technological approaches will be explained that can be used to help address these issues, including some of the innovative solutions that we have developed in HP Labs that are currently being used, rolled out or are the subjects of further research.

He is a Fellow of the ACM, a Fellow of the British Computer Society, a Fellow of the IEE, a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering, as well as a Fellow of the IEEE. He was a member of the IAB 96-02, and went to the first 50 IETF meetings; was general chair for the ACM SIGCOMM 95-99 and was a recipient of the Sigcomm Award in 2009.

Federating Sensor Networks

Sensor networks are typically purpose-built, designed to support a single running application. As the demand for applications that can harness the capabilities of a sensor-rich environment increases, and the availability of sensing infrastructure put in place to monitor various quantities soars, there are clear benefits in a model where infrastructure can be shared amongst multiple applications. This model however introduces many challenges, mainly related to the management of the communication of the same application running on different network nodes, and the isolation of applications within the network. This potentially results in new security challenges, but we tackle this by design, and integrate solutions with each sensor application. In this talk, I will describe the Fresnel project's technology that addresses these challenges.
