  • Martin Boldt (Blekinge Institute of Technology)+ BioI’m a PhD in computer science at Blekinge Institute of Technology in Sweden. As a member of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering my main research focus is in Information Security and Computational Criminology, which are approached using various methods from the interdisciplinary field of Data Science. Currently I’m working in two interesting research projects. The first project is funded by the Knowledge Foundation during 2014-2020 and is titled Scalable resource-efficient systems for big data analytics. In this project I’m invovled in studies regarding unsupervised methods for anomaly detection as well as e-mail content to experts mappings. The second project is together with the Swedish Police and the Swedish National Forensic Centre. This project focuses on the mitigation of serial volume crime, in particular residential burglaries, using data-driven methods.

Growing threats and increasingly also failures due to complexity may compromise the security and resilience of network and service infrastructures. Applications and services require security of data handling and we need new security architectures and scalable and interoperable security policies for this. There is a need to guarantee end-to-end security in data communications and storage, including identity management and authentication.

Moreover, we need technology to enable network security monitoring and tracing and to assess the trustworthiness of infrastructures and services. It must ensure the protection of personal data and privacy and to properly assign liability and risks, together with the appropriate governance models needed to do so. Furthermore this is applied to the settings of Public Safety in general.
