Every year we organize a Demo Day to showcase our current research in information security and to seek valuable inputs from external visitors. The event is intended to bring local academia, students and industry together and give them an overview of on-going information security research in Finland’s capital area.

Secure Systems annual Demo Days are public events and free of charge. Events are organized by the Secure Systems research groups at Aalto University and University of Helsinki in collaboration with Helsinki-Aalto Institute for Cybersecurity (HAIC).
