Thierno Barry, PhD

I’m a security researcher specialising in Mobile Security. I’m currently the head of Huawei’s Mobile Security Laboratory in the UK.
Before my current occupation, I have been a security researcher at the French Atomic and Alternative Energy Commission (CEA), a period during which I got my PhD in the security of embedded systems.
Beside my research activities I was teaching Computer Programming at the Grenoble Institute of Technology.
Then I joined Thales group as a Senior Penetration Tester - in a laboratory operating on behalf of the French National Security Agency - where I have been in charge of leading many security assessments, penetration testing and security certification projects.
These activities allowed me to acquire a great technical and management experience that gives me a broad understanding of multiple IT security domains, from web applications to low level operating systems.
