Dr. Priyanka Verma became curious about security when her own computer was attacked during a lab session. This led to a career in researching cyber threats to SMART Manufacturing.
CONFIRM Smart 4.0 Fellow, Dr Priyanka Verma was first introduced to the concept of Cyber Threats and Security in Secondary School, when a computer she was working on was compromised due to a virus. She was immediately curious about it. In college she studied Computer Science and Engineering and for her PhD, Network Attack Detection in Cloud Computing. Her Postdoc and Fellowship continue on the path of Cyber Security in Smart Manufacturing, in identifying threats and solutions to detect and mitigate them.
