The Professors’ research team was recognized at the 27th Annual International Conference on Computer Science and Software Engineering hosted by IBM Advanced Studies and IBM Canada Laboratory for their outstanding research project.

Dr. Jourdan and Dr. Bochmann’s research team includes M.Sc. student Sophie Le Page, Ph.D. student Qian Cui, and adjunct professor Dr. Iosif Viorel Onut. Their project, titled “proactive phishing detection”, focuses on cybersecurity and “phishing attacks” detection and prevention. The work recognized by this award is a new, more effective attacks detection technique that can be used in large-scale cloud-based environments. This research project best exemplify the IBM Advanced Studies mission, by delivering excellence in applied research, exposing IBM development teams to new and emerging technologies, and transferring results into commercial products. The award was given in appreciation of the team’s outstanding contributions to phishing detection and cybersecurity that have enhanced IBM Security product capabilities, and delivered important benefits to IBM customers, partners, and law enforcement agencies.

Dr. Jourdan joined the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science as a professor in 2004. His current research interests include software modelling and testing and software security.

Dr. Bochmann has been a professor at the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science since 1998. His fields of interest include software engineering, model-based development, distributed systems, peer-to-peer systems, quality of service and security management for web applications, and Rich Internet Applications.
