Dr. Haya Shulman is the Director Cybersecurity and Analytics at the Fraunhofer Institute for Secure Information Technology SIT in Darmstadt, and Scientific Leader of the Fraunhofer Project Center for Cybersecurity at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in Israel.
She is also the Director of Security Operations Center (SOC) of the Fraunhofer Society and of the Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) of the Fraunhofer Society. Dr. Shulman is the initiator and leader of the Hessian-Israeli Partnership Accelerator program in Darmstadt and Jerusalem. Dr. Shulman obtained her PhD in Computer Science in 2014 from Bar Ilan University in Israel. Her research is focused on the applied aspects of cybersecurity, identifying weaknesses in networks and critical infrastructures and devising practical and effective countermeasures. Countermeasures, against the vulnerabilities discovered within her research, were integrated into operating systems and Top-Level Domains (such as ORG). Among other activities, Dr Shulman is focusing on raising awareness to cyber attacks and promoting defences and security mechanisms against attacks in different communities and forums. Within that effort, she is the representative for Fraunhofer SIT at the NIS platform WG3 of the European Commission and an IEEE cyber security ambassador. Haya Shulman received various awards for her work, including the Checkpoint award, ICANN fellowship, IETF/IRTF Applied Networking Research Prize, Microsoft Azure Research Award, and others. She frequently publishes and speaks at international conferences, and teaches on various topics in applied cybersecurity at TU Darmstadt and, as Visiting Professor, at Hebrew University.
