ComTalks 4: “From Polito to the big match against the cybersecurity giants” - a talk with Hassan Metwalley

On Zoom platform

Fourth seminar of the ComTalks series

The speaker:

Hassan Metwalley obtained the Master Degree and PhD in Electronics Engineering at Polito; after working in the IT department of big companies such as Ferrero and NEC Europe, in 2018 he brought Ermes from a scientific paper into a cybersecurity company, with a market value of over 10 million euros. Registering a +400% YOY Growth, the innovative technology of Ermes is today revolutionizing the corporate cybersecurity systems, offering fully automatic solutions based on Artificial Intelligence.


The battle to tackle cybercrime has never been more complex given the large amount of personal information exposed on the web that hackers exploit to execute customized cyberattacks. Here I’ll present the journey of bringing a Turin-based startup to challenge the big names in the cybersecurity arena, with the ambition of revolutionizing web navigation to make it secure with the solution designed by Ermes for private users too.

Moderated by professor Marco Mellia (Politecnico di Torino - SmartData@PoliTO)

After the talks, a Q&A session will follow to discuss with the Speakers about their experiences, and motivation in taking their master studies.
