We congratulate Pontus Johnsson, Professor at the Division of Network and Systems Engineering, who has been named EECS Person of the Year, with the justification:

"Pontus Johnson receives this award for his work with education in ethical hacking and for his research on analytical method for detecting weaknesses in IT systems. His research has raised great interest from both media and industry, putting KTH and EECS on the map of Cyber Security - a strategically important area. Pontus Johnson also holds a central position in the forming of KTH’s new research center in Cyber defense and Information security which is carried out in cooperation with the Swedish Armed Forces."

The prize was established in 2018 and aims to draw attention to people who have made major efforts for the EECS school and/or strongly contributed to the visibility of our business.
The recipient receives a travel grant of 25,000 SEK.
