Hi, I’m Camillo Bosco.  I hold a master’s degree in hydraulic engineering and a PhD in pressure management in water distribution networks for leakage reduction. I currently work as a research scientist in the water and environment group at SINTEF, the largest independent research organization of Scandinavia.

What do you do on DWC?

I have started recently working on DWC. I’m involved in the risk management of cyber-threats related to the digital solutions of the project. I’m preparing a guide for managing the risks from cyber-attacks, such as denial of service, man-in-the-middle, web spoofing, etc. My work moves away from the risk identification and risk analysis to risk evaluation and risk treatment. Specifically, I am currently focusing on the risk analysis phase, where the system under attack is stress-tested to get a clear view of how it would be impacted.

What is the most interesting thing you learned working on DWC?

How international cooperation can solve problems. I think that different ideas and perspectives can significantly improve the quality of the results of our work. For instance, working with the Danish project partners, I realised which aspects were more important to them in managing their water systems.

Where do you see yourself in five years?

I think I will be still working on digital solutions and their applications to solve real-life problems. I would like to remain within the water sector, because that’s my main area of expertise, but I’m also open to other sectors.

What did you want to be when you were growing up?

When I was growing up, I realised that for me it was important to be part of a group where technical skills are strongly linked with creativity. Having the opportunity to express this aspect of my personality has always been important for me. I often work with innovative technical solutions which are rarely standardised. That’s why I often have to come up with out-of-the-box ideas!

If DWC held a party, which song would you request from the DJ?

I would like to request Under Pressure by Queen and David Bowie. I think this amazing song helps us remember that even if there is a lot of hard work and sometimes we may feel under pressure, we can always find the right spirit to enjoy moments together!
