Some form of modern technology can be found in almost every part of
the world now, but some areas that lag behind may not have the
resources needed to implement necessary security tools. Having grown
up in the Argentinian mountains where there are few computers,
Veronica Valero Sarachos, researcher at Czech Technical University,
recognizes these issues and strives to give back to communities like
hers by working with them to help detect threats.
