Stanislav Dashevskyi

PhD, Security Researcher

Email (personal) :


I received my Master's degree in Automation and Control Systems from the National Mining University of Ukraine (Dnipro), and my Ph.D. from the International Doctorate School in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) at the University of Trento (Italy) under the supervision of Prof. Fabio Massacci. Before starting my Ph.D. studies, I worked as a software quality assurance engineer at Sitecore (Ukrainian office).

Currently, I am a Sr. Security Researcher at Forescout Research Labs. My main research interests are network and software security, I am happy to be mostly doing vulnerability research. Some of my recent projects can be found below.
