Welcome! This is the Personal Web Site of Marco, Casassa Mont - Bristol, UK. I am a Professional with more than 20 years experience in the areas of ICT, Security, Big Data, Analytics, Cloud Computing, Privacy, Identity and Access Management. My CV is accessible online. My up-to-date profile is available on My LinkedIn Page.

I am currently a
Principal Architect and Technologist (Master Level) at Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Security and Cloud Organisation,  Bristol, UK.
My work and expertise are in the following areas:  

  • Security
  • Big Data for Security and Analytics
  • Cloud Computing
  • Information Management
  • Enterprise Technologies
  • Event Management, SIM/SEM solutions
  • Identity and Access Management (IAM) Technologies and Solutions

During my 20 years at HP Labs and Hewlett Packard Enterprise, I have been the technical lead in programs and projects aiming at developing innovative security solutions for the enterprise and cloud. I carried out R&D work, designed, architected, developed and transferred various security and big data solutions to Hewlett Packard business units. I am also currently involved in the EU SHIELD project (security for the enterprise and cloud, using NFV and big data security analytics). I was a key member of other  international projects (in the security, identity management and privacy areas), such as the EU F6 PRIME project (Privacy and Identity Management for Europe) and UK TSB EnCoRe project (Ensuring Consent and Revocation). In this latter  project I was the Project Coordinator and Architetecture lead.

I am a technical lead in the areas of: Security; Big Data for Security; Security Analytics; next generation Cloud solutions.

I recently led the development of a Big Data for Security (BD4S) project, with specific focus on its overall architecture, backend analytics engine, security analytics and data processing pipeline: this solution uses Big Data analytics to identify new, unknown threats and attacks. I run joint pilots with customers and  Hewlett Packard Cybersecurity defence team. During 2014-2015 I and team transferred this solution to our software business unit: it has been productised as the DNS Malware Analytics solution (DMA). In 2016 I carried out further work to extend this big data for security solution to: detect a wide range of attacks, spanning across the entire Kill Chain by collecting and analysing various types of big data sets; applying it to next generation of Hybrid Cloud and Software-Defined Cloud.  Other recent deliverables include R&D work in the space of Safe Cloud  (Cloud Computing; Safe and Controlled Information Sharing; Situational Awareness for next-generation disaggregated IT scenarios); Security Intelligence-as-a Service (SILAS) and Situational Awareness for companies operating in the Cloud.

I am active on the publication and patenting front. I am part of various (IEEE, ACM, etc.) conference Program Committees. I am a Senior Member of IEEE. I am also an IISP member. I have more than 50 patents filed (about 80, considering  patents filed in multiple countries) and 18 patents granted.
