ISOC Canadian Multi Stakeholder meeting: Securing the Internet of Things

This past week I was fortunate to be invited as a guest speaker for the 1st Internet Society meeting on IoT security. This meeting was well attended from government, private sector companies and academia. It was a means to get on the same page to issues at hand and how do we as users, developers and government secure the Internet and IoT.

The key issues at hand include:

1. Awareness to the issue of IoT Security for Canadian, not just individuals but organizations who want to deploy IoT technologies

2. What exists now from standards and best practice perspective and what approaches can be used

3. What can be done to ensure the next generation of these devices is not a source of another DDoS or other malware on the Internet.

As promised, I am including my presentation and mind map that was presented. Please feel free to share this as necessary, the more groups and individuals who are talking about this subject the better.
