This month I have the honour of being the presenter at the YOW IoT Meetup and I hope to see you there. Please bring all your questions. I look forward to providing guidance and suggestions to your projects. Here is the outline for my discussion:
Security and Privacy for IoT: A Standards Based Approach
IoT has the promise to change our lives and provide interactions that were previously unheard of – with upwards of 20 billion devices connected. However, one of biggest barriers to adoption is security and privacy.
Daily reports of compromised networks and systems have become common place and many IoT services and solutions will be based on this same architectures and techniques – risky! The only way to change the IoT security landscape is to change our approach to design.
Our discussion will explore how to make security and privacy part of your daily ritual with the aim to significantly reduce the cyber exposure of your products and solutions. As we are quite active in the development of both IoT and security standards, we use a standards based approach to solving these problems.
International standards provide a global yardstick from which to base build and design solutions. In the age of IoT, even small companies are being forced to think globally.
We will look at:
- ISO standardization of IoT
- Security considerations for your organization
- Security considerations at design and development
- Testing and evaluation of IoT solutions
- Privacy considerations and practices
We will record all the questions we get and post them for all to see. I am sure that you will agree with me that it is important to share as I believe the same root issues and problems are being experienced by many product and solutions organizations.
