Today our CEO presented at IoT613 an Ottawa based conference focused on all things IoT. There was also a developer day before the conference as well. The conference had really good attendance including several vendors or other organizations working in this area. If you are interested in this topic plan to attend the conference next year, speakers provide a range of views and experiences.
Our presentation focused on how to evaluate IoT products and solutions for both security and privacy. The lack of education in this area is of concern as many product companies are amping up their marketing to “assure” of product safety but yet many products have never undergone formal testing and certification nor do many even have secure by design or privacy by design approaches. Security for most IoT vendors is an after thought. When purchasing one of these products assume that security and privacy testing has not been conducted.
If you did not make it out to the presentation please find it attached, we hope that it helps to be better understand the issues.
