Building an Internet of Trust
Security is often considered in strictly technical terms, but in the future worlds of IoT, many parties will be involved in delivering and maintaining devices, data and services – from chip vendors and software developers through ODM’s to service providers. Maintaining security needs not just good encryption, it demands that every party in the supply chain recognises the importance of security and implements it in the business processes, products and systems. Somehow industry needs to build a “chain of trust” which will allow each player to identify trusted suppliers and in turn provide trusted products and services to their customers.
The conference will look at what it takes to build an Internet of Trusted Things, what is currently underway, what we can learn from the past to predict the future and the necessary duties of care providers and adopters need to ensure.
This 2nd IoT Security Foundation Conference is a one-day event and follows on from the 2015 conference held at the Royal Society and the original IoT Security Summit at Bletchley Park.
The primary targeted audiences for the conference are the technology providers and the technology adopters of IoT, alongside academia, press, government and wider stakeholder groups.
Once again the 2016 IoTSF Conference is set to have a senior and expert level line up of speakers – we’ll be making successive announcements along the way on this website and via our newsletter (register with this site to receive updates).
An accompanying table-top exhibition will complement the conference track and the day ends with a drinks reception allowing extra time to discuss the themes of the day and additional networking.
