Announces speakers and issues a call for papers
Release Date: August 31st 2016
The Internet of Things Security Foundation (IoTSF) has announced its starting line-up of speakers for its second annual conference and is inviting the security community to further submit talk proposals. The conference is to be held at the Institution of Engineering and Technology in London on December 6th and follows on from last year’s events at The Royal Society and Bletchley Park.
The theme for this year is “Building an Internet of Trust” and strongly aligns with IoTSF’s mission to make it safe to connect. As part of the theme IoTSF will be promoting the concept of the supply chain of trust and encourage suppliers of all denominations to consider their duty of care towards their customers.
The conference has a dual track; a senior level track focused on policy, management & best practices together with a technical track looking at vulnerabilities, hacks and how they can be avoided.
Speakers announced today include Professor Ross Anderson (University of Cambridge), Martin Borrett (IBM), David Alexander (PA Consulting) and Kevin Sheldrake (BT) – see side bar.
John Moor, Managing Director for IOTSF commented “there continues to be a great deal of concern in the media and cynicism within industry around IoT security and related matters of safety and privacy – and rightly so. However it’s also important to balance that concern by taking a look at what is being done, what can be done and what must be done to improve the current situation – that’s the theme of this conference. We’re delighted to announce our starting line-up today and we’ll be announcing more in due course”.
IoTSF has also issued a call for papers to support the theme of the conference and has invited interested parties to submit abstract proposals to the organising committee for consideration.
