Seeks reviewers for security best practice guidelines
Release Date: July 28th 2016
Two board directors and security expert members from the IoT Security Foundation (IoTSF) will be seeking input from hackers and security researchers at Blackhat and DEF CON 24 for best practice guidance documentation during the first week of August:
Analysts agree that the opportunity for IoT is significant, yet along with the opportunity also comes a significant security risk. The IoT Security Foundation is a growing stakeholder community and was established to respond to a wide range of security concerns in emerging and developing markets. In order to drive the pervasiveness and increase the quality of security in IoT domains, IoTSF has prioritised its early work in the unregulated markets of consumer and the smart home by forming a number of working groups to address the acute and common issues.
Two of those working groups will be represented at Blackhat and DEF CON with leaders of those groups seeking expert reviewers to ensure the published best practice guidance meets the quality and fitness objectives set.
IoTSF Board Directors David Rogers and Ken Munro will be available to meet at Blackhat and DEF CON – contact via twitter
