The IoT Security Foundation would like to identify and celebrate organisations which demonstrate good IoT security stewardship as part of the IoTSF’s mission to raise security standards and drive best practice adoption.
Applicants will submit a concise application form which will provide enough information for judges to assess their suitability and claims. It will be important to support statements with simple-to-verify evidence to enable an efficient judging process.
Within the application form we will invite applicants to submit evidence of security stewardship in one of more of the following areas:
Product or Service Design
Internal Organisational Processes (for example, senior management responsibilities, risk assessment, design and maintenance processes etc.)
Third party testing evidence
External Statements (for example having a public vulnerability disclosure contact point)
Influence on products procured or retailed
Influence on the supply chain
Adoption of Best Practices such as those provided by IoTSF
Applicants are further encouraged to identify aspects of security stewardship not covered in the above list.
Winners will be unveiled during the TechWorks Gala Dinner & Awards Ceremony Event on 22nd November 2018 at the Grange Tower Bridge Hotel, 45 Prescot Street, London, E1 8GP.
Who can apply?
The award is open to organisations that develop IoT products for the market OR act as a retailer or distributor OR deploy/use IoT to enjoy a business benefit such as productivity/efficiency gains or enabling an innovative service.
Applicants can be of any size organisation. The judges will make their decision based on the relative commitment made by the applicant – this is about demonstrating the importance of security to an organisation and/or its customers. As such, the judges will be looking for evidence of “walking the walk”.
Applicants can be from any sector and any part of the world.
Applicants do not have to be IoTSF members to apply for the award.
The winner of the award will receive reputational and profile raising benefits. Tangible elements include: a physical award, a certificate, a press release and digital assets which can each be used for marketing purposes.
The IoT Security Foundation is the global champion for IoT security; as such this award is both prestigious and unique.
