Now in its second year, the ETSI security week will consist of an IoT Security Workshop running from Monday 13 to Wednesday 15 June 2016 followed by the ETSI Technical Committee CYBER plenary meeting taking place from 15 to 17 June 2016 and the hosted AIOTI Workshop on 16 June.

The 2016 ETSI Security Week will take place in Sophia Antipolis, France on 13-17 June 2016.

IoT Security Workshop

The ETSI Internet of Things Security Workshop will take place on 13-15 June 2016 and will focus on the technical, business and policy implications of securing the Internet of Things (IoT), taking examples from the most relevant IoT domains such as Automotive, Smart City and the Industrial Internet.  

Over recent years, IoT has rapidly become a mainstream technology, with an unprecedented number of connected products being deployed in our homes, cars, businesses and connected cities. Only recently have we really started to question the security and privacy implications of connecting everything to the Internet and sharing our personal data from billions of devices over multiple applications. With the ever increasing number of off the shelf connected devices, often with only minimal security mechanisms, comes an ever increasing variety of potential new security threats.

The workshop will examine:

  • What specific security threats arise from the Internet of Things?
  • What are the priorities for securing the connected car, medical devices, and critical infrastructure?
  • What Policy initiatives are currently addressing the issue of IoT Security and Privacy?
  • What is being done by Industry to secure the Internet of Things?
  • What innovative R&D work is being done in the area of Secure and Trusted ICT systems and devices?
  • How can infrastructure and devices be better secured to protect against potential security hacks?
  • What International initiatives are examining the issue of IoT Security and how can this benefit the industry?
  • How can standards and international cooperation help rapidly progress the solutions needed to secure the Internet of Things?

This event provides an ideal opportunity for participants to hear experts present and debate about the latest IoT Security threats, the global initiatives that may respond to those threats and the key protective measures that exist and could be further developed using standardized solutions.

The stable agenda is now available !
