ETSI Security Week 2016: facing the IoT security challenge

Sophia Antipolis, 6 June 2016

Join us on 13-17 June to debate the latest developments with global security experts

The Internet of Things presents new security challenges which are only now beginning to be addressed.

Security-week-news-2016Join ETSI at our Security Week 2016 event from 13 to 17 June 2016 at ETSI, Sophia Antipolis, France, to discuss IoT security and discover the measures ETSI is taking to ensure “security by default” in our IoT standards.

The Internet of Things is now a mainstream concept, with an unprecedented number of connected objects being deployed in our homes, vehicles, businesses and cities. Only recently have we really started to question the security and privacy implications of connecting everything to the Internet, which implies sharing our personal data from devices with multiple applications. With the ever increasing number of low cost, and off-the-shelf IoT devices, often with only minimal security mechanisms, we will be faced with an ever increasing variety of potential new security threats.

ETSI Security Week 2016 will combine the ETSI IoT Security workshop running from 13 to 15 June and the ETSI Technical Committee CYBER plenary meeting from 15 to 17 June. ETSI will also be hosting an AIOTI (Alliance for Internet of Things Innovation) Security and Privacy workshop on 16 June.

Our Internet of Things Security workshop (13 to 15 June) 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, health, smart city and the industrial internet. International security experts will share their research and experience, and discuss relevant issues when facing IoT security challenges across the various domains. The conference will include a number of interactive panel sessions, and new for 2016, both demonstrations and poster sessions organized alongside the main event.

ETSI’s Technical Committee CYBER will open its plenary meeting exceptionally to non ETSI members upon request, in order to allow insight into our standardization process, working procedures and ongoing discussions.
