Security Week

  • There is no charge for this event
  • ETSI Headquartersexpand

Following our highly successful series of annual Security Workshops, we expanded our event to extend the Security Workshop with more focused thematic streams, to provide more time for networking and offered opportunities for ETSI security-related committees to hold open meetings which all delegates could attend. 

This week was an ideal opportunity to learn about the full extent of ETSI’s security related standardization. 

The ETSI Security Week consisted of:
a Workshop followed by Workshop Thematic Sessions and discussions on standardization work carried out in ETSI groups.


Each workshop, thematic session and meeting requires separate registration. Plan ahead and book your place now – space will be limited at some of the sessions.

The Security Workshop took place on 22 - 24 June.
It ended with some thematic sessions which ran in parallel on 24 June afternoon.

The Workshop :

  • Involved industry, governments, research institutions, academia, as well as European institutions and organisations outside Europe, to talk about their security related work and future plans
  • Showcased state-of-the-art security standardization technology and innovation, and discuss with speakers and audience about the making and the practical use of standards
  • Debated on specific critical issues that the security stakeholders address or intend to address, and how ETSI and other SDOs (Standard Developing Organisations) can help towards such efforts
  • Proposed demos and discussions on security weaknesses, then how to make products and services secure by design/default, and how to modify/enhance standards wherever necessary
