ETSI virtual Security Week 2021: recorded presentations now available

Sophia Antipolis, 25 June 2021

The ETSI  Security Week 2021, that took place virtually from 14 June to 18 June, successfully closed with an audience of  more than 1000  viewers joining from over 70 countries!

The new virtual format allowed for even more diverse participation from around the world. The event gathered a diverse range of stakeholders to debate five aspects of cybersecurity with presentations, panel discussion and live Q&A sessions.

The ‘Securing Artificial Intelligence’ sessions introduced the problems and solutions to securing AI and how to test AI, the goal being to develop guidelines for testing of AI and AI-based system taking account of the different algorithms.

In the ‘Internet of Things (IoT)’ sessions, IoT and the next Cybersecurity Act Scheme were presented while another set of presenters from industry, government agencies and laboratories gave their feedback and experience around IoT certification.

The third day addressed ‘Network Function Virtualization (NFV)’, its risks, threats and vulnerabilities that need to be tackled for the future, bringing trust to 5G networks. Another session introduced NFV standards – and particularly ETSI standards – and how they can mitigate and address these critical issues.

The ‘Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC)’ day gave a standardization overview on MEC security, highlighting how MEC technology can serve many important use cases for 5G. It addressed, for instance, 5G edge computing, automotive, and software security and maintenance for MEC devices.

The last day focused on cybersecurity policy with the future plan for standards under the Cyber Security Act. Topics included 5G certification under the CSA, the transition from current schemes to CSA schemes, a return of experience on the new procedures and the accreditation of labs and the impact to and contribution from SMEs. 

ETSI would like to thank the Programme Committee members, as well as all speakers and attendees for this very fruitful virtual exchange and we hope to see many of you next year for the ETSI 2022 Security Week – hopefully in ETSI’s premises in the South of France, otherwise yet again virtually.
