2nd ETSI Security Week – 13th to 17th June 2016
The 2016 ETSI Security Week took place in Sophia Antipolis, France on 13-17 June 2016. Now in its second year, the ETSI security week consisted 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 ETSI Internet of Things Security Workshop focussed 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 examined:
- the specific security threats arising from the Internet of Things
- the priorities for securing the connected car, medical devices, and critical infrastructure
- the policy initiatives currently addressing the issue of IoT Security and Privacy
- industry activity to secure the Internet of Things
- innovative R&D work being done in the area of Secure and Trusted ICT systems and devices
- international initiatives examining the issue of IoT Security and how these can benefit the industry
- standards and international cooperation to help rapidly progress the solutions needed to secure the Internet of Things
The AIOTI Workshop on Security and Privacy in the hyper-connected world took place on Thursday 16 June 2016, and provided the opportunity for delegates to engage with this relatively new organisation, in order to:
- Discuss minimum security and privacy requirements along the entire networked architecture and value chain.
- Contribute to (i)Policy and legislation on security and privacy requirements, (ii)Standards, and (iii) Labelling / Certification
The 7th meeting of ETSI TC CYBER took place from 15 June (pm) until 17 June 2016.
