Talking Internet of Things in Canada at IoT613 This Week

Megan Kruse
By Megan KruseBusiness Director, Online Trust Alliance

This week, 8-9 May, we’ll be at IoT613 in Ottawa, Canada, talking about our work on “Trust by Design” – the idea that privacy and security should be built into Internet-connected products, and not just an afterthought. We have been working with manufacturers to embrace the Online Trust Alliance’s IoT Trust Framework, which identifies the core requirements manufacturers, service providers, distributors/purchasers and policymakers need to understand, assess and embrace for effective IoT security and privacy. We also work to encourage consumers to demand security and privacy and to help policymakers create a policy environment that strengthens trust and enables innovation.

This week in Ottawa, we’ll have an Internet Society booth at the event both days, and on 9 May, Mark Buell, North American Bureau Director, will be part of an “IoT in Canada” panel that will “explore current IoT trends in Canada, identify the benefits of IoT for businesses and citizens and find out how Canada’s IoT ecosystem stacks up compared to the rest of the world.” Mark will speak about the Canadian Multistakeholder Process: Enhancing IoT Security, an Internet Society-led initiative to develop a broad-reaching policy to govern the security of the IoT for Canada. 

From its website, IoT613 “fosters a culture of knowledge, sharing, and growth within the local and global IoT community. Through our varied programs, we provide a platform for technology, business, and policy professionals to learn, connect, and interact for the advancement of technology and economic development in the National Capital Region.”

Join us in Ottawa, come chat with us about IoT, privacy, and security, and read more about our work on the Internet of Things
