How to Make Trustworthy IoT Workshop

Let’s make our increasingly-connected world a safer place. #SecureIt

IoT Nation and the Internet Society New York Chapter (ISOC-NY) present ‘How to Make Trustworthy IoT’ – an IoT Privacy & Security Workshop with the Online Trust Alliance (OTA)

While the vast number of Internet of Things (IoT) applications promise to impact almost every industry vertical, the growth of IoT is strongly linked to properly addressing the issues of security and privacy. Threats are not just breaches, embarrassing accidents, bad data handling practices, but also the risk of resulting ham-fisted regulation. A larger issue is public confidence in the industry as a whole, in a word ‘Trust’.

In 2017 the Internet Society merged with the Online Trust Alliance (OTA) to launch an initiative to enhance online trust, user empowerment, and innovation. The OTA has a broad membership including leading corporations, academic institutions, and other stakeholders. Together they have developed a set of key resources for IoT developers, including the IoT Trust Framework, an Enterprise IoT Security checklist, a Smart Home Checklist, and more. At this workshop you will have the opportunity to not only become familiar with these resources, but also bring your own issues and expertise to the ongoing process of improving them.

This is the first such workshop in NYC, and the benefits for the NYC IoT community are not just to take advantage of the vast experience that has gone into the OTA guidelines, but also to contribute to their ongoing development.

Watch the keynote speech of Jeff Wilbur, Technical Director, OTA.
