  • Dealing with security updates
  • Data sharing, transparency and notification norms
  • Encryption of data for IoT devices
  • Dealing with non-automated updates
  • Compliance and incentivization for manufacturers and policymakers
  • Notice and consent with IoT; disclosure norms and notifications
  • IoT and children
  • Breach notifications and IoT
  • Consumer protection tactics and strategies
  • Dealing with vulnerabilities in IoT devices

Rajnesh Singh, our Regional Bureau Director for Asia-Pacific, will be speaking a this event.

During the event we launched our annual Survey on Policy Issues in Asia-Pacific 2018. In its fifth instalment, this year’s survey focuses on the security and privacy of the Internet of Things (IoT).

We want #TrustByDesign in all IoT devices and better industry standards to help you #SecureIt
