Senegalese Multistakeholder Process: Enhancing IoT Security (Event #1)

‹ Back
IoT is an incredible opportunity but also a risk - too many IoT devices bring ‘Insecurity by Design’ with them. We need better IoT security and privacy. #SecureIt #IoTSenegal

The Internet Society and its Senegal Chapter, in partnership with the Ministry of Communications, Telecommunications, Postal Services and Digital Economy (MCTPEN) and the Telecommunications and Postal Regulatory Authority (ARTP) organized the inaugural multistakeholder meeting on enhancing security of the Internet of Things (IoT) in Senegal.

The meeting was followed by the workshop on the multistakeholder model from 30 to 1 December 2018.

These workshops aim to develop and improve knowledge, skills and collaboration within the Internet community in Senegal.
