The era of IoT describes the world as it transforms to be ever-digital and increasingly connected. Along with the power of digital comes the reciprocal cyber threat, and we continue to witness an increasing number of attacks enabled by products that lack protection against well-known exploits, have been badly configured or suffer from poor maintenance. This causes businesses to be hesitant, concerns governments, increases the likelihood of regulation and ultimately frustrates markets.
Vendors must build secure, purchasers must buy secure, and users must be secure: to be without security in a digital world is not an option. Society and industry need to fight back as no one should design, buy, or use a connected product, service or system that lacks fit-for-purpose security. Yet there are no ‘one-size fits all’ security solutions – they are dependent on the application. Most of the attacks we see today can be effectively defended against, many by relatively simple measures.
Organisations need to be informed, the solutions presented, choices made, and those choices need to be in keeping with their business context. Welcome to the 2021 IoT Security Foundation Virtual Conference where we aim to illuminate and educate delegates with an update on the threat landscape, standards & regulation, best practice, next-practice and the latest developments in IoT cyber security. The IoTSF Conference features talks by leading cyber security experts and track sessions for executives, developers, engineers, managers and security professionals.
