“We’re all in this together”
Think of the IoT Security landscape as a pie: we need to grow it so it covers the world, many players need to have a good slice of it, but we must all agree to share the same sort of pie.
The ingredients are being made in different parts of the world, in governments and in the private sector and in organisations like IOTSF.
But no one is quite sure yet of the recipe. And you cant make a pie without a good recipe. This is the challenge we face in the immediate future. And we will only solve it through collaboration
