Secure Technology Alliance Webinar Series: Role of PKI in IoT & Trusting Data at the Edge

It’s estimated that there will be more than 64 billion internet-connected devices by 2025. But many implementations have prioritized easier, faster deployments over security. With the rapidly increasing number of IoT devices and services coming to market, it’s important that IoT implementers and vendors consider basic security principles. The Secure Technology Alliance is hosting a two-part webinar series to provide best practices for protecting data and securing IoT devices throughout the entire IoT ecosystem.

There’s been a meteoric rise in the number of IoT devices on the market, and now the industry is playing catch-up with security. It’s critical that IoT implementers, product vendors and service providers understand the elements needed to secure the IoT and every internet-connected device. This series will explain security features, approaches and best practices for securing the IoT including the use of public key infrastructure and management of IoT data collected or stored at the edge.

The second webinar, “Trusting Data at the Edge,” will be led by Sri Ramachandran VP, Americas Head of IoT & Mobility Solutions and Services, G+D Mobile Security. This webinar will cover the security requirements for trusting and managing data collected and/or stored at the edge of the IoT network and approaches for ensuring data integrity, privacy and authenticated access control.

 This series was developed by the Alliance’s IoT Security Council – a member-driven forum where all industry stakeholders can discuss applications and security approaches, develop best practices and advocate for the use of standards for IoT security implementations. The council welcomes participation from organizations involved in the many IoT ecosystems to participate in these efforts, as well as to network and share implementation experiences.
