The Need for IoT Security Standards & Certification. Global IoT Day Roundtable

April 8, 2022 @ 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm Europe/Zurich Timezone



To celebrate Global IoT Day, IOTAC is organizing an online roundtable on “The need for IoT security standards & certification” with the participation of the European Commission, ENISA, leading SDOs, and some of the premier partners of European IoT research.

As IoT security remains a key concern, the participants will discuss the need for harmonized IoT security standards and the progress leading to a mandatory, at least Europe-wide, IoT security certification scheme, with major players shaping the IoT security landscape.
