MathEmbedded is delighted to join the IoT Security Foundation, a non-profit organisation dedicated to promoting the security to the specifiers, manufacturers and users of Internet of Things devices.

The IoTSF organisation is in the process of getting under way and is holding a Plenary meeting on the 30th November 2015 in London.

The aim of this meeting is to:

  • Update members and prospective members on the steering board priorities
  • Solicit views on working methods and programme activities for the next quarter

Following this meeting, the IoTSF will be holding its inaugural 1 day IoT Security Foundation Conference on December 1st 2015 at The Royal Society, London.

The agenda is to cover:

  • IoT security, the big picture
  • Real world case studies of IoT security breaches and how to avoid them in future
  • Making it safe to connect

IoT security is complex and involves a wide range of companies such as silicon manufacturers, device manufacturers, software suppliers and operators all the way to the end users and owners.  Each part in this complex supply chain must consider security and it is our hope that the IoT Security Foundation will become instrumental in helping this to happen.

 

 

MathEmbedded organised the "Industry" section at the recent "Smart Home Breakthrough" event (held in London on 19th November at RIBA).   At this event, the SH&BA Smart Home security panel released a first "Request for Comments" version of a leaflet aimed at consumers buying Smart Home devices.

You can find the full PDF leaflet at the SH&BA website.

This leaflet has now been passed on to retailers and consumer groups, with the aim of getting something that can be released to the public in the near future and we would welcome all comments regarding this leaflet.  If you email me at This email address is being protected from spambots.
