IoT Security Masterclass: Establishing a Flexible Framework to Address Market Diversity
Wednesday, 24 May, 11:15 – 12:00
White Room, Hilton Hotel
From connected cars and drones through smart metering and logistics tracking to smart lighting and smart waste management, the diversity of the Internet of Things is as promising as it is challenging. The IoT can only be realised if all services are secure, and customers are relying on companies to mitigate cyber security risks and protect their personal data. But too strict a security policy will slow down innovation and hinder the growth of the industry.
A flexible framework is therefore vital for the successful scaling of the IoT; only flexible IoT security processes and recommendations can address the huge diversity of IoT solutions that will come to market in the next few years.
This masterclass will explore appropriate IoT security guidelines and evaluation methods that are flexible enough to accommodate the diversity and unique challenges of the IoT, including the security and reliability of low power wide area solutions, a new set of technologies that will connect up billions of new devices.
11:15 – 11:20 Introduction
11:20 – 11:30 Why a Flexible Security Framework is Key for IoT Security
11:30 – 11:40 The Benefits of IoT Security Assessments
11:40 – 11:50: How Secure are Low Power Wide Area Networks?
11:50 – 12:00 Q&A
Director, Franklin Heath Ltd.
Craig Heath has worked in computer security for almost 30 years now, on UNIX, enterprise Java, mobile, and embedded device platforms. Today he provides independent security consultancy, as well as chairing the IoT Security Foundation’s working group on Vulnerability Disclosure and volunteering at Bletchley Park, the home of the World War II codebreakers.
Craig has co-authored several computer security publications, including the book “Symbian OS Platform Security” and the Open Group’s “Technical Guide to Security Design Patterns” and “Guide to Digital Rights Management”, and has contributed to many published security standards and recommendations. He also enjoys public speaking and helping those new to computer security to cut through the hype and appreciate the fundamental principles which lie behind the practice.

Meet the Experts
Meet subject matter experts from the GSMA Internet of Things Programme at the GSMA Hub and learn more about IoT Security. Find out about unique challenges of the IoT, how the GSMA IoT Security Guidelines and Security Assessment can help overcome them, and what role security plays for low power wide area (LPWA) solutions.
This event is free to attend for everyone who has registered for GSMA Mobile 360 Series – Privacy & Security.
In cooperation with our partners The Hague Security Delta and The Municipality of The Hague, Mobile 360– Privacy & Security explores the state of network security and data privacy today and examines best practices across a variety of industries. This event includes a combination of keynote speakers, panel discussions, technology demonstrations and in-depth case studies that address the growing importance of privacy and security across the globe.
Especially the Internet of Things will be in the centre of interest, with billions of new devices and services to be connected around the world, all of which need to be secure, reliable and trusted. With the GSMA IoT Security Guidelines and the IoT Security Self-Assessment, the GSMA’s Internet of Things programme provides valuable resources for anyone seeking to build secure and scalable IoT solutions.
