IoT Security Experts Group

ENISA launches this Call for Participation to invite experts in security of Internet of Things to participate in its expert group. The creation of the ENISA IoT SECurity (IoTSEC) Experts Group aims at gathering experts in the domains of the entire spectrum of Internet of Things to exchange viewpoints and ideas on cyber security threats, challenges and solutions.

 

ENISA defines Internet of Things as an emerging concept describing a wide ecosystem where interconnected devices and services collect, exchange and process data in order to adapt dynamically to a context. Internet of Things is tightly bound to cyber-physical systems and in this respect is an enabler of Smart Infrastructures by enhancing their quality of service provisioning.

The threats and risks related to Internet of Things devices and services are manifold and they evolve rapidly. With great impact on citizens’ safety, health and privacy, the threat landscape concerning Internet of Things is extremely wide. Hence it is important to understand what needs to be secured and to develop specific security measures to protect Internet of Things from cyber threats.

ENISA IoTSEC group is an information exchange platform that brings together experts to ensure security and resilience of the entire Internet of Things ecosystem.

Experts of the IoTSEC group shall have background expertise on one or several of the following:

  • Internet of Things with a focus on cyber security;
  • Suppliers and developers of Internet of Things hardware and/or software with a focus on cyber security;
  • Associations and not-for-profit organisations involved in Internet of Things security;
  • Regulation bodies, academia, standardisation bodies and policy makers.
