This world leading IoT Security Conference has built a loyal global following from the IoT stakeholder communities and is renowned for delivering high quality conference programmes.

IoTSF Managing Director John Moor said “We are delighted that IAR Systems and Secure Thingz are partnering with us as Conference Headline Sponsors. Secure Thingz is a global domain expert in device security and embedded systems, and have been helping IoTSF make it safe to connect since our launch in 2015 with their security expertise and leadership on the Executive Steering Board. We look forward working together to further aid industry to build secure, buy secure and be secure.”

Haydn Povey, CEO and founder of Secure Thingz commented “Security is a critical component for all connected devices and has become the main concern for the embedded industry focused on accelerating IoT adoption. Furthermore significant global legislative frameworks for security are emerging, with the California State requirements due to come into effect 1st January 2020, hence the time to act is now. The impact of these growing challenges means the embedded industry needs to rapidly transition to a “security first” design methodology. The IoTSF, Secure Thingz and IAR Systems all share a goal of aiding that transition.”

The IoTSF Conference will feature 40+ speakers over the ‘big picture’ plenary sessions and four breakout tracks. In the plenary sessions, we will be exploring markets, policy, regulation, assurance, standards and certification as all stakeholders work together on the security agenda. Within the four breakout tracks, we will be illuminating industry challenges with the security by design, applied security, resilience and training tracks.

Secure Thingz CSO Dr. Stephan Spitz &  Product Manager Clive Watts will be presenting a talk on why a robust device identity is necessary for accountability, counterfeit and cloning protection on the security by design breakout track, find out more here
