Event Synopsis:
With the growth of the Internet-of-Things (IoT) comes not only opportunities and benefits for our society, but also substantial safety and economic risks. In an effort to combat these risks, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued guidance underlining strategic principles for IoT device security. Though these principles are nonbinding, the standards set by DHS will likely set the industry and legal standard for what is considered reasonable security. IoT device manufacturers are expected to be vulnerable to scrutiny by regulators, the plaintiffs' bar and the courts if they do not consider the DHS guidance.

In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of thought leaders and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group will provide an overview of the DHS' Strategic Principles for Securing the Internet of Things and its potential impact to the standard of IoT cybersecurity. The speakers will offer best practices to adopt this guidance, thus, enabling businesses to create a responsible level of security for IoT devices and systems.

Key topics include:
• DHS' Strategic Principles for IoT: An Overview
• Scope, Purpose, and Audience
• Implications to IoT Security Standard
• Best Practices on Strengthening IoT Security
