The rapid growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) has facilitated incredible opportunities for the digital transformation of goods and services. However, as the number of global connections scales and we see the world embracing digital transformation across multiple sectors, we also see a rise in cyber security threats. The PSA Certified Security Reports continuously highlight a number of key IoT security challenges, but also a strong desire from industry leaders to collaborate on solutions and secure the future of the IoT.
This inspired the launch of the PSA Certified podcasts. With PSA Certified partners and industry leaders including Microsoft, AWS, Flex, Eurotech and the DCMS, our host David Maidment (Senior Director of the Secure Device Ecosystem at Arm- a PSA Certified Co-founder) dissects the challenges of IoT security, the lessons we can learn, and how we can collaborate to secure the future of the IoT.
By listening below, you can expect to learn about cybersecurity standards, cybersecurity for SMBs, and the role the different members of the value chain play in IoT security. You’ll also get advice on how to implement best practice security from a range of industry-leading guests and how the ecosystem must come together to build trust in the IoT.
IoT Security at the Edge with Eurotech
David is joined by Marco Carrer, CTO of Eurotech, to examine the emergence of edge devices. They discuss what we mean by edge devices, the crucial role the edge is playing across all industries, and the challenges of edge security. We also discuss the benefits of industry collaboration and IoT security frameworks.
Secure by Default with Microsoft
In the second of our two #beyondthenow podcast episodes with Microsoft, we take a deep dive into IoT security with Eustace Asanghanwa (Principal Program Manager for Security, Azure IoT, Microsoft). Eustace and David discuss the challenges of IoT security, how to implement it and how resources like protection profiles can help. They also discuss how Microsoft Azure’s PSA Certified Level 1 certification is helping to facilitate better collaboration with the ecosystem.
Myth-busting with DCMS: “Cybersecurity standards are not as fragmented as you think”
Peter Stephens, previously the Head of Secure by Design Cybersecurity at DCMS, joins us on the #beyondthenow IoT security podcast to discuss consumer attitudes towards IoT security. He also provides the governmental perspective on cybersecurity standards and shares how DCMS is working to make the UK and its devices more secure.
Developing Smart Lighting Security with ams OSRAM: “If it’s smart, it can be hacked”
Jan Münther, Head of Digital Product Security at ams OSRAM, joins our host David Maidment, on the #beyondthenow IoT security podcast to discuss smart lighting security. We examine the cost of security failure, growing consumer expectations, and how company culture needs to change for us to effectively implement security best practices.
Modernizing Automotive Cybersecurity with Bosch: “Autonomous is 30 years away”
