Bringing Security and Privacy to the Forefront of the IoT

In a world where connected devices are expected to reach 21 billion by the year 2020, we’re at a critical turning point where we need to ensure security is a top priority in Internet of Things implementations. As an organization with a history of bringing industries together to move technologies forward, we’re taking the initiative to bring the same positive impact to IoT to address top-of-mind IoT security and privacy concerns.

As part of this effort, the Smart Card Alliance formed the Internet of Things Security Council, which provides a single forum where all industry stakeholders can network, share implementation experiences, and discuss applications and security approaches, as well as provide best practices and education to the industry to promote security and privacy.

The council will focus on IoT markets where security, safety and privacy are key requirements, and will leverage the expertise and knowledge gained from implementing embedded security technology across other industries to provide practical guidance for secure IoT implementations. 

You can learn more about the council by visiting our about page. We’ll also post new council resources as they become available, so be sure to check out our resources page for updates.
