Copper Horse’s popular IoT Security workshop is back on the road and coming to a city near you year. The first venues to be confirmed are Windsor, UK, and Innsbruck, Austria, with more locations in the pipeline.
Why IoT security training is more important than ever for businesses in 2022
Today, the cyber security of the Internet of Things (IoT) is a pressing issue for device makers and software developers as governments around the world strengthen their stance on what an acceptable product looks like. More and more countries are reaffirming their guidance for IoT providers, noting the risks that poorly configured equipment poses to users and infrastructure.
Once assessment criteria and compliance programs are in place, authorities will have the power to fine IoT providers (up to GBP 10 million or 4% of global turnover, in the case of upcoming UK legislation) and prevent access to key markets – so it is more important than ever for businesses and their staff to know what good practice looks like. And this is exactly where Copper Horse’s ‘Foundations of IoT Security’ course fits in.
What you will learn from the training course
Over two days, attendees will learn what it takes to raise the baseline of IoT security products and services. gain an understanding of the attacker and threat landscape as well as understanding the technical standards, policy and regulatory environment.
Specifically, by the end of the course, participants can expect to:
- understand the foundations of how to secure a connected IoT product,
- be able to discuss the main threats and attacks on IoT products and services,
- understand the viewpoint of an adversary, as well as the tools and techniques they use,
- know how to research and assess IoT threats and risks as they arise,
- be able to work effectively with security researchers on reported IoT security issues and concerns,
- understand how to implement and run a Coordinated Vulnerability Disclosure (CVD) scheme,
- have the knowledge to be able to develop a security patching strategy and product update life-cycle,
- develop a good working understanding of the best practices and assurance framework laid down by the IoT Security Foundation.
By selecting the residential option, attendees receive full accommodation, all food and drink, and – most importantly – can continue the conversation on IoT security by networking with their peers.
Meet the team
The training team this year is stronger than ever with David Rogers (Copper Horse founder and CEO) and Mark Neve (Copper Horse Technical Lead) being joined by Richard Marshall – whom many will know as the IoTSF’s Plenary Chair.
At the IoTSF, Richard has played a key role in promoting IoT security as lead author of the organisation’s well-regarded compliance framework, which has been downloaded more than 7000 times by designers, specifiers and buyers of IoT products. He has spent over 30 years in the electronics and communications sectors – including positions at Lucent Technologies, Sony and Cisco – and brings valuable experience in taking various IoT products to market.
