Today at the RSA Conference 2017 in San Francisco, our Chief Internet Technology Officer Olaf Kolkman will be speaking as part of a panel on:
The abstract of the session is:
The rise of IoT has brought forth a new generation of devices and services representing significant innovation, yet all too many ship insecure and are not supported over their life. They have become proxies for abuse with a capacity for causing significant harm. Can we wait for industry and stakeholders to adopt trust frameworks and seal programs or do we need government to step in?
The panel starts at 8:00am Pacific (UTC-8) in the Moscone North 130 room. Unfortunately it is not being live streamed, but you can follow our @InternetSociety account on Twitter for live updates.
As background reading related to Internet of Things (IoT) security, I suggest:

- Collaborative Security: An approach to tackling Internet security issues
- Responsible Disclosure from a Collaborative Security Perspective
