GlobalPlatform News – Fall meetings, SESIP EN adoption, and the SIDI Hub Initiative

Letter from GlobalPlatform’s Executive Director

Our annual Fall Meetings are taking place in Athens from November 6-10. We’ll be at the Hotel Divani Palace Acropolis in Athens, Greece for an insightful week of discussion and debate as we align on our organizational and technical priorities. Key topics on the agenda include automotive, eID wallet and the inaugural meetings of our SESIP Committee. All GlobalPlatform members are invited to book your place now.

In more SESIP news, the IoT security evaluation standard continues to grow thanks to recognition by the European Committee for Standardization, CEN and CENELEC. By giving stakeholders a single point of reference for IoT cybersecurity, SESIP is helping to raise the bar for security and address the complex and costly fragmentation that currently persists.

I would also like to make members aware of a new whitepaper entitled Trust and Security in Automotive Systems. This resource, developed by the Automotive Task Force, provides an overview of the GlobalPlatform solutions that can be used together or independently to meet current and emerging automotive security requirements.

Finally, GlobalPlatform is sponsoring the Secure Identity Alliance Interoperability Summit at this year’s TRUSTECH event on Wednesday November 29th in Paris. During this session, we’ll be discussing the Sustainable and Interoperable Digital Identity (SIDI) Hub initiative and how industry leaders can collaborate to develop interoperable and accessible green best practices.

SESIP member meeting

As part of our Fall Meetings, we’ll be hosting the first meeting of our newly established Security Evaluation Standard for IoT Platforms (SESIP) Committee. This kickoff meeting will define the roadmap and priorities for the committee going forward and will give attendees an opportunity to help shape the future of the methodology.

This committee meetings will take place in Athens on November 7th  from 14:00-18:00 CET and November 9th 15:30-19:00 CET. SESIP provides a common and optimized approach for evaluating the security of connected products that meets the specific compliance, security, privacy and scalability challenges of the evolving IoT ecosystem.

Adoption of GlobalPlatform’s IoT security evaluation standard grows with European recognition

The World Economic Forum (WEF) reported in 2022 that cybersecurity threats have increased by over 358% in recent years. Multiple regulations have emerged in recent years, but they struggle to keep up with the rapidly evolving nature of these threats.

GlobalPlatform’s Security Evaluation Standard for IoT Platforms (SESIP) methodology provides a standardized approach for evaluating IoT security implementations, tailored to the unique requirements and challenges of the evolving ecosystem. By adopting SESIP, the European Committee for Standardization, CEN and CENELEC, is working to address regulatory fragmentation and better understand, deploy and explain IoT security.

Over the past year, we have held three in-person Cybersecurity Vehicle Forum (CSVF) events in Detroit, Tokyo and Beijing as well as two virtual-mini updates. Each event has brought together relevant automotive stakeholders in each respective region to explore the unique security challenges facing the automotive industry. All of the event materials and recordings from previous CSVF events are available on our website.

After a successful event in Beijing last month, we are turning our attention to the final CSVF event of 2023. Join us on November 14th in Hamburg, Germany, just prior to the automotive cybersecurity event, ESCAR Europe. This event will incorporate learnings and insights from previous CSVF events, and we have confirmed a number of relevant speakers to discuss emerging automotive security threat types as well as the latest on PQC, digital keys and more.
