Workshop Overview

On Tuesday, 25 August 2020 GlobalPlatform, with support of Primary Sponsor and Full Member Winbond, is hosting an open, in-person workshop on IoT Security and Certification Schemes. This free-to-attend workshop takes place in Zhubei City, Taiwan and is open to GlobalPlatform members and non-members.

Taiwan and the significance of this Workshop

To transform Taiwan into a critical force in the global economy, the Taiwanese government has prioritized six core strategic industries in its 5+2 Innovative Industries Program.

The intention is to continue to develop its information and digital industries to take advantage of Taiwan’s strengths in the semiconductor and ICT industries to secure a central role in global supply chains, and make Taiwan a major base for the development of next generation technologies, including IoT and AI.

This includes development of a cybersecurity industry that can integrate with 5G, digital transformation, and Taiwan national security, striving to create cybersecurity systems and an industrial chain that can protect the country and earn the world’s trust.

GlobalPlatform has enabling technology that will help achieve these goals, and the Workshop will serve as an important step in this journey.

With a mix of local on-site speakers and GlobalPlatform virtual presenters, participants will share a great opportunity to interact with subject matter experts. The workshop will offer both technical and business oriented content, providing market and business context for the need to secure our connected world.

Workshop Overview

The growing number of IoT products, and the complexity of these connected things, introduces new challenges to the traditional security evaluation process. IoT products are made up of multiple components, which are developed by multiple players, many of which are new to security. A myriad of different regulations and certification frameworks create an added layer of complexity for the IoT vendors, developers and service providers tasked with demonstrating the security capability of their products.

This Workshop will provide the latest information about Secure Component technologies and security evaluation methodologies, specifically designed to support IoT device makers and certification bodies to establish their own IoT device security certification schemes.

The Workshop will focus on Secure Component solutions and accompanying certification schemes that are available today, giving delegates the tools and consultation they need to have an immediate impact on their own company IoT initiatives.

Who should attend:

We are welcoming all those interested in IoT Security and Certification Schemes, including:

  • Research and development
  • Systems integrators
  • Software developers
  • Program / project managers
  • Security experts
  • Product suppliers
  • Technical consultants
  • Test laboratories
  • and all others who are also involved with development and deployment of secure IoT devices and services and associated certification schemes
