IoT Tech Expo Global Virtual will be taking place online on March 17 and 18. This key event is an opportunity for experts involved in the field to debate and present their views in areas as varied as cyber security, digital twin, climate change, digitization or AI.
IEC will be present at the event and one of its key experts on standards for the IoT and digital twin, François Coallier, will be explaining his vision during a panel discussion Building your Defence – Security for the IoT eco-system. It will kick off at 12.20 GMT and topics addressed will be transparency, best practices for manufacturers and users as well as emerging technologies.
Among many things, Coallier will allude to the difference between information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) and how that difference has an impact on cyber security, especially when it comes to the industrial IoT (IIoT). “There are no fully secure systems: implementing security is fundamentally a risk management exercise, and that is where standards can help. It should also be noted that security is only one attribute that contributes to the trustworthiness of IIoT systems. Other attributes that may need to be taken into account are safety, availability, resilience and privacy, which require benchmarks“, he says.
