*IoT Nation and the Internet Society New York Chapter (ISOC-NY) present
'How to Make Trustworthy IoT' - an IoT Privacy & Security Workshop with the
Online Trust Alliance (OTA) *

*Where: The Hub @ Grand Central Tech, 330 Madison Ave, NYC*
*When: Monday October 8, 2pm - 3:30pm*

While the vast number of Internet of Things (IoT) applications promise to
impact almost every industry vertical, the growth of IoT is strongly linked
to properly addressing the issues of security and privacy. Threats are not
just breaches, embarrassing accidents, bad data handling practices, but
also the risk of resulting ham-fisted regulation. A larger issue is public
confidence in the industry as a whole, in a word 'Trust'.

The Internet Society, founded in 1992 by the inventors of TCP/IP, has made
its mission the fostering of independent collaborative processes to resolve
the technical, social, and policy Internet development issues via such
multistakeholder fora as the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). In
2017 it merged with the Online Trust Alliance (OTA) to launch an initiative
to enhance online trust, user empowerment, and innovation. The OTA has a
broad membership including leading corporations, academic institutions, and
other stakeholders. Together they have developed a set of key resources for
IoT developers, including the *IoT Trust Framework*
an *Enterprise IoT Security checklist*
a *Smart Home Checklist*
and more. At this workshop you will have the opportunity to not only become
familiar with these resources, but also bring your own issues and expertise
to the ongoing process of improving them.

This is the first such workshop in NYC, and the benefits for the NYC IoT
community are not just to take advantage of the vast experience that has
gone into the OTA guidelines, but also to contribute to their ongoing

*Admission is free. Refreshments will be provided*.


The Online Trust Alliance is an Internet Society initiative. OTA’s mission
is to enhance online trust, user empowerment, and innovation through
convening multi-stakeholder initiatives, developing and promoting best
practices, ethical privacy practices, and data stewardship.
