NIST’s Cybersecurity for the Internet of Things (IoT) and Privacy Engineering Programs are heading to the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) on January 9-12, and are looking forward to meeting with a range of stakeholders. CES is one of the largest technology trade shows with more than 184,000 attendees and about 4,000 companies exhibiting in 2017.
The NIST Cybersecurity for IoT Program – in close collaboration with the Privacy Engineering Program – is preparing guidance to help federal agencies manage IoT security and privacy risks. This guidance is aimed at considering a practical approach to IoT security and privacy risk management.
Overall, NIST’s Cybersecurity for IoT Program works toward developing standards, guidelines, and related tools to improve the cybersecurity of connected devices and the environments in which they are deployed.
What are we up to at CES…and what are we hoping to achieve?
- CES is hosting a roundtable with NIST on IoT-specific capabilities and their associated risks on January 10th.
- As always, we want to hear from you! The discussion draft on our approach for the guidance is available online – we will discuss this in the session, as well as throughout the week.
- We’d love to catch up with you in the exhibit hall.
Overall, we’re interested in hearing from industry, academia, and government on how the IoT community can better understand the overall security and privacy landscape. We also want to know what NIST can do to support these areas.
Can’t make it? We’d still love to hear from you – you can email us with feedback on the discussion draft, your thoughts on the topic, and collaboration ideas. Get in touch – we can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can’t wait to talk about #IoTSecurityNIST and #NISTprivacy with you!
