Addressing today’s IoT security challenge takes more than technology solutions. It requires experience, industry knowledge and expertise, collaboration and creativity. Most importantly, it takes a group of leaders that share a common goal.
Today, we are honored to announce that Cog has become a member of the Global Semiconductor Alliance (GSA) and the GSA IoT Security Working Group. The GSA IoT Security Working Group was established to address end-to-end issues in IoT Security. It is comprised of various IoT ecosystem security stakeholders including chipset vendors, platform companies, cloud vendors and service providers. The goal is to promote best practices on IoT Security, share information on threats and attacks, define security requirements and inform standards bodies.
In collaboration with the other members of the GSA IoT Security Working Group, Cog is honored to have the opportunity to lead a project focused on using Rich Execution Environments to drive enhanced security on End-Point Devices. This is but one of the many projects currently under sponsorship of the GSA, but is critical to supporting the industry with recommendations on standards and best practices to secure the rapidly expanding number of IoT devices being deployed in the home, workplace, and manufacturing segments
As cyber threats and attacks continue to become more aggressive and complex, organizations like the GSA will be critical to staying ahead of the hackers and providing the IoT industry with a security framework based on best practices and standards. We look forward to being a part of that effort and contributing to improving IoT security for enterprise and consumers alike.
