The future of IoT security: CEN and CENELEC to participate to DIGITALEUROPE event

On 8 September (11.00-13.00, Brussels time), Elena SANTIAGO CID, CEN and CENELEC’s Director General, will speak at the high-level event organised by DIGITALEUROPE “The future of IoT security: What's next?”.

The event is dedicated to discussing a study DIGITALEUROPE carried out on the future of cybersecurity for the Internet of Things (IoT). The study takes place in a context of enhanced attention to ensuring the security of IoT devices, and makes proposals for decision-makers: the European Commission has put forward a number of policy proposals to introduce cybersecurity requirements on connected devices. Furthermore, the IoT, in both its consumer and industrial aspects, is also expected to be one of the future areas for cybersecurity certification pursuant to the Cybersecurity Act.


After the presentation of the results, Mrs Santiago Cid will have the opportunity to present CEN and CENELEC’s work on cybersecurity during an interactive discussion with other high-level speakers, representing the European Commission, civil society organisations, national authorities, the industry and other European Standards Organisations. The audience will include MEPs, Council representatives, academics and professionals in the digital sector.


More information on the panel and on how to subscribe are available on DIGITALEUROPE’s website.
