A Research Review of IoT Security
Speakers: Dr. Manar Alalfi & Altaz Valani (See Bio's Below)

These days, a new class of software is emerging that operates/manages the Internet of Things (IoT) devices. The global IoT market is expected to reach US$2488 billion by the end of 2022. With the current level of competition, the rush to improve time to market often results in a lack of security considerations during the design phase. In addition, there is no standard body for IoT security regulations to adhere to; consequently, every business must decide independently what security controls to employ, without a baseline for the bare minimum.
In this webinar, we will discuss the classification of software vulnerabilities for a specific type of consumer IoT platform as an initial step toward providing support for regulatory and compliance standards.

Key Takeaways
1. Get IoT security insights from an academic research perspective.
2. An opportunity to contribute and get involved with joint research initiatives.
