IoT/RFID Security and Privacy workshop

Workshop: Securing IoT in practice

Smart products, smart homes, and smart societies; increasingly, we are surrounded by smart products, but how do these devices affect aspects of privacy and security for people and businesses? What can manufacturers or users of IoT devices do to ensure that all these smart devices are not used to violate people’s privacy – or even to commit cyber crime?


In this workshop, experts from Siemens, Danfoss and the Alexandra Institute will address what can be done to ensure that smart or traceable products meet internal and external security expectations, as well as customer privacy expectations and EU regulations. In the fast-growing market for IoT, it is not only essential to build trust with costumers, but also to ensure compliance with data protection laws – especially with the coming General Data Protection Regulation from the EU where companies failing to comply will be facing massive fines.


At the workshop, you will gain insights into important considerations, state-of-the-art and standards in the field of IoT and RFID, as well as into how security and privacy solutions are implemented in practice. The program includes expert presentations, Q&A sessions, plenum debates and a workshop. Your takeaway will be applicable and concrete knowledge that you can use to handle security and privacy challenges in relation to IoT and RFID in your own company.
