IoTSF was formed as a response to existing and emerging threats in vertical applications of the Internet of Things. IoTSF was launched on September 23rd 2015 in London following an intensive consultation with a wide range of stakeholder organisations including industry, academia, government, regulators and businesses seeking to use IoT technologies to drive their commercial development.
Today, IoTSF is an international, collaborative and vendor-neutral initiative led by industry and inclusive of all technology providers and service beneficiaries. It operates on a non-profit model. The mission of IoTSF is to make the Internet of Things secure, to aid its adoption and maximise its benefits. To do this IoTSF promotes knowledge and clear best practice in excellent, appropriate security to those who specify, make and use IoT products and systems. IoTSF achieves its mission through awareness, education and best practice initiatives based on international security standards. These are targeted at key stakeholder groups across the life-cycle of IoT systems expressed in our mantra of Build Secure, Buy Secure, Be Secure.
IoTSF is now the global home for IoT security and the natural home for IoT product and service vendors, equipment suppliers, network providers, technology adopters, researchers and industry professionals. For more information, visit our website here: https://www.iotsecurityfoundation.org
