Webinar on Cyber Security – M2M/IoT

International Webinar on “CYBERSECURITY for M2M/IoT” on May 12, 2022

IoT technology is being used to create smart infrastructure in various verticals such as Power Sector, Automotive, Safety & Surveillance, Remote Health Management, Agriculture, Smart Homes, and Smart Cities etc. The hacking of the devices/ networks being used in daily life would harm companies, organisations, nations and more importantly people, therefore securing the IoT eco-system end-to-end i.e., from devices to applications is particularly important. An IoT network that has been compromised may result in the collapse of services, creating panic and chaos

ETSI EN 303 645, based on the earlier TS 103 645, is specifically designed for Cyber Security for consumer IoT devices and covers baseline requirements, set of security and privacy requirements and recommendations for manufacturers to implement in their products. Based on the principles available in this standard, the Code of practice securing consumer IoT has been released by TEC in August 2021. EU, UK, Australia, and some other countries are also having the similar guidelines.

To allow exchange of updates around “IoT Security: Policy Prospective, Legislation & Standards”, “M2M/IoT Testing & Certification: Global, Regional & Local Framework” between representatives of India and Europe and to identify the next steps for the ongoing cooperation in this area. A webinar on CYBERSECURITY for M2M/IoT was organized jointly by Telecommunication Engineering Centre (TEC), the technical arm of Department of Telecommunications (DoT) along with Delegation of the European Union to India including Project InDiCo and SESEI, on 12th May 2022.

It was inaugurated by Sh. Nizamul Haq, Member (Services) Digital Communication Commission (DCC), Government of India along with Mr. Tonnie De Koster, Advisor, DG-CONNECT, European Commission, Sh. R.R. Mittar, Sr. DDG and Head, TEC and Sh. Sushil Kumar, DDG(IoT), TEC.

This webinar was attended by around 150 participants across the globe and the presentations were made by experts from India and Europe. Eminent speakers from the European Commission (EC), the UK Department for Digital Culture Media and Sport (DCMS), the European Union Agency for Cybersecurity (ENISA), ETSI, TSDSI, the India Future Foundation, Idemia, DEKRA and the Global Certification Forum (GCF) shared their knowledge on IoT Security – Policy Prospective, Legislation & Standards and M2M/IoT Testing & Certification – Global, Regional & Local Framework.

The webinar was organized in two technical sessions chaired by DDG(IoT) and DDG (MTCTE), TEC. Some of the topics were related to the technical report Code of Practice for consumer IoT security released by TEC, which provides baseline requirements consistent with the recommendations from ETSI EN 303 645. Standards-based approach will allow sustainable solutions to be developed, with the aim to prevent any form of unauthorised and malafide access to smart devices and the network. This webinar is in line with the Government of India’s initiatives for the establishment of cyber security infrastructure and to safeguard and secure consumer devices, utilities, and industrial equipment.
