National Group Seeks Policymakers, Internet of Things Industry Leaders to Join Security Action Committee
April 16, 2019 / Business Wire
The Canadian Multistakeholder Process to enhance Internet of Things (IoT) security has a game plan to secure Canada’s connected future and will form an action committee to put it in play on April 18 in Ottawa. In April 2018, the Internet Society and the Ministry of Innovation, Science, and Economic Development Canada (ISED) teamed up with Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA), Canadian Internet Policy and Public Interest Clinic (CIPPIC) and CANARIE to convene a multistakeholder process to develop a broad-reaching policy on IoT security. The group’s final meeting will explore recommendations developed by over 100 stakeholders across Canada on network resilience, device labeling, and consumer education. The group will also seek members to join a volunteer committee of IoT security leaders to put the recommendations in action.
