The IoT Community and CertNexus Partner to Address Global IoT Skills Gap Offering the world’s only ANSI/ISO 17204 accredited IoT Certification: Certified Internet of Things Practitioner (CIoTP) CIoTP

Rochester, New York – July 26, 2019 – CertNexus, the global purveyor of vendor neutral, emerging technology certifications and micro-credentials  and the Internet of Things Community® (IoT Community®), the world’s largest and longest standing global independent IoT Community, today announced a partnership to facilitate and accelerate closing the rapidly expanding Internet of Things (IoT) skills gap.

According to a report by Inmarstat, 76% of companies surveyed require additional senior, strategic-level staff with skills in IoT, and 80% do not possess the IoT skills required to ensure their current IoT solutions will work as intended. According to Bain and Company, the IoT industry is on its way to becoming a $450 billion industry, and organizations will require investments in training and validating skills in order to succeed in this rapidly growing environment.

The two organizations have signed an agreement that provides the industry workshops and other turnkey training solutions to the world’s only ANSI/ISO 17204 accredited IoT Certification: the Certified Internet of Things Practitioner (CIoTP). The IoT Community will have members access to CertNexus’ certifications and micro-credential through virtual classes, access to digital books and virtual labs, and sit for CertNexus exams.  Additionally, CPE credits will be assigned to IoT SLAM and Master Class events to continue the certification maintenance.

“The development of IoT technology is only as good as the business value derived.  To ensure true value, the solutions must be deployed and secured—a tremendous challenge facing the industry,” says Nancy Shemwell, Chief Operating Officer, IoT Community. “Offering CIoTP, the only ANSI/ISO 17204 accredited IoT Certification is a key development in the Community’s value chain. Partnering with CertNexus and their best-in-class training and certification offerings is a natural extension.  Corporations now have access to develop and validate the necessary skills to successfully implement and secure IoT solutions.”

“We are dedicated to bringing innovative training and certification solutions to the global marketplace,” said Jeff Felice, President, CertNexus. “Partnering with The IoT Community to offer CertNexus training and certifications helps us to accelerate the value we can bring to IoT professionals and the businesses they represent. Together, we believe we can provide tremendous value to the Community and the industry as we embrace the emerging opportunities contained within the Internet of Things.”

Internet of Things (IoT) Community announces dates for inaugural IoT Master Class series

Inaugural Master Class Series to focus on IoT Security, Privacy and Trust

Series forms part of IoT Community’s Security, Privacy & Trust IoT Center of Excellence (SPTIoTCoE) domain expertise initiative

Raleigh, North Carolina, May 2, 2019 The IoT Community® (Internet of Things Community®), the world’s largest community of corporate executives, IoT professionals and practitioners, today announces the 2019 master class panel of cyber and security industry experts and academics who will provide input and peer reviews in developing best practices for IoT standards and real-world use cases. These classes will be offered to our IoT Community members throughout the year – free of charge and form part of more IoT Community Master Classes that will be announced across vertical and industry application areas of enterprise, industrial and consumer IoT.The timing of this announcement comes in response to the unexpected, yet welcomed developments that transpired at The IET’s Living in IoT conference on May 1, 2019 , in which the IoT Community attended and presented at – and in which Government Minister for Digital and the Creative Industries, Margot James MP, also attended and spoke at, revealing proposals for a new Consumer IoT law; which attempts to ensure and validate consumer IoT device security through the use of an IoT label. Minister James, also responded to key IoT Community questions, relating to the proposed plans to incorporate privacy and trust into the label; and responded to how the government was planning to mitigate risks and threats to critical infrastructure, posed by IoT.

The summer SPTIoTCoE session commences:

  • June 4, 11:00am – 2:00pm central CST – Dr. Chase Cunningham, Principal Analyst at Forrester Research Inc.: Zero Trust architecture
  • July 10, 11:00am– 2:00pm central CST Mike Saylor, President & Co-Founder of Cyber Defense Labs and university Professor:  loT criminal/forensic best practices.
  • August 6, 11:00am – 2:00pm central CST Jeff Schmidt, CEO for identity assurance company Authomate: IoT privacy issues.

We are extremely excited to bring this initial series to our members.” Said CoE co-chair Nancy Shemwell “The ability to learn from leading executives in the cyber industry is just one more value we are delivering to our membership. We aim to expand this curriculum with additional sessions to be announced later this year. With the news that came out of the UK yesterday at the IET Living in IoT conference, it is great to hear grass-roots IoT Community concepts – like the IoT Facts label, which BoA member Tamara Dull introduced to the IoT industry may now come to bear”.

Kevin Grant of the IoT Community, was a presenter at the Living in IoT event, outlining why IoT takes a village. During his presentation, Kevin discussed how to apply IoT Security best practices to realize international mutual benefit, for common efforts to deter and thwart cyber criminals – and the harm they seek to do to consumers and society.

We concur with Minister James, that consumer IoT Security is an area that needs significant attention to ensure the safety and protection of critical infrastructure, ensuring such devices do not get compromised to create a giant bot-net army, which could have dire consequences, and harm the UK’s national interest. Our SPTIoTCoE Master Class aims to provide guidance and best-practices to IoT security right, across industrial, enterprise and consumer IoT landscapes. We look forward to sharing the best of the best practices for global audiences to learn from and apply“ Kevin Grant, IoT Community Founder.
