IoT Community Announces Formation of Security, Privacy & Trust IoT Center of Excellence (SPTIoTCoE) as Part of its Domain Expertise Initiative

Security, Privacy & Trust Center of Excellence will engage industry thought leaders to enable community learning, best practice sharing, and provide actionable guidance for IoT security practitioners

RALEIGH, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The IoT Community® (Internet of Things Community®), the world’s largest community of corporate executives, IoT professionals and practitioners, today announced the formation of its security, privacy and trust focused IoT Center of Excellence (SPTIoTCoE), which will be Co-Chaired by Nancy Shemwell, Chief Operating Officer of the IoT Community and Dipto Chakravarty, Chief Technology Officer at Exostar. Ms. Shemwell previously served as the Chief Executive Officer at the cybersecurity firm, Vericlave, and currently serves as Chair of their Board of Advisors. Serving as Vice Chair of the CoE is Jason Cook, Managing Director at the Chertoff Group.

“I am honored to announce the formation of our SPTIoTCoE, and proud to work with industry experts Dipto and Jason,” said Ms. Shemwell. “Our charter is to provide meaningful, actionable IoT security input to established security frameworks and standards, provide industry master classes, use-cases, and best practice advice. This CoE will bring together a team of security icons whose knowledge in the Security, Privacy & Trust IoT domain will add a strong voice to the ever evolving effort to secure the IoT networks.”

The IoT Community also has established its 2019 master class panel of industry experts and academics who will provide input and peer reviews in developing best practices for IoT standards and real-world use cases, with classes offered to IoT Community members throughout the year.

  • Mike Saylor, President & Co-Founder of Cyber Defense Labs and university Professor: loT criminal/forensic best practices.
  • Jeff Schmidt, CEO for identity assurance company Authomate: IoT privacy issues.
  • Adam Isles, Principal at The Chertoff Group: Building an effective IoT framework leveraging MitreAtt&ck™ TTP.
  • Mark Weatherford, SVP & Chief Cybersecurity Strategist at vArmour: 2019 legal and regulatory IoT environment.

“As the digital revolution is now upon us we are at an inflection point where lots of wonderful technology is being created, but counter to this is a significant increase in security risk,” states Mr. Cook. “Our CoE is creating value by providing a continuous feedback loop into the design, production, application of IoT with the intent that we make ‘things’ more secure. The CoE aims to collectively endorse, leverage and enhance security protocols and standards such as Mitre Att&ck, NIST, and Zero Trust frameworks.”

The initial areas of coverage that form the SPTIoTCoE pillars of excellence are:

  • Security, Privacy & Trust Provider Strategy
  • IoT Security
  • IoT Privacy
  • IoT Trust
  • Security, Privacy & Trust Investments via VC-JV-PE (Venture Capital, Joint Venture, Private Equity)

Bringing home the need for thought leadership in this area, Mr. Chakravarty states, “As the scale of the Internet of Things continues to grow exponentially and becomes orders of magnitude larger than the Internet of Users, the impact of the power shift to the edge in today’s password-less economy becomes increasingly profound. IoT’s single lens view creates a ‘Wild West’ operating environment filled with insecurity, zero trust and the potential for private data leaks that’s downright scary. These are the challenges our Center of Excellence is addressing. It is imperative for organizations to join us as we collectively must define and adopt best practices for security, privacy and trust in the new era.”

“Security, privacy and trust issues remain the primary concerns and barriers to widespread IoT / IIoT uptake. Today we are delighted to announce the formation of our SPTIoTCoE, to be led by industry veterans in Nancy, Dipto and Jason, bringing deep domain expertise and know-how, to create a framework that can provide a solid pathway for cyber and IoT security practitioners, providers and institutions implementing IoT products and services, to get security right – instilling trust in consumers, and enterprises that the IoT is real, privacy issues can be tamed, and ultimately it can be made safe and secure,” said David Hill, executive director, IoT Community.

The SPTIoTCoE will provide thought leadership content on https://iotpractitioner.com; will conduct a master class program and will participate in other IoT Community events including this year’s IoT Day Slam 2019 (April 9, location virtual, www.iotslam.com) and the IoT Slam Live (June 19 – 21, R.T.P North Carolina USA, www.iotslam.com).

The Internet of Things Community Announces Zuora has Joined its Elite IoT Ecosystem as an Exclusive Gold Corporate Member

Zuora Chief Scientist Carl Gold to present at the IoT Grand Slam December 11th

SAN FRANCISCO November 20, 2018The IoT Community (Internet of Things Community, the world’s largest community of CxOs and IoT professionals and practitioners, announces Zuora, the leading cloud-based subscription management platform, has joined the ecosystem of elite IoT thought leaders as an exclusive Gold Corporate Member. Zuora will work collaboratively with the community to address the wide variety of barriers, inhibitors, and technical and operational issues that accompany the IoT ecosystem.

IoT is moving beyond innovations around efficiency and into realm of considerable monetization possibilities. When companies can actually start selling the outcome that the product was purchased for, then the product itself becomes a means to an end. Companies today realize they must move beyond products into value added services — away from static product features to new and recurring subscription experiences. They have to create services that can learn and adapt based on behavior and usage. Services that can improve themselves autonomously. Services that can be truly customized. Zuora helps these companies monetize their new digitally connected services.

Carl Gold, Chief Scientist of Zuora, will present a general session at the IoT Grand Slam titled: This session will explore how many IoT companies pursue growth with subscription business models. While growth rates may fluctuate, and are susceptible to broader market trends, recurring revenue models offer sustained and predictable returns that largely avoid the volatility of traditional “boom or bust” product cycles. Attendees of this session will learn about benchmark growth and performance metrics for IoT, and how it compares to other core vertical segments.

“Having visionary innovators like Zuora join the IoT Community at Gold-level elite membership is an honor. We are privileged to have their expertise and leadership in the SaaS subscription space and we are elated to collaborate with them going forward,” said Nancy Shemwell, COO and IoT Community Advisory Board Member. “We are honored and grateful to have Zuora aboard.”

“Zuora is thrilled to officially join the IoT Community as we’ve been amazed by the results our own IoT customers have demonstrated. We look forward to bringing learnings from the Subscription Economy to share with the other industry thought leaders and members.” said Carl Gold.

“We are delighted to welcome Zuora as an elite Gold member of our IoT Community. Zuora is on the cutting edge of the subscription economy, and will be instrumental in community discussions about how to utilize, monetize, and profit from IoT. We look forward to their insights and expertise,” said David Hill, Executive Director of the IoT Community.

Bill Mortimer, Vice President of Strategic Marketing at Spirent and IoT Community Advisory Board Chairman said, “We welcome Zuora to our community; we look forward to their unique experience and perspectives on how to navigate the monetization opportunities that exist in the IoT landscape.”
