  • How to Make Trustworthy IoT - OTA Privacy & Security Workshop

    The Hub @ Grand Central Tech

    ** RSVP at https://trustworthyiot.eventbrite.com ** While the vast number of Internet of Things (IoT) applications promise to impact almost every industry vertical, the growth of IoT is strongly linked to properly addressing the issues of security and privacy. Threats are not just breaches, embarrassing accidents, bad data handling practices, but also the risk of resulting ill-advised regulation. A larger issue is public confidence in the industry as a whole, in a word 'Trust'. The Internet Society, founded in 1992 by the inventors of TCP/IP, has made its mission the fostering of independent collaborative processes to resolve the technical, social, and policy Internet development issues via such multistakeholder fora as the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). In 2017 it merged with the Online Trust Alliance (OTA) to launch an initiative to enhance online trust, user empowerment, and innovation. The OTA has a broad membership including leading corporations, academic institutions, and other stakeholders. Together they have developed a set of key resources for IoT developers, including the IoT Trust Framework, an Enterprise IoT Security checklist, a Smart Home Checklist, and more. At this workshop you will have the opportunity to not only become familiar with these resources, but also bring your own issues and expertise to the ongoing process of improving them.

  • Digital Preservation: Business Models and Financial Incentives (with Vint Cerf)

    In 2018 the Internet Society New York Chapter (ISOC-NY), with the support of Google, has embarked on a new project to explore and define Digital Preservation principles, protocols, and practices. For this, the second event in the series, we are looking to engage the NYC tech and VC community, thus our focus will primarily be on the fiscal and entrepreneurial aspects. However, all aspects of digital preservation will be on the table. Keynote speaker and interlocutor will be Vint Cerf, Chief Internet Evangelist, Google. February 5th, 5:30 - 7:30pm at Google NYC — focusing on business / financial motives Please RSVP here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/digital-preservation-ii-business-models-and-financial-incentives-with-vint-cerf-tickets-42501837139 Wine and light snacks will be served While in-person participation is recommended, the session will be livestreamed via the following channels https://livestream.com/internetsociety https://www.facebook.com/isocny/ https://www.facebook.com/InternetSociety/ Remote participation via Twitter: @isocny + #digitalpreservation KEYNOTE SPEAKER Vinton G. Cerf is vice president and Chief Internet Evangelist for Google. Widely known as one of the "Fathers of the Internet," Cerf is the co-designer of the TCP/IP protocols and the architecture of the Internet. ABOUT DIGITAL PRESERVATION Our culture and society has been enriched by the creation and proliferation of the Internet. Information has become increasingly more accessible and has enabled so many of us to become active creators rather than passive consumers of content. With that, we’re experiencing an explosive growth of digital data, with 2.5 quintillion bytes of data created every day and that data needs a place to live. Not only does our data need a place to live, but it needs a place to survive into the future. What happens if years from now, we are no longer able to access our photos, documents, music — essentially all the records of our lives? We will not only be forgotten, but we’ll be thrusting the future into a ‘digital dark age’. WASHINGTON EVENT - JAN[masked] Our first digital preservation event focused on policy issues.
