Dutch research organisation TNO has launched in cooperation with the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC-NL) a new guide to “Dealing Securely with the Internet of Things”.

The guide gives insights and information about implementing equipment and processes that may be considered to relate to IoT, as well as support to structure this process and to identify pitfalls.

The guide is a collaborative effort of experts from industry, government and research and has been developed in cooperation with NCSC-NL. It gives guidance in applying IoT in a secure and safe manner, is based on various considerations and focal points, and works regardless of size and scale; from a minor experiment to an organization-wide deployment.

The guide offers useful information and practical insights for Information Security Officers who are using, or are planning to use, IoT. Other readers and players interested in security and IoT may find it useful too.

The guide was first publicly-presented at the International One Conference that took place from 16-17 May in the World Forum in The Hague, Netherlands.

TNO (Toegepast Natuurwetenschappelijk Onderzoek) is a nonprofit company based in the Netherlands that focuses on applied science. It is a knowledge organisation for companies, government bodies and public organisations.

TNO commented that it will continue its research in the field of IoT, varying from new areas of application to IoT security aspects.
