Worldsensing exposes the importance of IoT security with the CIPSEC Project at the Smart City Expo World Congress held in Barcelona from 15 to 17 November 2016.
Apart from the commercial novelties, the company´s innovation team presented updates on prestigious projects such as the CIPSEC initiative which aims to create and offer the most advanced solution to protect critical infrastructures from cyber attacks.
Security has not kept pace with the internet. Hacking and malware, which are headaches for individuals and companies, can be devastating for critical public infrastructure. A new Horizon 2020 project, “CIPSEC” (Enhancing Critical Infrastructure Protection with Innovative Security Framework), aims to seal off this vulnerability with a unified approach. Swiss security company Empelor GmbH brings its expertise in access security to the 13-member project consortium.
Worldsensing is working at the forefront of IoT security
Within the CIPSEC project Worldsensing is responsible for identifying, preventing and detecting cyber attacks to wireless networks. The insight acquired over many years of engineering and consulting in the IoT industry puts Worldsensing in a unique position to contribute to the consortium.
