We were invited by the Cloud Ecosystem EV to participate in a series of IoT Innovation Workshops taking place in different cities across Germany: Berlin, Frankfurt and Munich in September 2018.

The format was very interesting and productive: it started with approx. 2:30 of presentations related to IoT. Ranging from different use cases, analytics to IoT security. After a short break, the work was transformed with the “world cafe” format. Basically it was broken down into 4 small work groups, each with a topic: industrial analytics, 5G, industrial data spaces (IDS) and blockchain technology.

A specialist on each topic served as moderator to set the scene of the discussions and try to keep them on track. In this case all of them were very well versed in there topics. These sessions where really productive to get a kickstart on some of the topics and understand the pain points of different industries on each of them.

I had the pleasure to attend and present on two of the events: Frankfurt and Munich. I had about 30 min to talk about IoT security. I started with an overall introduction into IoT and IoT security, highlighting the vulnerabilities and frameworks to protect them. Finally I took them through a use case with Baby Cams, to highlight the typical findings and their implications.

Here is a teaser of the talk and before the end of the year, we will share the complete video from the presentation in Munich with the subscribers of our newsletter. So if you are still not part of it, now is a good chance to do so.



With these events, we got to meet very interesting people and company. Since then we have decide to become members of the Cloud Ecosystem and we will be working on security with the organisation and its members.

Here are some impressions of both events.
