Many organisations project that by 2020 there will be approximately 30 billion internet connected devices globally making up the Internet of Things (IoT).

Security and privacy has often been an afterthought for IoT device manufacturers, leaving consumers and companies that buy these devices vulnerable to cyber attacks.

This briefing event, hosted by the Institute for Security Science and Technology, will introduce the IoT security work of Imperial College academics and semiconductor intellectual property giant, Arm Limited, with relevance to security practice and policy.

The aim of the event is to convene key stakeholders from academia, industry and policy communities to hear about latest research from Imperial College and our event partner Arm, and to provide an opportunity to network and form new connections.


Dr Hamed Haddadi is Senior Lecturer and the Deputy Director of Research in the Dyson School of Design Engineering at Imperial College London. He is also a Visiting Professor at Brave. Hamed’s leads the multi-university Data Box project which envisages a connected device to mediate access to an individual’s personal data by verified and audited third party applications and services.
