Kudelski IoT Expands Security Training to North America to Help Businesses Meet Growing Security Regulatory Requirements

CHESEAUX-SUR-LAUSANNE, Switzerland & PHOENIX – (COMMERCIAL THREAD) –Kudelski IoT, a division of Kudelski Group (SIX: KUD.S), the global leader in digital security and IoT solutions, today announced the expansion of its IoT Security Workshops to include training in the US and on-site. Launched at Kudelski’s IoT security labs in Switzerland, the workshops help companies assess current and future threats to their products and learn how to protect themselves against these threats throughout the lifecycle of their products, in particular in the face of increasing safety regulations around the world.

As connected devices enter the market in staggering numbers, attacks against these devices are increasing just as rapidly. In response, governments are responding with a host of new regulatory requirements and guidelines related to IoT security that businesses must adapt quickly in order to continue selling their connected products. The US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the UK Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport and the European Commission have issued or are in the process of issuing a series of guidelines and regulations on IoT security that compels companies to understand and mitigate IoT threats in ways that are often new to them.

“As governments begin to require companies to improve their security, we like to bring engineers into our labs and show them the real and potential threats to their products and how to mitigate them,” said Joël Conus, vice -President of Security for Kudelski IoT. “This is knowledge that is best learned in a hands-on workshop environment, giving even the most experienced engineers new and updated ways to secure their products when they return to their businesses. We look forward to expanding this. workshops in the United States and at customer locations on site. ”

For 25 years, Kudelski laboratories have conducted security research, design of security architectures, security assessments and certification of digital systems. Through thousands of assessments, labs have developed a wide range of assessment techniques and capabilities to test both current hacking methods and ever-evolving hacking methods while always being at the forefront of the game. technology. Focused on connected security since 2012, Kudelski is uniquely positioned to provide comprehensive training for companies wishing to increase their knowledge and skills to face the realities of growing IoT threats and regulations.

“The hands-on experience provided useful insight into the things we need to think about throughout the product lifecycle, from initial design and development to regular upgrades and updates,” continued Cédric Archenoul, responsible for digital product development for Sealed Air. “The information we have received from Kudelski’s IoT security experts will help us achieve our company’s mission of protecting products and people and solving critical packaging issues with innovative and connected technologies that are secured by design. ”

“The workshop was a great experience for our team. We have discovered the cutting edge offensive security techniques used by hackers to attack a device, using an end-to-end strategy that will protect our products from chip to cloud, ”said Nizar Bouchedakh, Software Engineer at SDATAWAY, a company Swiss engineering firm specializing in tailor-made electronic software and IoT solutions. “We’ll use what we’ve learned to defend against the most common attacks, but we’re happy to continue working with partners like Kudelski IoT to help protect against more advanced attacks. ”
