Launch: The Internet of Insecure Things

Speakers Eliza Chapman, Tom Uren, Tom Scully and Michelle Price

Please join ASPI for the launch of the new issues paper, The Internet of Insecure Things. 

With thanks to the generous support of Jacobs Australia, ASPI’s International Cyber Policy Centre has been conducting research regarding the Internet of Things (IoT) and its implications for Australia.

The IoT is the term being used to describe the growing number of devices being connected to the internet, which range from personal electronic devices to industrial equipment.

While there are many notable advantages of living in an interconnected world, there are also some justifiable concerns about the level of security that these internet connected devices contain and the problems this can cause.

In December 2017, ASPI’s International Cyber Policy Centre produced a discussion draft asking stakeholders key questions about IoT regulation, governance, market incentives, and security standards, to help inform this issues paper. The paper addresses how IoT impacts critical infrastructure, surveys proposed regulation and legislation and assesses the IoT landscape in Australia.

The issues paper will be launched by Ms Gai Brodtmann, Shadow Assistant Minister for Cyber Security and Defence, followed by an expert panel discussion.
