Bureau Veritas to Demonstrate Disruptive Approach to Cybersecurity Testing
Feb. 21 2017
~ … by 2020, more than one out of two connected devices will have an IoT security attack ~
Kowloon Bay, Hong Kong - 21 February, 2017 – Bureau Veritas, leader in testing, inspection/audit, advisory and certification services for the Smartworld, has announced they will be demonstrating their new, and they claim, disruptive, approach to product cybersecurity testing at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain on Stand #1F50 in Hall 1 at the following times:
- Monday, 27th February, 2017: 4p.m. – 5p.m.
- Tuesday, 28th February, 2017: 11a.m. – 12p.m.
- Wednesday, 1st March, 2017: 4:30p.m. – 5:30p.m. (followed by drinks reception to 7p.m.)
- Thursday, 2nd March, 2017: 11a.m. – 12p.m.
Co-presenting will be Bureau Veritas' research partners, CEA-Leti, who will be introducing, and demonstrating, the automated testing of a products physical interface security features (not only the software) thanks to their innovative scanning and fuzzing techniques. Bureau Veritas claim the time taken to scan and identify threats and weaknesses will be significantly reduced, speeding up time to market for the latest IoT devices. The level of protection will also be enhanced thanks to the digitalization of simulated attacks.
Interested Mobile World Congress visitors can join the presentations, part of Bureau Veritas' Industry Insight Series, with attendees benefitting from a copy of CEA Tech's white paper, "Automated and Remote Security Fuzz Testing Tool for IoT Devices". On top of this, visitors to the session held on Wednesday, 1st March, 2017 will additionally gain the chance to discuss their own product cybersecurity challenges with the Bureau Veritas and CEA specialists over a drinks reception on the stand between 5:30p.m. to 7p.m. To express an interest in attending one of the sessions, visitors can register at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BV-MWC2017-BCN. For those that are not able to attend, Bureau Veritas is offering e-copies of the materials post show.
Philippe Sissoko, Director of Operations for Bureau Veritas' Electrical & Electronic Business Line, EMEA Region commented, "Cyber-attacks are about to become more aggressive and complex, especially within the IoT market area. It is estimated that by 2020, around 50 billion connected objects will be launched into markets, and more than one out of two devices will have an IoT security attack. CEA and Bureau Veritas have enjoyed a successful partnership in delivering innovative solutions to the TIC marketplace for many years. Most recently, we have been working to automate product cybersecurity testing, currently a manual process often taking many weeks, and sometimes months. We firmly believe our solution will disrupt the cybersecurity testing marketplace. Not only are we reducing the testing time to a matter of days, we are also improving the security protection thanks to the focus on the safety critical wireless/wired interfaces, our digitalization approach and the massive reference database of cyber-attacks that CEA maintain and update on an ongoing basis."
