IoT Security Foundation’s Champion Award


IoT Security Foundation’s Champion Award

The IoT Security Foundation would like to identify and celebrate organisations which demonstrate good IoT security stewardship as part of the IoTSF’s mission to raise security standards and drive best practice adoption.

Applicants will submit a concise application form which will provide enough information for judges to assess their suitability and claims. It will be important to support statements with simple-to-verify evidence to enable an efficient judging process.

Within the application form we will invite applicants to submit evidence of security stewardship in one of more of the following areas:

  • Product or Service Design
  • Internal Organisational Processes (for example, senior management responsibilities, risk assessment, design and maintenance processes etc.)
  • Third party testing evidence
  • External Statements (for example having a public vulnerability disclosure contact point)
  • Standards
  • Influence on products procured or retailed
  • Influence on the supply chain
  • Adoption of Best Practices such as those provided by IoTSF
  • Applicants are further encouraged to identify aspects of security stewardship not covered in the above list.

Who can apply?

The award is open to organisations that develop IoT products for the market OR act as a retailer or distributor OR deploy/use IoT to enjoy a business benefit such as productivity/efficiency gains or enabling an innovative service.

Applicants can be of any size organisation. The judges will make their decision based on the relative commitment made by the applicant – this is about demonstrating the importance of security to an organisation and/or its customers. As such, the judges will be looking for evidence of “walking the walk”.

Applicants can be from any sector and any part of the world.

Applicants do not have to be IoTSF members to apply for the award.

Award Benefits

The winner of the award will receive reputational and profile raising benefits. Tangible elements include: a physical award, a certificate, a press release and digital assets which can each be used for marketing purposes.

The IoT Security Foundation is the global champion for IoT security; as such this award is both prestigious and unique.

Online Application Form

The intent of the application process is to acquire sufficient evidence without being burdensome or overly bureaucratic to both applicants and judges. Award candidates are therefore encouraged to provide clear and concise information that is distinctly relevant to the award so that judges are not placed in a position of subjective interpretation.

Where you have worked as part of a team be sure to make it clear in the application how your achievements have been made – judges will not be able to make decisions on inconclusive evidence and will naturally frown upon information interpreted as misleading – therefore, if you worked as part of a team be explicit about what you have done and what was contributed by the team.

All accompanying information should be accurate at the time the application is submitted and should be unlikely to change adversely in a negative capacity in relation to the award before the end of the calendar year.

By submitting an application you confirm that you meet the eligibility criteria set out above.
