Leti Innovation Day to explore new security challenges and responses for a safe connected world

Leti, an institute of CEA Tech, is hosting a one-day conference covering “System Reliability & Security in a Connected World” in Lyon, France, on June 23.

Held at the Lyon Congress Centre, this Leti Innovation Day event will explore novel, effective ways to ensure security in the emerging new phase of the digital revolution launched by the Internet of Things.

According to Alain Merle, Leti’s strategic marketing manager for security, this rapidly changing digital environment requires new paradigms for reliability, privacy and security in order to ensure a safe ecosystem for both industrials and consumers. Hacking, data and identity theft, all digital threats to the real world, immediately follow the introduction or expansion of new applications of digital technology. The frontier between physical and digital security has vanished, he said.

“Companies must start implementing IoT security solutions at the start of the production cycle, and every new industrial project should be ruled not only by cost control, performance enhancement and energy savings, but also by security control,” added Lionel Rudant, Leti’s strategic marketing manager for IoT.

Presenters include Leti experts and industry leaders whose companies are collaborating with Leti on new security and reliability solutions for the next phase of the digital revolution. The lineup includes executives from Bureau Veritas, GLOBALFOUNDRIES, Intel, Mentor Graphics, Oberthur Technologies, Safran and STMicroelectronics, who will share their insights on topics such as enabling a connected world, assessing security and reliability, anticipating security challenges and how advanced technologies can strengthen security.
