This week, from 28 to 30 November, we are hosting the inaugural multistakeholder meeting on enhancing security of the Internet of Things (IoT) in Senegal. This meeting is the joint initiative of the Ministry of Posts, Communications, Telecommunications and Digital Economy (MCTPEN), Internet Society, and the Regulatory Authority for Telecommunications and Posts (ARTP).
This is the first session in a 18-month long process that has a goal to develop recommendations for a policies to secure IoT in Senegal. Events throughout the year will serve as an opportunity to begin planning and implementing a bottom-up, organic process to discuss potential security challenges in Senegal’s national IoT ecosystem.
This meeting is coordinated in partnership with the Senegal ISOC Chapter and it aims to instigate dialogue on IoT preparedness and priorities in Senegal. It will be followed by the workshop on the multistakeholder model from 30 November to 1 December 2018.
