    Key topics and learnings


    Signify security experts Fabio Vignoli and Barbara Oosterveld will offer insights on the topic of cybersecurity, and give you an opportunity to ask questions. How do we manage security at Signify? How do we make sure that security is performed according to best practices?


    Although it may sound kind of boring, governance is the answer:


    • Device security
      Signify manufactures lighting and IoT components. What actions do we take to make our devices secure? What are our best practices?
    • Business continuity
      Our devices are connected to the cloud on the back end. Signify is responsible for making sure our customers can continue working, think about our lighting systems deployed at a customer’s factory.
    • Shared responsibility
      Signify will do what we can as a manufacturer to implement the right security in our devices, but both the certified systems integrators (CSIs) who partner with us and our customers have much to do to install, operate, and manage an installation in a secure way.

    Learning objectives:


    • How do we manage security at Signify?
    • How do we handle security during development and operations?
    • What actions do we take during design, development, and testing?
    • What is our responsibility as a manufacturer?
