In this episode of Security Nation, Jen and Tod chat with David Rogers, CEO at Copper Horse Ltd., about the Product Security and Telecommunications Infrastructure (PSTI) bill, a new piece of IoT security legislation in the UK. He runs through the new regulations that the bill includes for manufacturers of connected smart devices – including everything from home products to health devices – and details all the many steps it takes to get legislation like this signed into law.
Stick around for our Rapid Rundown, where Tod and Jen talk about the latest edition of Rapid7’s Vulnerability Intelligence Report, which covers all the need-to-know vulnerabilities from 2021, a year that began with SolarWinds and ended with Log4j (i.e. a VERY busy year for this sort of thing).
David is a mobile phone and IoT security specialist who runs Copper Horse Ltd, a software and security company based in Windsor, UK. His company is currently focusing on product security for the Internet of Things, as well as future automotive cybersecurity.
David chairs the Fraud and Security Group at the GSMA and sits on the Executive Board of the Internet of Things Security Foundation. He authored the UK’s Code of Practice for Consumer IoT Security, in collaboration with UK government and industry colleagues, and is a member of the UK’s Telecoms Supply Chain Diversification Advisory Council.
He has worked in the mobile industry for over 20 years in security and engineering roles. Prior to this, he worked in the semiconductor industry.
