NUS-ISS SkillsFuture Series Seminar: Secured IoTs and Secured Cloud – Partners in ensuring a Secured Smart Nation

NUS-ISS SkillsFuture Series Seminar: Secured IoTs and Secured Cloud – Partners in ensuring a Secured Smart Nation

In the not too distant future, Artificial Intelligence (AI) will become an inseparable part of our daily living. Smart Electric Metering, Intelligent Personal Assistants, Autonomous Robots and Vehicles are just some of the key examples that we are beginning to embrace today. More AI-enabled systems will certainly be introduced in the areas of congestion management, vertical farming, medical diagnosis and treatment, etc to make Smarter Living a reality tomorrow.

However, such AI systems are highly dependent on good quality and filtered data to make the right decisions. These data need to be collected at the source and through a medium to reach the AI systems - this is where billions of IoTs devices will provide data and meaning via the cloud to enable AI systems.

Security at the source becomes an important consideration via the security triage of Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability (CIA) to ensure that good quality and filtered data. As such, secured IoTs and secured Cloud are partners in ensuring a secured Smart Nation.

How MTCS & COIR Could Impact You

Given the ubiquitous nature of cloud computing, any unavailability or security incident on the cloud could impact your business. That’s the reason for two guidelines to protect you online: MTCS (Multi-Tier Cloud Security), which is a Singapore Standard & COIR (Cloud Outage Incident Response), which is a Singapore TR (Technical Reference). These impact both CSPs (Cloud Service Providers) and CSCs (Cloud Service Consumers). What are these recommendations? Why should you bother? How can you use them?

9:45am Securing serverless system

Wondering what is serverless (or FAAS) and how it impacts security risk? The speaker will start with a brief of how serverless is being used, serverless architecture for IoT & AI, and give examples of serverless applications. He then explains the security impact of going serverless and ends with the top 10 serverless security risks and measures in mitigating them.
