The Amphion Forum exists because all devices – including consumer electronics, medical equipment, automotive systems; manufacturing, power generation, and refining machinery; infrastructure equipment like water treatment facilities, oil pipelines management and electrical power systems; as well as facilities controls like building security, airport traffic control and military vessel control systems – all are subject to a fast-growing collection of threats. But much of what we’ve learned about security on PC-based systems and networks can’t be applied to the device ecosystem, and while Android attacks get a lot of press, it’s about a lot more than just smartphone. It’s about virtually any non-PC networked object— a very large population of devices that outnumbers workstations on the Internet by at least five to one -- a population that is expected to exceed 17 billion devices sometime this year.

About the Amphion Forum

The Amphion Forum is a non-profit consortium of organizations seeking to advance the security of the Internet of Things. The Forum brings together thought-leaders from academia, business, government and technology to discuss the threats and opportunities presented by the unprecedented proliferation of connected devices: the connected non-PC device market that’s valued at close to one trillion dollars, and growing several times as fast as the PC market. At each Amphion Forum gathering, more than 300 leaders from every conceivable device discipline engage in interactive workshops and sessions to set priorities to explore the most compelling ideas for realizing the potential of the “Internet of Things.”
