With the support of Swiss Re and AXA Technology Services, the invitation-only multidisciplinary workshop, held on 15 – 16 November 2016 at the Swiss Re Centre for Global Dialogue in Rüschlikon, Switzerland, brought together 30 experts (from research, technology, industry, regulation, insurance and otheWordcloudr stakeholder groups) in an open, facilitated roundtable discussion under Chatham House Rule.

The workshop discussed expert recommendations for creating trust in cyber security of the IoT and to foster policy and societal buy-in with appropriate technological and risk management options, creating appropriate governance context conditions through improved understanding of the risks and opportunities.
