IoT Safety Architecture & Risk Toolkit updated 2/24/20

A plethora of devices has enhanced many aspects of our lives.

Left unchecked, we risk the threat of IoT hazardization, the risk of physical and life-safety damages.  In response, the Agelight Advisory Group working with stakeholders in the public and private sectors, developed the IoT Safety Design Architecture and Risk Toolkit (IoTSA).  Built on the foundation of seven guiding tenets, the IoTSA harmonizes dozens of efforts focusing on forty-five principles, which provide prescriptive guidance to increase the trustworthiness of connected devices.
