Copper Horse’s CEO, David Rogers was the author of the UK’s Code of Practice for Security in Consumer IoT and services as part of its report on Secure by Design, in collaboration with DCMS, the NCSC,… Continue reading

Why you and your staff need to skill up on IoT security

David Rogers with training delegates on the Introduction to IoT Security course

There have been a lot of problems with IoT from the outset. A marketing catch-all term, the truth about IoT is that many of these devices have been connected for years and it’s only now that attention is being paid to them by both security researchers and the bad guys. There are whole set of new devices coming to market which incredibly harbour some of the same issues as very old devices, making them very dangerous from a security perspective. Attack techniques have moved on significantly meaning that… Continue reading

IoT Security Foundation partners with Copper Horse for IoT Security Training

The Internet of $1600 Mousetraps…


Has it really got this bad? We were a bit surprised as many were to see the “connected mouse trap” retailing at $1600 the other day.

The system requires a hub which needs to be connected to somebody’s network – I guess either the company or mobile network and at the end of the day somebody will physically have to go… Continue reading

How do you standardise the Internet of Tigers?


Copper Horse CEO, David Rogers discusses some of the challenges for development of the Internet of Things and how to enable participation in standardisation from all across the world. 


A couple of months ago, I was present at a meeting in Geneva where the “Internet of Tigers” was discussed. The topic was raised by an African country – tigers are of course resident in Asia, although some do live on reserves in Africa, such as at Tiger Canyons in the Karoo, South Africa. Tracking of endangered species is a critical need for the world and a number… Continue reading
