Trusted Computing Group Webcast to Address How to Close Security Gaps in the IoT

Trusted Computing Group (TCG) and members GlobalSign and Cisco will discuss and demonstrate key techniques for closing critical IoT security gaps in a number of applications and endpoints in a webcast September 20.

According to a media release, attendees will learn how to mitigate risks in securing trust credentials using public key infrastructure (PKI) and the international ISO standards-based Trusted Platform Module.

TCG experts also will look at the example of smart buildings, in which endpoints must be checked for integrity, allowed safely on a network and exchange data with the cloud - all securely and without the introduction of malware or other attacks. Attendees also will learn how these technologies can be applied to many endpoints.

The webcast will be held Tuesday, Sept. 20, 12 p.m. Eastern/9 a.m. Pacific. The webcast also can be replayed with registration. Register for the free event here:

    Papyrus Joins Forces with Designer Lela Rose

    Papyrus is looking to bring the “elegance and style” of fashion to its greeting cards via a new designer collaboration series.

    According to a release, the collaboration marks the first time a fashion design house and greeting card brand have joined forces to develop a custom greeting card collection.

    Papyrus said it is partnering with American fashion designer Lela Rose to introduce the series. Rose will feature her "sophisticated yet modern style" in the debut card and gift collection, slated to launch during New York Fashion Week. The collection will be available in New York City Papyrus stores and select retailers in September, with availability expanding to all Papyrus locations and retailers in October.

    "The fashion designer collaboration series is a celebration of the commitment Papyrus has to the arts, including a focus on the fashion industry, quality craftsmanship and trend-forward design," said Christy Kaprosy, President of Papyrus-Recycled Greetings. "We are delighted to have Lela Rose's elegant line lead the first Papyrus fashion designer collaboration program, and we are excited to bring more fashion designers to our loyal customers in the future."

    The company noted the collection, which draws inspiration from some of Rose's recent runway designs, consists of 16 cards and five gift accessories, including gift bags, gift tissue, roll wrap and a gift tag set. It also will be available online at papyrusonline.com

    "I'm thrilled to be the first designer to collaborate with Papyrus on their exclusive new fashion series," said Lela Rose. "This is a unique way to showcase our designs, silhouettes and prints, and extend the brand into a new category."
