Distributor Avnet Silica has been approved as a full member of ECSO – the European Cyber Security Organisation (www.ecs-org.eu). Joining the organisation, Avnet Silica aims to develop a cyber security ecosystem that supports the protection of the European digital single market and the advancement of European digital autonomy.

Membership of the organisation will provide the distributor with access to the latest activities within the fields of security standardisation and legislation. In addition, Avnet Silica will be able to convey issues or key concerns from customers – including small and medium enterprises – thereby ensuring that their needs are heard within ECSO.
The fast growth of IoT applications and Industry 4.0 has meant that more and more machines and devices are becoming connected to the internet, which in turn has led to the increasing need for security across a whole host of embedded application markets – from the protection of intellectual property to the confidentiality, integrity and availability of user data.

Avnet Silica has already begun its work as a member of one of the organisation’s working groups – Working Group 1 (WG1), regarding standardisation, certification, labelling and supply chain management. This working group also comprises a number of sub-working-groups (SWGs) covering various fields, including the certification and evaluation of a wide range of devices from simple secure ICs through to complex end-systems, while focusing primarily on the manufacturing and the supply chain for these cyber-secure products.
