Don’t put up with industrial fake news! Ensuring the trustworthiness of data.

“Fake news has become a major problem, influencing elections, affecting major political events and the credibility of every piece of content on social media, fake news or not. And ‘industrial fake news’ in turn is indeed a big problem for businesses”, says Patrick Lamplmair, CEO of the European DeepTech-startup Tributech, data trust expert and guest on our new #MakeIoTwork podcast episode. Find out why they are such a big risk, what could happen if mission-critical decisions are made based on manipulated data, and how companies can protect themselves.


The importance of data trust – and the question: how to ensure data trust?

In its “2021 Data Health Survey”, Talend determined that 60% of business executives don’t always trust their company’s data, 95% of respondents also said they believe there should be cross-industry standard metrics to assess enterprise data quality. (Talend, 2021). Patrick Lamplmair also confirms this: “While companies understand the importance of protecting their data, we consistently see that they struggle to find answers to the question of how to ensure that their data is not corrupted or tampered with between data sources and their respective data consumers, whether internally or when sharing data with customers, suppliers and partners.”


The good news: Companies no longer have to blindly trust their data

One solution to implement to existing devices is the Tributech Sensor Security Module, a modular IoT device with extension modules to select connectivity and sensors or interfaces. It allows the highest possible customization while minimizing the implementation effort required to integrate new sensors or protocols for embedded systems applications. It combines high-end hardware security and blockchain technology to deliver verifiable and trustworthy data - even when used across organizations. Infineon's OPTIGA™ Trust M is used to create cryptographic fingerprints of sensor data that are stored in a tamper-proof blockchain layer.

As the Sensor Security Module is designed for prototypes and retrofits, the Tributech OEM Module is positioned between off-the-shelf products and do-it-yourself platforms or technologies. It is packaged to a system-on-module (SoM) solution which provides all required core functionalities within a single interface, handling telemetry data, configurations, updates, provisioning and security.
