IoT Security: security issues facing connected embedded systems
Embedded systems are everywhere, from consumer electronics, security systems, payment terminals and networking equipment to automotive, medical and industrial control devices, permeating all aspects of everyday life. Their increasing complexity and connectivity, especially with the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT), has been accompanied by an explosion in threats against such systems, ranging from IoT botnets infecting routers and CCTV cameras to attacks on connected cars and critical infrastructure. It has also become increasingly clear that many embedded systems lag years, if not decades, behind in terms of security and are often vulnerable to issues that can be simultaneously trivial to exploit and hard to remediate. Expand your knowledge on this topic during the live webinar: IoT Security: security issues facing connected embedded systems.
Date: Friday 28 June 2019
Time: 11:00 AM - 12.00 PM CEST LIVE
Presenters: Jos Wetzels
In this webinar security expert Jos Wetzels will provide you with a big picture introduction to the security issues facing connected embedded systems, touch upon the relevant threat landscape and discuss common vulnerabilities as well as some high-level hardening strategies and the unique challenges faced by embedded systems security engineers.
Who should attend?
The webinar will be designed to provide a high level view of the topic, while at the same time zooming in on certain technical aspects. Therefore, it is fit for everyone from security managers and officers to technical security personnel.
