Natick, MA (PRWEB) October 23, 2012
VDC Research Group, Inc. (VDC), a leading market intelligence firm that provides engineering leaders with domain-specific insights to help guide their product development strategies, announced the first in a series of Webcasts designed to help engineers and product managers navigate the rapidly evolving security threat landscape for embedded devices.
A recent New York Times article dated October 11, 2012, “Panetta Warns of Dire Threats of Cyberattack on U.S.,” underscores the importance of building security into the embedded system design process. The proliferation of the Cloud, Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication, and other intelligent device trends creates a barrage of design challenges as well as new vectors for attack. With device security an area of rapidly increasing importance but widely varying expertise, embedded system engineers can benefit greatly from understanding the latest trends in secure device development.
Presented by Christopher Rommel, VDC’s Vice President of Embedded Software and Hardware Research, attendees will learn best practices that address security at each step in the product development cycle and the latest thinking about how to build-in security within each layer of their solution stack. Mr. Rommel will also provide new insights into which security capabilities (such as lockdown, encryption, and device authentication) engineers and product managers should prioritize in their next design and the steps they need to take to help their company become a security-centric organization.
