Webcast highlights the risks faced by consumers in the new era of connected devices

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 second in a series of Webcasts designed to help engineers and product managers understand the nature of embedded device security risks and the impact that these threats will have on consumers.

Today, residential alarm systems, televisions, cars and utility meters are among the 10 billion embedded devices that are increasingly connected to the Internet. Although device security is an area of rapidly increasing importance, decisions about security are being made by OEMs without a deep understanding of growing consumer attitudes and preferences regarding the security of next-generation devices.

In this live webcast, presented by Christopher Rommel, VDC’s Vice President of Embedded Software and Hardware Research, attendees will learn about the level and awareness consumers have regarding the security risk posed by connected devices, the degree to which consumers use security as a selection criteria and how likely consumers will pay a premium to have additional security as a product feature.

Mr. Rommel will also provide insights into how leading consumer device manufacturers are thinking about the issue of security and what can be learned about these approaches.
