WHY YOUR COMPANY NEEDS TO CREATE A SECURITY POLICY BEFORE IMPLEMENTING A SECURITY PROGRAM

Security is a critical concern across a wide spectrum of industries. Ensuring security on embedded devices is a key element of an enterprise’s overall security strategy. In this white paper we’ll review research findings from a recent security study, interpret those findings, and make suggestions on how to implement a valuable security plan.

It is broadly understood that in today’s connected world, everyone’s data is at risk. In the embedded world, security goes well beyond data. If an embedded device is not secure, it cannot be safe, which means your entire system is not safe. We are not talking about server failures due to software hacking; we’re talking about specific device security. Attacks can come from a lot of areas, including active side-channel attacks, memory and bus attacks, cold boot attacks, and, of course, network attacks. Cybersecurity is a worldwide issue with every connected device being a potential attack vector, or entry point, for an attack.

Make no mistake, security is important.

Cyberattacks can disrupt businesses, compromise intellectual property, or wreak financial and reputational damage. The Internet of Things (IoT) opens up game-changing new opportunities from increased connectivity and the ability to better leverage data-driven insights, but it also ushers in unprecedented risks. With the proliferation of connected devices, the potential for new vulnerabilities is staggering. With the stakes higher than ever, it is ever more important to act now.
