The Internet of Things enables more connectivity and higher levels of automated intelligence in devices, providing increased convenience, efficiency, and reliability for systems across many different markets from factory controls to medical equipment to home and building automation. This trend also provides more opportunities for attacks to networks and so increases the security risks that systems have. When every connected device becomes a possible entry point into the network, system-level security must be considered at the device-level as well. However, devices on the system may have different features and capabilities and so determining the correct security for a specific device can be a challenge. This webinar will review the threats, design methodology, and solution options that can be used to solve this problem.

Attendees will learn:

  • Types of security threats to IoT systems
  • Design methodology used to counter threats
  • Solutions available for securing connected devices

Who should attend:
Design engineers, design manager, and product marketing managers for IoT devices and systems.
