In our rush to connect everything together, secure connectivity and information handling is frequently an afterthought, if ever even a thought at all.
Is it possible to instill sound SDL (security development lifecycle) practices into the initial build of these new devices? Should these devices be regulated like medical devices are?
An alternative to waiting for built-in security to occur is to bolt it on after it is built and sometimes even after it has been deployed. But why wait? And what are we waiting for? A breach?
Join us as we explore some best practices to secure IoT systems from the beginning, so they don't have to be redesigned later.
