Most executives are not aware of cyber risks that threaten their businesses. They need to manage cyber security risks in the same thoughtful and intelligent way as they manage other aspects of their business.  Fortunately, they don’t need to be a technology expert to improve their cyber risk management skills. This workshop provides practical and to-the-point information for busy executives and small business owners. 

What you will learn:

• Real issues with examples that are easy to understand
• Big picture events driving cyber-crimes today and the top cyber risks that affect executives and their businesses
• Examples of common cyber-attacks, including actual impacts to real businesses
• Using germ theory to explain how good “security hygiene” can help executives and their businesses combat security threats and introduce the top actions executives can take to avoid threats such as phishing, identity theft, hacking, and financial fraud
• Affordable tools that can help owners mitigate the most common cyber risks

Fierce Cyber Attacks Demand Enhanced IoT Security. But how to Best Prepare?

With all the ongoing ransomware and cyber-attacks, connected IoT devices need an extra layer of security. New legislation in both Europe and the US are mandating such strengthened security. But what tools are available for embedded IoT engineers to meet these new requirements?

To learn more about providing enhanced protection of connected devices, Design News reached out to Haydn Povey, CEO of Secure Thingz and General Manager for the division Embedded Security Solutions at IAR Systems. What follows is a portion of that discussion.

“The requirements of new legislation for security in IoT devices are impacting us now. With the advent of EN 303 645 and the US IoT, Cyber Security Act signed into law last year, there is now mounting pressure on the Consumer IoT market to meet security standards. However, this is not just limited to Consumer IoT, with regulationsevolving quickly in other markets, such as the IEC 62443 requirement for Industrial IoT (Industry 4.0) and similar requirements in medical and automotive.” . . . full story here
