Inherent to connected products is their ability to work with other connected products, providing increased functionality to the user. But as more products are connected within the ecosystem along with adding remote functionality, the risk to leaving your IoT product vulnerable to cyber-attacks is compounded.

It is incumbent on all manufacturers of IoT products to ensure they are not the weakest link in the ecosystem; allowing unsecured entries to breach into other connected products in the system. Hackers may not want the data your product collects, but they may desperately want the data that your product is connected to.

Additionally, just because you can add functionality to a product that can be implemented remotely, should you? Exploring the security risks upfront during product design and development is imperative.

In this webinar, we will discuss:

  • Making the connection between Interoperability, Functionality, and Security
  • Understanding security risks and how to minimize without compromising product design
  • Importance of conducting vulnerability assessments
  • Understanding hackers’ objectives and how it impacts your product’s risk
  • The need for having a plan in place for monitoring and take counteraction if a breach is detected
