The 1-Hour Security Bootcamp

How do you keep your company from being front page news for the wrong reasons? You can start by implementing a rigorous security solution on your embedded devices. The most common reason developers give for not using security is that they perceive it to be too hard, so they will just sit back until they are forced to imbue their devices with security by either their customers or the government... or until they get hacked and shamed. Good security is hard, but with the right tools, it doesn't have to be that way. In this session, we're going to take a holistic approach to implementing security by examining the Chain of Trust, hardware requirements, and working in a secure workflow to minimize the attack surface a hacker can use to attack your system. We're going to show you how easy it can be to enable a high degree of security in just a few easy steps.
