Free Webinar: Threat Modeling for Secure Embedded Software
LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., 2 September, 2011 – When it comes to security, embedded software presents a unique set of challenges for application development and engineering teams. To ensure that embedded software is secure, it is important to understand the threats that can make it susceptible to attack and then to establish appropriate counter measures.
In a free hour-long webinar scheduled for Tuesday, 13 September, 2011 at 11 a.m. PT/2 p.m. ET, Jason Taylor, CTO of Security Innovation, and Gwyn Fisher, CTO of Klocwork, will discuss how to make sure embedded software is secure.
Designed for embedded software engineers and security specialists, the session identifies the characteristics of embedded software that make it vulnerable to security threats, discusses the importance of threat modeling, and provides specific mitigation activities all embedded teams should employ.
