Embedded devices are increasingly connected to network resources for additional functionality with the ultimate goal of greater mission capability. Recently, security of connected devices is being scrutinized with highly publicized vulnerabilities of various consumer devices. While several domains are starting to publish new guidelines for cybersecurity there is not a standardized risk assessment framework for organizations to utilize. Furthermore, many domains have not published any cybersecurity guidelines at all. This webinar will talk about some of the industry guidelines that exist, how they are related, which ones need to be created, and how an assessment framework can be created that is standards based for consistent risk assessment results.
