We attended European Cyber Week 2022 in Rennes, France, 15 -17 November to meet delegates from the public and private sectors of the cybersecurity and cyber defence industry to discuss the importance of embedded security. The event was attended by over 4,800 visitors.
The operating systems and much of the hardware architecture of embedded systems used today was specified years ago. As a result, devices can be easily hacked, and such attacks could have critical, real-world consequences. And as the world becomes increasingly connected, the security threat increases exponentially, underpinning the need for robust embedded security.
