Data Security: Think Like a Hacker

If you want to build secure embedded systems, you have to look at them the way a hacker does. This means integrating security in every dimension of product and system development. Join this webinar to learn how and why systems get hacked, how to build security into designs, and more.

Duration: 1 hour

When your job is to create and build embedded systems and products, intentionally breaking your creations seems wrong. But not to a hacker. They do not see your systems and products as elegant designs that solve problems. Hackers see your product as a means to an end. When we look back over the past 20 years of cybersecurity and data breaches, almost every incident has some type of exploitation of a vulnerability--perhaps a poorly designed API or a third-party component with outdated code. This is what cybercriminals, malware writers, and state-sponsored hackers obsess over: how to break what you build. If you want to build more secure, more resilient embedded systems and products, you have to look at them the way a hacker does. This means identifying potential vulnerabilities, prioritizing security as a design requirement, and then integrating security into every dimension of system and product development. In partnership with Mouser Electronics, Anitian security experts will discuss how you can start looking at your embedded system designs and architecture the same way a hacker does. Attendees will learn how to improve development practices to integrate security at every stage.

Key Takeaways

  • Understand how systems get hacked
  • Learn ten areas of embedded systems and products that hackers focus on
  • Discover how to add security to the product development process
