A New Approach to IoT Safety, Risk, and Vulnerability Analysis

Add to calendar
Thursday, April 27, 2017 - 2:00pm to 2:45pm

The ugly truth is that the interconnection of devices with IoT systems can lead to failures which result in physical injury, unacceptable risk, or cybersecurity vulnerabilities. Preventing such accidents requires identifying hazards, risks, and security vulnerabilities during development. Traditional hazard analysis techniques—failure modes and effects analysis, fault tree analysis, and root cause analysis—were developed for simple hardware controllers and are based on single-point failures. However, software fails differently than hardware. Most accidents, system failures, and many cyber...

Building and Testing Secure Mobile Apps

Add to calendar
Friday, April 28, 2017 - 11:00am to 11:45am

Mobile application development is now a mission-critical component of IT organizations and a big part of the software industry’s landscape. Due to the security threats associated with mobile devices, it is critical we build our apps—from the ground up—to be secure and trustworthy. However, many application developers and testers do not understand how to build and test secure mobile applications. Alan Crouch discusses the risks associated with mobile platforms/applications and describes proven practices for ensuring the safety of your mobile applications. Alan delves into the unique nuances...
