Embedded World is currently the largest gathering of embedded technology professionals. Rommel will offer his insight on the role design planning and solution selection play when planning for optimal security risk mitigation.

While sharing results from a recent VDC survey of engineering leaders, Rommel will lend his expertise to assist embedded device engineers and solution providers in understanding the importance of analyzing their existing environment to improve security at all stages of the device lifecycle. Rommel's presentation, Feeling insecure? Best practices to build secure products with confidence, will provide a framework that engineers, product managers and executives can use as they sort out the risk and upside involved in designing secure intelligent devices.

“Security breaches have been occurring for many years. In today's increasingly interconnected world, there is a heightened awareness of the risk associated with connected devices.
