Managing risk for internet of things devices must start early in the design phase, says Tim Mackey of Synopsys, who offers insights on key risk mitigation steps, including building a threat model.
In a video interview at the recent Infosecurity Europe conference, Mackey discusses:
- The various components of IoT security;
- Preventing incidents such as the spread of the Mirai botnet;
- The need to recognize that software security is different than other types of security.
