With Facebook in the spotlight for their controversial use of user data, we have become acutely aware of how much privacy we have given up. It often feels like we are on the cusp of losing our personal and financial information to some unknown hacker, our information waiting to be sold on the black market without our knowledge. The internet connects us to the world but also makes it easier for the world to access our lives.

It is a tradeoff that we accept, even if we are unsure of the consequences.


From smartphones to smart homes, the Internet of Things has been steadily making its presence known in our daily lives. Fitness trackers, drones, Alexa’s and smartwatches – luxury goods back when they were first released - have become more affordable and readily available to the average consumer.

The wide use of IoT applications also prompts questions about security in IoT. With all the connectivity that occurs between so many different devices, those looking to do harm through the network have more options than ever before.

On May 9th, Lars Lydersen, senior director of product security at Silicon Labs, will be presenting a webinar on “Why the IoT Needs Upgradable Security.” A fascinating and highly relevant topic, Lydersen will discuss how external threats to security have evolved and the kinds of challenges that engineers face when considering security in their IoT design.

Why the IoT Needs Upgradable Security
LIVE WEBINAR

In this webinar, Lars Lydersen, senior director of product security at Silicon Labs, delves into the historical data of how adversary capability has evolved, and discusses how these can be extrapolated into the future. This understanding gives a necessary background to evaluate what security functionality is necessary in an IoT design. Even with advanced security functionality, there will always be unknown unknowns, and it will be necessary to secure against attacks and adversaries of the future.

Attend this webinar to learn:

  • the typical properties of an attack that can be thwarted via updates
  • why enabling software updates is needed
  • the consequences for IoT designs
