How do you make an inanimate object “smart”? You put a chip in it! And then you connect it to the global internet! These chips run what is typically called an embedded operating system – a Windows, unix or Linux variant, or something custom made. Because these chips are embedded in power grid equipment, medical equipment, appliances or even people, updates and patches are problematic. The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing at a rate 10-times that of standard computers. A typical hospital/clinic system may have 4-5 times as many smart connected medical devices as computers. The Dreaded Embedded refers to the proliferation of vulnerabilities associated with these devices. What are the security and privacy concerns of these devices? What about FDA and other regulatory compliance? And how do we deal with these devices as part of an information security program?
