Cyber security dictates stability of societies
TÜV Rheinland, an international provider of testing, inspection and certification services, has released its seventh annual report on cyber security trends for 2020. The report is a collaboration between many of TÜV Rheinland‘s leading cyber security experts globally, and discusses seven key cyber security trends which will be important to be aware of in 2020.
When should you to secure your embedded systems?
Earlier this spring, a report was published describing how hackers used a network-connected, but unsecured, fish-tank thermometer in a casino lobby to break into the network and steal data. The incident raises yet another spotlight on how vulnerable embedded systems can be without proper protection. By Scott Jones, Managing Director, and Nathan Sharp, Sr. Business Manager, Embedded Security

How are cyber attackers targeting the healthcare sector?
Healthcare data has long been one of the favourite targets for cyber attackers. A set of medical records can provide a wealth of data for criminals to conduct fraud or launch more effective targeted attacks. By Matt Walmsley, Director EMEA at Vectra
Securing systems: Four top tips for design engineers
Scott Best, Technical Director of Anti-Counterfeiting Products, Rambus, explains the role of cryptographic ICs. As system counterfeiting attacks continue to send shockwaves across industries, design engineers are evaluating how best to deploy cryptographic authentication integrated circuits (ICs) to secure systems. While there is no shortage of options available, in reality many of these solutions provide very poor levels of additional secur...
Future impacts of AI on cyber crime
Dave Palmer, Director of Technology at Darktrace, an AI company that specialises in products and systems that can automatically recognise the signs of a cyber attack and interrupt them before a crisis occurs, recently hosted a session at the IoT Expo event in London, where he addressed some of the sensational headlines around how AI is going to supercharge cyber crime.

Facing the cyber security challenge
The cyber security landscape is changing and there are a number of challenges emerging for industry and businesses, particularly from an IoT perspective. Speaking at the Drives & Controls show in Birmingham, Andrew Johnston, a cyber security specialist with Cisco, highlighted the concerns.
Design security into your code. Don’t just hope for the best
If someone constructed a suspension bridge by guessing the steel cabling sizes required and then loading the deck to see whether it collapsed, you would be unlikely to suggest that he was a great civil engineer. And if a lift manufacturer sized their motors by trying them to see whether they caught fire, you wouldn’t expect their electrical engineers to win many awards.
