Ensuring Security in the Age of the Connected Device

By Ken Briodagh February 08, 2018

Industrial systems across all industries are connecting devices and components that have historically not been connected. Adding connectivity creates enormous opportunities for innovation, from telematics and predictive maintenance to more intelligent operations.

With that being said, adding connectivity also adds exposure to network based attacks. These industrial systems share common connection requirements of reliability, scalability, and now, security. Do you know how your software components are connected? Do your connectivity protocols meet your reliability, scalability, and security requirements?

To examine these issues and find some answers, Twin Oaks Computing and IoT Evolution are hosting a webinar entitled “Ensuring Security in the Age of the Connected Device” on Tuesday, March 27 at 2 p.m. Eastern/11 a.m. Pacific.

The presentation will take an in-depth look at Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications using the Data Distribution Service (DDS) standardized connectivity protocol from the Object Management Group (OMG), with a focus on secure data communications. DDS is a proven, mature protocol, with over 10 years of implementation history across military, industrial, medical, power, automotive, and IIoT industries. The DDS Security specification includes state-of-the art technologies for end-to-end secure data communications.

What attendees will learn:
Methods for securing connected devices
Benefits and Risks associated with connected systems
Benefits of using standardized middleware to connect systems
Features of the Data Distribution Service DDS standards

Who should attend:
Solutions Architects developing connected industrial devices and systems
Software and Systems Engineers building sophisticated distributed systems
Device manufacturers concerned with keeping connected devices secure

Presenter:
Nina Tucker
Co-founder and VP of Technology Twin Oaks Computing
Co-chair Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) Distributed Data
Interoperability & Management (DDIM) Task Group
