IoT / Embedded Systems

Understanding the Complexity of Vulnerabilities

Embedded Systems and IoT have great potential for organizations, but not without risk. The challenges lie in identifying where security controls are needed. Given the diversity of the devices, customized risk assessments are needed to identify vulnerabilities and best contain them. We will work with your team to develop a stringent commissioning process where the initial configuration settings of these devices can be tested, scanned to identify any gaps in security and plans for mitigating those risks are completed before the device is moved into a production environment. And, Penetration Testing is completed periodically once a device is manufactured to make sure any changes to the device are closely monitored and controlled so that any new vulnerabilities are identified and gaps are hardened.

Preventing Disruption and DoS Attacks

Good intelligence is at the heart of good decision making and Cylance Consulting will work with your organization to understand your product architecture, identify the areas of potential vulnerability and make specific design recommendations for current and future mitigations. IoT and Embedded Systems can be rife with security flaws, design bugs and opportunities for hackers to expose those weaknesses. We will unearth these vulnerabilities and deliver fix prescriptions and mitigating countermeasures to ensure the risk is minimized. Ensuring continuous availability of IoT-based devices is important to avoid operational failures and potential interruptions in service.

Responding to an Attack

For customers who suspect a past or present attack, Cylance Consulting provides Incident Containment for IoT and Embedded Systems to determine how the attack occurred, what systems were breached, what data may have been exposed and how to prevent such attacks from happening again utilizing our proprietary machine learning technology to look for evidence of the attack. We’ll do a complete analysis of the communications channels used to transmit data across device components to outside systems to identify weaknesses and potential areas of breach.
