The Internet of Insecure Things

Results from Barr Group’s 2018 Embedded Systems Safety & Security Survey reveal startling news on the state of security for Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Based on responses from more than 1,700 qualified embedded systems engineers from around the world, it has been determined that an alarming number of engineers continue to neglect implementing some of the most fundamental industry-recommended design practices known to raise security levels of embedded systems. Further exacerbating the problem, of the embedded systems developers working on internet-connected or IoT projects, 22 percent do not list security as a product requirement for their current project.

“Current projects are utilizing more CPUs, are more complex and are inherently more difficult to secure,” said Barr Group CTO Michael Barr. “Prioritizing security in every internet-connected embedded device is essential to maintaining the integrity of the IoT.”
