Organizations are divided. Some will be able to lean into mitigations against catastrophic and cascading failures. Others will not. In this discussion, we will explore the risk tradeoffs in firmware security. This includes risks inherent in devices, supply chain, physical access, and malicious software. We will also explore various mitigation strategies throughout the lifecycle, which separate those leaning in from those that don’t.

Paul Asadoorian – Founder at Security Weekly
Paul Asadoorian is the founder of Security Weekly, which was acquired by CyberRisk Alliance.

As Product Evangelist for Tenable Network Security, Paul built a library of materials on the topic of vulnerability management. When not hacking together embedded systems (or just plain hacking them) or coding silly projects in Python, Paul can be found researching his next set of headphones.
