Tim Mackey, principal security strategist, Synopsys

Managing risk for internet of things devices must start early in the design phase, says Tim Mackey of Synopsys, who offers insights on key risk mitigation steps, including building a threat model.

In a video interview at the recent Infosecurity Europe conference, Mackey discusses:

  • The various components of IoT security;
  • Preventing incidents such as the spread of the Mirai botnet;
  • The need to recognize that software security is different than other types of security.

Mackey is principal security strategist at Synopsys.
