IIoT Leaders Discuss Strategic Approaches to the DDS Security Specification and Characterization Techniques for Cybersecurity

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 11, 2016) - Real-Time Innovations (RTI), the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) connectivity platform company, today announced it is hosting two complimentary, security-focused webinars, "Data Distribution Service Security and the Industrial Internet of Things" and "Cybersecurity Spotlight: Looking under the Hood at Data Breaches and Hardening Techniques."

The first webinar, "Data Distribution Service Security and the Industrial Internet of Things," will be presented on Jan. 13 and will discuss the Data Distribution Service (DDS) standard's rapid adoption as the connectivity platform for the critical infrastructure and the Industrial Internet of Things, with deployments ranging from SCADA systems to large-scale medical, energy and defense systems. Hamed Soroush, Research Security Engineer at RTI, will lead the webinar and offer insight on the most recent work on the security specification for the DDS standard, its rationale, and architectural design. Related research and use cases in Industrial Internet of Things, including medical and energy sectors, will also be discussed.

The following week, RTI will join ThingWorx, an IoT platform provider for cloud, business logic and big data, to present, "Cybersecurity Spotlight: Looking under the Hood at Data Breaches and Hardening Techniques," on Jan. 19. Networked embedded systems and IoT alike, enable services that change the way the world lives, learns, works, and plays. However, purpose-built attacks and data breaches on these environments are becoming commonplace. Cybersecurity experts will characterize common data breach and attack techniques and discuss tools, processes, and approaches to close vulnerabilities and harden the software environments.
