Barr Group’s 2017 Embedded Systems Safety & Security Survey



I can observe into Barr Group’s 2017 Embedded Systems Safety & Security Survey, the lack of due diligence during the design process; extremely concerning, as it puts not only the individual IoT device at risk of tampering, but also jeopardizes the integrity of the entire network.
In effect, Barr Group’s 2017 Embedded Systems Safety & Security Survey has revealed the following statistics:
  • 9 percent of IoT designers don’t keep their source code in a version control system
  • 56 percent don’t perform regular source code reviews for bugs and security holes
  • 60 percent don’t use a static analysis tool to check the source code
  • 25 percent don’t have a bug database or other system to track known issues
  • 37 percent don’t utilize a written coding standard, and others don’t enforce one consistently
Any device that is connected to the Internet is vulnerable to tampering unless properly designed for maximum security.
