Sequitur Labs Joins AI Day to Address IoT Cybersecurity

SEATTLE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sequitur Labs announced today its CEO Phil Attfield will present on Embedded AI Systems and Software at Embedded Computing Design’s online event AI Day, September 9, 2021. AI Day features education and thought leadership on compelling AI-related products and technologies for the engineering and design community.

IoT devices are forecast to triple to more than 75 billion units over the next few years, and experts expect a corresponding increase in issues and vulnerabilities that cybercriminals can exploit. User privacy, protecting edge device IP, software updates, cryptography, key management, and safeguarding data on device storage, in the cloud, and in transit are crucial goals for IoT developers.

“As semiconductors improve, AI processing will increasingly take place at the edge, instead of the data center, which brings new concerns about data security as well as cybercrime,” said Attfield. “IoT and other edge devices have complex cybersecurity requirements and making decisions about device design isn’t limited to mere processors, sensors, and power management.”

Attfield has more than 20 years of experience in computing, networking, security and systems modeling for large enterprises and small entrepreneurial firms including Nortel Networks, Signal 9 Solutions (acquired by McAfee), and The Boeing Company.

The one-day virtual event begins at 11 a.m. Eastern. To register visit;F:APIUTILS!51004&PageID=51388567-0834-4075-A5D4-8AA346A274B5&AffiliateData=osmdb

Sequitur Labs’ EmSPARK Security Suite was designed to address solutions in industries where embedded security is paramount, in particular, protection of AI models at the edge. Supporting security functions for encryption, storage, data transmission and key/certificate management are delivered by EmSPARK and housed in a microprocessor’s secure memory partition. IoT hardware manufacturers use EmSPARK to easily implement device-level security by addressing technical, IP, supply chain and business process challenges. Developers can easily build applications that use secure resources without having to become experts in cryptography and complex chip-level security technologies.
