The French National Agency for the Security of Information Systems just announced that the number of ransomware attacks in France increased fourfold between 2019 and 2020. This is a dramatic increase and we all have in mind the recent attacks on hospitals and other communities in France.
One may wonder whether the embedded electronics industry, usually conscious of security issues, is really concerned by such ransomware attacks targeting large mass of sensitive and collective data?
The answer is even more obvious after it has been made public that a world-level electronics manufacturing services corporation (EMS) has been the object of an attack involving the Revil/Sodinokibi ransomware. This event, along with other occurrences, demonstrates that this type of threat is also a reality in our ecosystem.
Trusted Objects experts have an extensive risk culture, including the specific issues of code and IP protection during manufacturing. They have developed to-security to bring peace of mind to embedded software developers to protect their software IP all along the supply chain including during programming.
Have you taken the necessary measures to prevent such attacks?
