The perfect storm: How hardware security is getting weaker as the industry changes its cybersecurity models
On one hand, we have cybersecurity solutions that are not keeping pace with today’s hackers. In spite of more resources being devoted to cybersecurity, cyber compromises are at an all-time high, with even less experienced hackers now gaining access. At the same time, hardware designers are changing their industry standards and direction. This change enables hackers anytime access to hardware – even when it is powered off. The result of this combination is a perfect cyber storm, ready for disaster.
