Embedded Executive: Stefan Skarin, CEO, IAR Systems

Security is clearly in the spotlight these days, and for good reason—hacks continue on a regular basis.


But the pendulum has shifted from “you need to make your system is hackproof” to “you need to minimize the damage when the inevitable hack occurs.” Is there truth to this statement? That’s the question I asked Stefan Skarin, CEO, IAR Systems, the company that also owns the Secure Thingz brand in this week’s Embedded Executives podcast.

Richard Nass’ key responsibilities include setting the direction for all aspects of OSM’s ECD portfolio, including digital, print, and live events. Previously, Nass was the Brand Director for Design News. Prior, he led the content team for UBM’s Medical Devices Group, and all custom properties and events. Nass has been in the engineering OEM industry for more than 30 years. In prior stints, he led the Content Team at EE Times, Embedded.com, and TechOnLine. Nass holds a BSEE degree from NJIT.
