Embedded Executive: Your Data Is Not Safe, Panther Labs

We say all the time that any system can be hacked and this week’s Embedded Executives podcast guest is someone who can get into your system.

Ken Westin, Field CISO of Panther Labs, is who we'd call a white-hat hacker. He hacks for good reasons, sometimes to follow a bad hacker and return data, and sometimes to help close up holes in a system. Nonetheless, this is an interesting interview worth a listen. 


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.
