Embedded Executive: Phil Attfield, CEO, Sequitur Labs

Just when you thought you had plugged all the holes, more vulnerability points pop up.


Actually, in the case of the consumer IoT, they were there all along, just far less publicized. In the big scheme of things, having an individual get hacked is a big deal, but usually just for that one person. However, if you hack multiple people, you could be getting to a point where it’s a big deal for more than one individual. Phil Attfield, the CEO of Sequitur Labs, has a pretty handle on this and understands how and why every node needs to be secured, and that’s what we discussed 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.
