In this episode, sponsored by PSA Certified, we talk with David Maidment, Director of Secure Devices Ecosystem within the Architecture & Technology Group at Arm, about the evolution of our digitally transformed world and how increasingly important it is to protect our devices from hackers.

With new hacks making headlines every week, consumers are understandably apprehensive. There's no denying that insecurity poses a risk of delaying the deployment of IoT, especially as increasing reports have an adverse effect on adoption rates.

Government concerns about the security threats of poorly designed connected devices drive investments in new standards, requirements and regulation. Products that don’t meet these requirements don’t go to market.

PSA Certified maps products to government-backed baseline requirements, standards and emerging law.

The PSA Certified founding members include renowned security experts who specialize in security evaluation. They created the PSA Certified program methodically using IoT threat models, security goals and industry best practices to provide free access to world-leading security expertise.

PSA Certified hides the underlying complexity of security from software providers, device makers and service providers through an easy-to-use, high-level software API. For the chip maker who designs-in a Root of Trust with security functions such as cryptography, secure storage and attestation, PSA Certified resources allow you to focus more on product differentiation.

PSA Certified helps you keep your development process in check and create an audit trail to showcase your efforts. It’s actively moving the industry from a verbal “Trust Me” to one that can rely on independent testing. Protect your invested development time and money.

Design security into your product from the start and avoid a costly hack.
