According to IC Insights, 18 semiconductor wafer fabs were shut down in Europe between 2009 and 2018. Since 2020, Europe is facing a severe semiconductor shortage which is impacting our industries, specifically the automotive sector. We are now realizing that Europe is dependent from Asia and USA for semiconductor supply.
The "security by design" approach is gaining momentum. Despite this positive trend, we observe that the choice of a comprehensive security solution covering IoT device full life cycle is not enough taken into account.
Embedded systems and IoT systems are increasingly exposed to a wider range of new security threats, and this trend will accelerate. Unfortunately, in ecosystems where the supply chain is complex, selecting and implementing the right security could be challenging. Furthermore, it is frequent that managers making decisions on security levels are not the ones who will be held accountable for their choices.
