wiredmikey (1824622) writes "A recent survey which included responses from 800 engineers and developers that work on embedded devices, has found that 24 percent of respondents knew of security problems in their company’s products that had not been disclosed to the public before the devices were shipped, but just what that means in terms of attitudes towards security may be more complex than it seems.

According to the survey, just 41 percent said their company has “allocated sufficient time and money to secure” its device products against hacks and attacks. Despite this, 64 percent felt that when engineers call attention to potential security problems, “those problems are addressed before the device is released.”

Just 39 percent of responders agreed they could “find embedded security know-how when they required it.”

But should developers be security experts? One expert doesn't think that's necessary: “Your goal shouldn’t be to turn every developer into a security expert,” he said. “It should be to make sure that they’re aware of security risks, and that it’s kind of in the back of their minds.”"
