Developing software and technical systems securely from the outset
Safety and security by design refers to the consideration of all security aspects along the product life cycle of technical systems - from the beginning of the development process, not just in testing or during operation. Nowadays, operational safety and attack and information security are inextricably linked. Protecting people and the environment from system errors and failures goes hand in hand with protection against industrial espionage and tampering, because in the technical systems of today, there is no safety without security.
Safety and security by design are also becoming increasingly important in the planning of industrial plants and automated production processes. This is because the potential for attack increases as the software share increases and networking becomes more extensive. No matter if you are a manufacturer of technical systems or a software producer and operator, identifying suitable safety measures early on in the development process will help to avoid additional costs. The later safety or security vulnerabilities are discovered, the more time-consuming and expensive it is to fix them.
