Learn how to be aware of possible cyberattacks and ensure functional safety at the same time

What are the rising challenges for cybersecurity and functional safety?

 

When it comes to your business’ cybersecurity, the development and monitoring of embedded systems used in safety-critical operational technologies (OT) requires a great deal of IT expertise. The responsible employees will need to be aware of possible cyberattacks, while also possessing a good working knowledge of related subject areas such as functional safety. With every upgrade, update or new development, security vulnerabilities can arise that can get companies into big trouble. Sensitive data can fall into the wrong hands, and software, people and technical equipment can be damaged.

 

Developers of embedded systems for the automotive or industrial sectors must strive for a secure design and implementation that ensures data security and reliability throughout the entire lifecycle. Security gaps in a company's own cybersecurity and product cybersecurity environment must be prevented or detected at an early stage. Our functional safety and cybersecurity course can help you to pinpoint these weaknesses and learn how to overcome potential challenges.

 

TÜv sÜd’s Cybersecurity WORKSHOP IN THE CONTEXT OF Functional Safety

 

Who should take part in our Functional Safety and CYBERSECURITY courses?

The target audience of the workshop is primarily project/security managers, cybersecurity experts and IT managers, as well as security engineers and developers with or without functional security experience. If this is you, you may want to know more about cybersecurity requirements for embedded components in the field of security applications.

 

We offer different functional safety and cybersecurity training modules and workshops covering various experience and knowledge levels, either if:

  • You are new to the topic of cybersecurity and functional safety and require an introduction
  • You need some understanding of the functional safety and cybersecurity basics
  • You already have a basic understanding of cybersecurity and functional safety and require more advanced knowledge
  • You are already experienced in cybersecurity and need to extend your expertise in functional safety specifically
  • You are already experienced in functional safety and need to extend your expertise in cybersecurity specifically

Whatever your needs, we are happy to assist you in choosing the right workshop for your experience level, or alternatively, we can create a tailored functional safety/cybersecurity workshop based on your individual needs.
