Security Engineering – Developing Secure Software

Categories Safety Relevant Development

General Information
3 Days

The news about security gaps in software are becoming increasingly commonplace, but it is no longer just software systems that are affected. As a result of increased networking, the software used in pacemakers, insulin pumps, cars and industrial automation systems is at much greater risk than manufacturers take into account. This makes for fatal results, particularly in functional safety.

The term 'IT security' is now on everybody's lips as a result of these news. However, there is still not enough attention being paid to secure development – security engineering or security by design. In order to constructively avoid security gaps, software has to be developed in a secure manner from day one.

This seminar has been designed to awaken a basic understanding in secure development, highlights threats and attacks and presents the appropriate methods for avoiding security gaps as much as possible throughout the entire software development process.
