Cyber Security and Safety Code of Practice Published

“If it’s not secure, you can’t be confident it’s safe”

Working with the National Cyber Security Centre, representatives of the System Safety Engineering TPN and other industry experts, the IET has published a code of practice that draws together the often disjoint domains of system safety and cyber security.

The Code is written for engineers and engineering management to support their understanding of the issues involved in ensuring that the safety responsibilities of an organization are addressed, in the presence of a threat of cyber attack. Based on systems engineering principles, it aims to help safety-related system practitioners manage cyber vulnerabilities that could lead to hazards, by setting out principals to improve interaction between functional safety and cyber security practitioners.
