IET System Safety Engineering Technical Network
The IET System Safety Engineering Technical Network has been set up to support activities that improve the development and assurance of safe systems, and to draw together professionals working in functional and systems safety.
We are looking at plans for 2022 and beyond and will be looking for some new people to join the Executive Committee in 2022 for a 3 year stint, so keep a look out for the information. If you are interested, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
for more information.
Functional Safety Impacts in Autonomous and Self-Learning Control Systems - Part 1-4
We have pulled together a four part series covering 'Functional Safety Impacts in Autonomous and Self-Learning Control Systems' on 25th May, 1st June, 8th June and 15th June at 1pm BST. You can sign up for all events at the one time, so please get involved so join us to hear our experts cover many aspects of this fascinating topic.
Adaptive Control, Machine Learning and AI are creating an inflexion point for Automated and Autonomous Systems. Ubiquitous connectivity enables deployment of these systems at scale enabling new businesses and transforming others.
This series will provide a cross industry platform to share ideas and techniques to delivery safe autonomous systems that include learning as part of their function. Register now.
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.
