New Service Industrial IT Security & Functional Safety
As of January 2014, the emerging sectors “Functional Safety” and “Industrial IT Security” have been integrated within the TÜV SÜD Rail GmbH. The expertise is very valuable for TÜV SÜD Rail and is an excellent complement of our current portfolio and know-how.
Industrial IT Security - protecting your IT Security
These days, industrial automation and control systems can be and are often built from standardized hardware and software components. With the use of open systems, dependence on suppliers can be reduced. Integrated communication accelerates production, provides for a clearer overview and cuts development and operating costs. But at the same time: open systems are more vulnerable and therefore need to be protected from malicious attacks, sabotage and espionage.
The TÜV SÜD Rail experts help to analyze your equipment and processes, access vulnerabilities and risks and test the security of your systems. The basis for our analyses are standards like IEC 62443, VDI/VDE 2182, and DIN VDE V 0831-10x. Our inspection center is holding a DAkkS accreditation for DIN VDEV 0831-102.
Functional Safety - Management for Embedded Systems
TÜV SÜD Rail is already looking back at a long history of successfully testing components for functional safety (e.g. IEC 61508, IEC 62061, EN 5012X....).
In view of the vulnerability of open systems, restricting focus to functional safety will no longer be enough for component manufacturers. The 2nd edition of the IEC 61508 standard also requires the analysis of security aspects in order to avoid a security threat.
TÜV SÜD Rail’s experts support their clients in the development, implementation and documentation of suitable safety and security measures.
TÜV SÜD is one of the first service providers to offer combined Safety & Security certification that assesses both aspects in parallel.
