The adherence to the compliance and certification objectives dictated by functional safety and security standards like IEC 61508 pose multiple challenges for Industrial Control System suppliers.
Conformance with domain and country-specific regulatory guidelines requires planning from the early stages of the product/project lifecycle. A lack of understanding of compliance objectives causes
project delays and overruns, impacting resources, time and money; in extreme cases, perhaps resulting in punitive damages.
This webinar would focus on Functional Safety with respect to IEC 61508, the de facto standard and the basis of other functional safety standards for multiple safety-critical domains.

Developing a product, many times looks easy, but commercial success rate of product in
given market is still very low. This requires not only the technical skills of the development
but also requires understanding of exact market requirements, standards applicable and
some differentiating factor to get success in the market.
We will go through need understanding of product till documentation and servicing of the
product and understand key factors in it. This webinar would focus on understanding the
user needs and scientific methods of need finding and converts them into specifications.
We are going to discuss examples, specifications, standards applicable for the
Instrumentation or IOT based product development.
With Industry 4.0, cyber physical systems are connected and need of the day is to ensure protection of these systems from any security threats generated internally and externally. ISA/IEC 62443 4-1 defines the practices for Secure product development lifecycle requirements. The objective here is to defence against negligent and wilful actions to protect devices and facilities. The Secure development lifecycle (SDL) process activities includes security requirements definition, secure design, secure implementation with application of coding guidelines, verification and validation, defect management, patch management and product end-of-life. These requirements can be applied to new or existing processes for developing, maintaining and retiring hardware, software or firmware for new or existing products. The process activities are initiated by identifying the secure components and performing a risk assessment on it, with respect to security threats while developing and deploying the product.
