Lieber.Group and AIT introduce new cyber security management solution in Dubai

At EXPO Dubai, the two partners present ThreatGet, a new security by design tool for developers of security-critical applications

Vienna/Dubai, 30.11.2021 – The Lieber.Group is presenting itself in the Austrian pavilion at EXPO Dubai. The cyber security management solution ThreatGet, which was developed jointly with the AIT Austrian Institute of Technology, is aimed at developers of security-critical software systems. Together, the two partners are taking a look into the future, in line with the EXPO motto "Connecting Minds, Creating the Future".

EXPO in Dubai poses the question of future visions, concepts and technologies about living together in an increasingly networked world ("Connecting Minds, Creating the Future"). The World Expo was postponed by 1 year due to the Corona pandemic and takes place in Dubai from 1 October 2021 to 31 March 2022. It is the first Expo in an Arab country. Thematically as well as architecturally, it is divided into three sub-themes: Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability. Austria has chosen the theme of Opportunity.

The Austrian pavilion is themed "Austria makes sense". Starting with the smart, sustainable architecture to the innovative projects and products in the iLab, which showcase Austria's innovative strength and economic competence. The iLab knowledge platform inside the pavilion presents concrete opportunities and perspectives with regard to digitalisation based on 52 selected innovations.

ThreatGet: Cyber Security made in Austria

At EXPO Dubai, the Lieber.Group promotes ThreatGet, the cyber security management solution developed jointly with AIT. Peter Lieber, founder and owner of the Lieber.Group, says: "We are very proud to be able to represent Austria in Dubai as a high-tech country in the software sector with our award-winning cyber security management solution ThreatGet. As we can see almost daily in the media, cyber security is of immense importance today, as digitalisation is advancing rapidly worldwide. With ThreatGet, we offer a solution in this context that is used throughout the entire development process of new systems and thus helps to realise "security by design"." Due to its innovative concept, the solution already received the Austrian eAward in the category "Industry 4.0" in 2020.

ThreatGet was developed as a plug-in for the Enterprise Architect modelling tool and guarantees e.g. vehicle manufacturers compliance with the new European Security Directive according to ECE Level (UNECE WP29) on cyber security. Threats and risks are identified and the potential threat is analysed using Threat Analysis and Risk Assessment (TARA). For this purpose, ThreatGet has a threat library based on the list of threats relevant for type approval from the UNECE, literature, threat data and other sources, which is optimised using artificial intelligence. ThreatGet thus enables ongoing cyber security risk analysis throughout the development process to ensure security by design, which is an important prerequisite for the security of today's highly complex networked systems.

Award for holistic consulting approach around ThreatGet

Lieber.Group was named the winner of this year's Constantinus Award in the Digitalisation / Internet of Things (IoT) category for its novel consulting approach to the introduction of ThreatGet. The company was commissioned by AIT to develop a holistic method aimed at consulting companies working in the field of security-critical technology architecture.

Helmut Leopold, Head of Center for Digital Safety & Security at AIT: "Thanks to the exemplary cooperation between AIT and the Austrian company Lieber.Group, we can take on an international pioneering role in the global context in the field of digital vehicle safety."
