Safety and Security of Systems cannot be an afterthought.
Traditionally, safety and security were treated as separate issues. However, this view does not hold anymore as modern systems are largely interconnected: today, safety cannot be guaranteed without taking security into account, and security measures can be influenced by safety requirements.
The Dependable Systems Engineering group at AIT has a long-standing history in addressing the interdependencies of safety, security and reliability. Besides conducting leading research, the group is developing new methods and tools to guarantee safety and security of systems. In addition, it’s members are also helping to shape future industry standards by contributing to, for example, ISO TC22 (Automotive), ISO TC299 (Robotics), IEC TC56 (Dependability), IEC TC62 (Medical), IEC TC65 (Industrial Control), and AIOTI WG03 (M2M). The group also makes this accumulated experience and expertise available through trainings and consulting.
