Security lifecycle design with industrial process know-how 

Etteplan has the capability to design secure embedded systems as we combine our expertise in cyber security with in-depth knowledge of industrial processes and embedded devices. By understanding our customers’ operating environment and long-term needs we can provide expert solutions for secure development of devices. Moreover, our know-how will help you ensure security for the whole lifecycle of a product, identify security vulnerabilities in existing products and limit possible implications without forgetting the importance of understanding the social aspects of security i.e. users and privacy.  

Our approach is called Security Lifecycle Design where we start by mapping your technical needs for optimal solution while looking at the whole device lifecycle. By conducting an end-to-end review of your existing embedded devices’ security infrastructure such as HW, SW, mech and IoT infrastructure, we can identify the needed security aspects and challenges with threat modelling. In other words, we help you through the entire security lifecycle of your device. 

Create a device based on security standards such as IEC 62443 

Cyber security of Operational Technology devices is becoming a regulatory requirement in EU, USA and other main markets, moving towards harmonized security standards. The understanding of the security requirements related to industrial and medical devices, helps our experts to take them into account in embedded system design, hardware selection, software development, security testing, mass-manufacturing and life-cycle maintenance. We’re the partner that is up to date on security regulations and standard developments, and will deliver you the latest information on applicable security requirements.  

Security requirements for devices include technical and organizational measures, affecting both system design and the product development process. In many industry verticals, IEC 62443 standards have been selected either as consensus security standards or basis for industry specific security standards (e.g. industrial, medical, rail, automotive, etc). Etteplan offers device creation projects considering the requirements of IEC 62443-4-1 and IEC 62443-4-2 standards for embedded systems/industrial control system components.  

In addition to compliance with purchasing and regulatory requirements, we can also help you keep your intellectual property, and your installed base of devices secure over their life cycle by component selection and penetration testing.
