Preventing cybersecurity attacks in safety certified AMR system

When it comes to securing safety certified system such AMR (Autonomous Mobile Robot), the safety might be considered as a black-box that isn’t or shouldn’t be influenced by security attacks, but the opposite is the right approach. Security experts and security architects should assess the safety systems embedded in their products, how they can be tampered, and they should map threats that can tamper with the safety building blocks of their product and the right mitigations to secure them.

Safety focuses on the potential result of an occurrence defined as a risk. Something will be identified as a Safety problem if there is an unacceptable risk of damage to people, property, or the environment. Safety (and Functional Safety) deal with random and unintentional events - accidents and failures where Security deals with intentional acts. It is not possible to be truly Safe without also being Secure.

If you are developing a product with safety aspects that talk will provide you insights on protecting a safety certified system form cyber security attacks as well maintaining the system’s safety aspects under all scenarios.
