Course Description

Embedded Software Engineering Cybersecurity Training is a 2-day training focuses on application of cybersecurity and risk management to embedded software and software engineering techniques. Embedded Software Engineering Cybersecurity is the process of controlling various devices and machines, using software engineering. Integrating software engineering with non-computer devices leads to the formation of embedded systems.

Cybersecurity applied to embedded software engineering is a field that focuses on preventing malicious access to and use of embedded software. Cybersecurity for embedded software provides engineering mechanisms to protect a software system from all types of malicious behavior. Normally, cybersecurity specialists work with software design teams to ensure the embedded software has the necessary security mechanisms in place to mitigate the damage from these attacks.Secure Embedded Systems include many procedures, methods, and techniques to seamlessly integrate cybersecurity within embedded software. Added security components to embedded software can impede a system’s functionality and impact the real-time performance of the mission critical systems.
