Safety meets Security - why cyber security is a key requirement for functional safety
Production and IT are increasingly networked with each other in the context of Industry 4.0. This also requires the connection of functions that were previously considered separately: safety and security. If automation solutions for the realization of functional safety become the target of hacker attacks, safety and security must go hand in hand. Therefore a common strategy must be developed for the future. Carsten Gregorius and Dr. Lutz Jänicke present how this can work and what needs to be considered.
