WEBINAR 1 – Deep Static Analysis Everywhere
Transferring the lessons learned from safety and security critical software to other software domains
Cyber security risks have become a cause of constant headache for most companies, and possible repercussions of an attack in an IoT context adds even further to the challenges faced by IT security teams. Previously disconnected, safety and security critical embedded software controlling the physical world suddenly becomes part of the connected ecosystem where other applications can interact with it.
Static analysis is a recognized best practice to significantly reduce software defects and vulnerabilities, but are all static analyzers equal? Which one should you choose to best protect your specific environment? How can you compare and evaluate them? Where in the SDLC can these tools best be employed?
During this webinar we will shed light on these themes, and illustrate some real-life examples of risk scenarios and how to mitigate them.
