SafeCyberTM is a new UL platform that hosts a suite of cloud-based security solutions for connected products throughout their entire life cycle. It helps customers look at security governance and processes as well as apply security to manage and reduce product security risks.
Security Challenges for Connected Device Stakeholders
Device manufacturers, suppliers, system integrators and other stakeholders from chip to cloud must mitigate the risks of cybersecurity challenges in today’s highly connected world. Their challenges include:
- Releasing new products faster in accordance with competitive innovation cycles while maintaining strong security protections and compliance with industry regulations.
- Evaluating where they stand in terms of product security practices.
- Identifying actions that they need to take, including process improvements, security techniques and security mechanisms.
- Achieving and maintaining compliance with government policies and regulations such as the Executive Order on Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity, signed by U.S. President Joseph Biden in May 2021.
