  • Safety & Security Certification: What We Know and What We Don’t!

    Recorded On: 07/20/2021

    During this webinar, we are going to discuss both FTA and FRA approaches to safety certifications, and the challenges and benefits associated with each. We will also discuss cybersecurity certification for related products and systems. And last but not least, we will discuss challenges for new products to be certified by authorities.

    Safety and security certification is an integral and necessary part of any new product/solution development and/or new project. 

    Certification is being conducted at two levels:

    1. The product/solution level
    2. The project level

    Attendees will hear presenters address different regulatory jurisdictions, regulations, standards and recommended practices related to safety and security certification and the various challenges that may arise at both the product/solution and project levels.
