Cybersecurity Challenges in Embedded Systems

Embedded systems, integral to a wide array of sectors including industrial, energy, transportation, medical, telecommunications, and consumer electronics, face an increasingly sophisticated landscape of cybersecurity threats. These systems’ complexity and interconnected nature have highlighted critical vulnerabilities, leading to potential operational, financial, and reputational damages for organizations.

Moreover, in the United States, regulatory frameworks such as the Internet of Things (IoT) Cybersecurity Improvement Act of 2020 have set stringent guidelines for the cybersecurity standards of IoT devices, compelling companies to rigorously adapt their product engineering and embedded systems to comply.” explains Christophe Villemer, Executive Vice-President of Savoir-faire Linux. “This evolving regulatory environment underscores the urgent need for embedded systems to be designed with robust cybersecurity measures from the outset, integrating comprehensive security practices throughout the product lifecycle.

Savoir-faire Linux’s Comprehensive Cybersecurity Services

Savoir-faire Linux responds to these challenges with a suite of cybersecurity services designed for product engineering and embedded systems. Leveraging its expertise in open source software and embedded systems, the company offers SBOM and CVE Management, contribution to open source projects, embedded system software hardening, and cybersecurity by design & testing. These services aim to provide transparency, reduce vulnerabilities, and ensure that embedded systems are secure, performant, and resilient.

With a focus on sustainable development and innovation, Savoir-faire Linux empowers organizations across various sectors, including industrial systems, multimedia, telecommunications, energy, transport, and consumer products, to develop secure-by-design products. The company’s approach combines skills in electronics, industrial software development, and automation, ensuring that systems are future-proof and compliant with cybersecurity certification requirements such as IEC62443 and UL2900.

At the heart of our cybersecurity services is a deep understanding of the unique challenges and requirements of embedded systems” specifies Jérôme Oufella, Technology vice-president of Savoir-faire Linux. “Our team’s technical expertise and commitment to open source solutions enable us to provide bespoke cybersecurity measures that not only protect against current threats but are adaptable to future challenges. We’re not just securing systems; we adapt them to new industry standards.
