How Static Analysis Protect Critical Infrastructure from Cyber Threats

How Static Analysis Protects Critical Infrastructure from Cyber Threats

Until recently, hackers generally didn’t target SCADA systems because doing so required physical access, and critical infrastructure systems tended to be isolated from outside networks. Now, SCADA systems are widely connected to the internet, and malicious hackers have new access through a virtual attack path.

Unaware of this trend, embedded developers are largely uninformed of the risks of insecure code, focusing on safety and reliability versus the emerging cyber threats. 

This paper will help developers of embedded and IoT systems learn how to build-in security and safeguards that are resistant to human error, natural disaster, and cyber attacks.
