The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) is a multidisciplinary professional engineering institution. The IET was formed in 2006 from two separate institutions: the Institution of Electrical Engineers (IEE), dating back to 1871, and the Institution of Incorporated Engineers (IIE), dating back to 1884.The IET is one of the world’s largest engineering institutions, with 169,000 members in over 150 countries. The IET is working to engineer a better world by inspiring, informing and influencing our members, engineers and technicians, and all those who are impacted by the work of engineers.
The Cyber Security and Safety Code of Practice, developed by the IET with input from the National Cyber Security Centre, sets out a series of principles designed to ensure safety and cyber security teams work together effectively to address the threat of cyber attacks. The aim of the Cyber Security and Safety Code of Practice is to help safety-related system practitioners manage cyber security vulnerabilities that lead to hazards. It does this by setting out principles, based on a systems engineering approach, which, when applied, will improve the interaction between the disciplines of functional safety and cyber security, which have historically been addressed as distinct activities.
The objectives for organizations that follow the Cyber Security and Safety Code of Practice are to manage the risk to safety from any insecurity of digital technology; to provide assurance that this risk is acceptable; and where there is a genuine conflict between the controls used to achieve safety and security objectives, to ensure that these are properly resolved by the appropriate authority.
