IT- and Embedded Security

Nowadays complex systems in many industry domains are connected to each other in different ways. More and more safety-critical systems undergo this trend, too. For those systems safety without security is not possible any longer, because a security issue can lead to safety losses. With more than 25 years of experience in safety-related projects, Philotech founded the Embedded Security Competence Center in 2014 in addition to the Functional Safety Competence Center. From its headquarter in Cottbus, the Competence Center coordinates the other Philotech offices all around Europe. 

Constantly gaining new experiences, the team is currently specialized for the following industry activities:


  • Security Audits and Assessments

  • Penetration Testing and Red Teaming

  • Secure Software Development / Application Security Management

  • Security Trainings

  • Process management for Information Security

Security and the System Lifecycle

Security is always a time dependent function. Even perfect security means of today can be obsolete tomorrow, because of technological improvements or more sophisticated attacks. Therefore it is important to manage the security of systems, devices or software components over the entire lifecycle. High quality development processes can reduce the overall costs by applying security related activities in all stages of a product's development lifecycle. Well defined and established incident response processes contribute to that in a way that occurring security problems are communicated targeted, investigated quick, and resolved immediately.
