Implementing security as a foundation capability will also help the organisation meet international security legislation
A leading IC programming and secure provisioning services organisation, EPS Global recently announced a secure programming service aimed to address the requirements of international legislation covering cybersecurity measures for internet-connected devices. It claims to offer a range of options to enable customers to meet the new regulations and eliminate cyber security risks.
Quoting an article in Security magazine, the company said that cyber-attacks increased by 38% in 2022 globally. It said that under such pretext, in December 2022, the UK passed the Product Security and Telecommunications Infrastructure (PSTI) bill and the US, extended the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act’s cybersecurity controls to include internet-connected medical devices. It further noted that in the EU, the Cybersecurity Act strengthens the EU Agency for cybersecurity (ENISA) and gives it a key role in setting up and maintaining the European cybersecurity certification framework.
Chief Executive Officer of EPS Global, Colin Lynch stated, “In our increasingly interconnected world, cyber attackers are a major threat to property, commerce and the economy, and ultimately, people’s lives. Legislation to counter these very real threats is requiring that semiconductor devices are secure from malevolent attack and unintended compromise.”
Notably, EPS Global also works in partnership with IAR Systems, the Swedish software company that offers development tools for embedded systems, with an aim to deliver a unique end-to-end solution to enable companies to implement security as a foundation capability, making sure all end-points are tamper-proof and establishing a ‘supply chain of trust’.
Covering major electronic clusters worldwide, EPS Global identifies as one of the world’s largest independent IC Programming and Secure Provisioning Service providers, working with Tier 1 Automotive electronic suppliers, top 20 OEMs and top 50 contract manufacturers since 1999.
