ESSS 2017 attracted industry leaders, government representatives, regulators, aviation and defense representatives to share their thoughts on the need for addressing safety and security as a single subject while developing systems for mission critical markets. The summit extended its established role as a focal point for the 'Certification Ecosystem Development Program' (CEDP), which was initiated by LDRA to help Indian companies establish adherence to international standards and compete on a level playing field with their counterparts across the world.

The summit opened with a keynote address on 'Building Defect Free Systems: Safety & Security Perspectives' by Dr. Mike Hennell, Founder and Technical Director, LDRA UK. His talk highlighted the current global industrial demand for safety and security in the connected world, and on the market readiness for capability enhancement in response to future technology trends.

Mr. Vincent Braibant, VP MBSE Strategy, Siemens, handled the first industry keynote session on 'Extending Digital Twin Concepts to Integrated Software Engineering.' The second industry keynote, entitled 'Holistic Security Analysis and the link with Safety' was delivered by Mr. Eric Schacherer, Director of Sales, Southern Europe & India, Green Hills Software.

The two industry tracks at the summit were divided into sub-themes and supported by case studies, ensuring that each phase of the software development lifecycle received proportionate focus. The technical workshop track involved 'deep-dive' seminars on best practices for building safe and secure embedded systems.

Industry leaders and influencers representing prominent organizations such as LDRA, Green Hills Software, Siemens, ANSYS, MathWorks, SYSGO, ETAS, Honeywell, Intel, Infineon, KPIT Technologies and Harman International referenced both safety and security in their sessions showcasing new technologies and tools in the embedded space.

"The future of the embedded space hinges on how the industry understands this interdependency between safety and security, as we can no longer afford to consider them as two separate subjects," reflected Shinto Joseph, Director - South East Asia Operations, LDRA India. "The 3rd edition of this successful summit has brought the whole industry together to explore barriers, discuss solutions and witness innovative technologies designed to develop this unique challenge into an opportunity for all," he concluded.

Reflecting its ambition to contribute to a world class embedded product ecosystem, ESSS 2017 was an initiative of LDRA, supported by platinum partners Green Hills Software and Siemens, silver partners ANSYS and FTD, and exhibitors ETAS, MathWorks and CoreEL.
