Safety First podcast gives insights on cyber security
No doubt, during the corona crisis cyber attacks are on the rise. So, what should we all be prepared for? Together with Sam Curry, Chief Security Officer of Cybereason, we take a deep look into cyber security for 2020 and beyond
Healthcare cyber security - safe and secure or an open door?
The Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) presents powerful opportunities for device manufacturers to develop new competitive advantages, as digitisation delivers increased efficiencies and unmatched flexibility, enabling real-time data access for medical practitioners to improve patient care. Richard Poate, Senior Manager at TÜV SÜD explains the issue of healthcare cyber security.
Cyber security and the IoT
Digitisation and the increasing connectivity provided by the Internet of Things (IoT) bring enormous opportunities, but also unforeseeable risks and serious vulnerabilities that can be exploited by new forms of cyber crime. Joe Lomako, Business Development Manager (IoT) at TÜV SÜD, explains the link between cyber security and the IoT.
IoT and the digital twin
Industry 4.0 or the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), describes the application of IoT in industrial processes and manufacturing. By implementing solutions related to big data, machine learning, digital twin, artificial intelligence (AI), predictive analytics etc., manufacturers aim to achieve the optimal level of responsiveness, adaptiveness and fully connected processes. Joe Lomako, Business Development Manager (IoT) at TÜV SÜD ex...
Bringing notified body auditing and testing together
As the regulatory requirements of the global medical device market are complex and vary between regions, manufacturers are faced with increased product development costs and time to market challenges. Richard Poate of TÜV SÜD explains.
Aerospace fluid susceptibility test service launched
TÜV SÜD has launched its new fluid susceptibility test service, to help aerospace manufacturers determine whether materials used in equipment can tolerate the damaging effects of fluid contaminants. TÜV SÜD’s new fluid susceptibility test service will rigorously test aviation components to ensure they comply with the requirements of aerospace and defence standards.
Ensuring functional safety of medical devices
As digitalisation and automation progress, electrical, electronic or programmable electronic systems (E/E/PES) are used increasingly in the field of safety applications. Growing complexity and connectivity bring new requirements for the functional safety of systems, with previously separate applications growing closer together. Richard Poate, Medical Health Services Manager at TÜV SÜD explains.
How do you prepare for unannounced audit visits?
The European Union (EU) has a mandatory requirement for Notified Bodies to conduct unannounced audit visits, at least once in every third year, to all manufacturers certified under one of the European medical device directives. Richard Poate, Senior Manager at TÜV SÜD Product Service, explains what measures to put in place to prepare for this eventuality.
EMC and RF testing chamber reduces costs and time to market
The TÜV SÜD Product Service has invested more than £400,000 in a new EMC and RF testing chamber, and will for the first time offer 24-hour testing services. Based at TÜV SÜD Product Service’s Hampshire headquarters, the new semi-anechoic EMC chamber is in addition to its eight existing ones, significantly increasing capacity to meet exponential market demand for a one-stop compliance service.
Exploring the behaviours of AI systems in autonomous driving
Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) and TÜV SÜD are launching a joint project to certify systems based on Artificial Intelligence (AI) used in autonomous driving and develop a ‘road worthiness test’ for algorithms. To do so, the experts will explore the learning behaviours of AI systems with the aim of being able to control the systems reactions. The main objective is to develop an open platform, known as &lsq...
Testing is not black and white with RED
With the world going wireless, radio equipment covers an ever growing variety of products, driven by the growth of mobile devices and wearable applications aiming to increase our levels of connectivity. Therefore, it is vital that this equipment is tested correctly as Jean-Louis Evans, Managing Director at TÜV SÜD Product Service explains.
TÜV SÜD appointed Certified Body for Cyber Essentials programme
It has been revealed that TÜV SÜD United Kingdom has achieved Certified Body status for the UK Government’s Cyber Essentials programme, which is designed to protect organisations from cyber security threats. Organisations certified by TÜV SÜD can promote that their IT systems comply with a Government-endorsed standard, demonstrating that they are protecting their own and their customers’ data by having a robust and...
Company offers guidance on ISO 9001
A comprehensive guide has been developed by TÜV SÜD for entrepreneurs, consultants and auditors and all those engaged in the establishment, certification and continual improvement of quality management systems (QMS) according to ISO 9001:2015. The guide interprets and explains the requirements of the standard in order to facilitate its implementation.
Wearable device market faces safety compliance dilemma
TÜV SÜD Product Service has warned that the wearable device market is facing a compliance dilemma, trying to apply current test standards and methodologies to this rapidly evolving technology, leaving manufacturers, retailers and end-users vulnerable to potential risks. Manufacturers and retailers could be compromising both the quality and safety of their products because they rely on off-the-shelf electronic components, which have...
Reducing risk in the aerospace supply chain
Jean-Louis Evans, Managing Director at TÜV SÜD Product Service, explains how those supplying airline manufacturers should approach qualification and compliance testing.
How safe is your power supply?
Ensuring that a power supply is safe for a particular product is complex, with at least 15 separate testing considerations required. With an abundance of power supply options, what are some of the testing considerations that should be taken to ensure that a product and its power components are safe? Jean-Louis Evans, Managing Director at TÜV SÜD Product Service, answers these questions.
What are the risks in medical device design?
Jean-Louis Evans, Managing Director at TÜV SÜD Product Service, explains how legislation can keep pace with the fast evolution of medical technology. While medical technology evolves at a fast rate, traditionally test standards develop much more slowly.
Experts discuss shared infrastructures for smart grids in Europe
How can we work hand-in-hand with the telecommunications and energy sector in Europe to successfully further develop and operate smart grids? What possible scenarios in terms of a shared future are conceivable, what strategic barriers need to be overcome and how can the collaboration be launched successfully?
Safety service aids IEC 62368-1 compliance
A hazard-based safety engineering service to help electronics manufacturers cope with the requirements of the new IEC 62368-1 standard for audio visual and information technology products has been launched by TUV SUD Project Service. IEC 62368-1 is the first standard to introduce a hazard-based approach, rather than the more prescriptive method traditionally used for product safety.
