Security requirements for digitalised product lifecycle management

In a world of changing threats, managing a product’s digital lifecycle requires continuous assessment of threats and risks to the development process and the end product, and mirroring identified security requirements against them.

In addition to threat modelling, systematic verification of product information security, for example through penetration testing, increases the certainty that cyber resilience is up to date. Threat modelling and penetration testing must be linked with development (DevSecOps) as a regular activity, and these are repeated at least when product versions are updated.
