Safety-Critical Systems Club
For Everyone Working in Systems Safety
The SCSC is the UK's professional network for sharing knowledge about system safety. It brings together engineers and specialists from a range of disciplines and industries working in system safety, academics researching the arena of system safety, providers of the tools and services that are needed to develop the systems, and the regulators who oversee safety.
The SCSC provides seminars, workshops and tutorials throughout the year, with a three-day annual Safety-Critical Systems Symposium in February.

SCSC Seminar on Software Maintenance
Software Maintenance: Legacy and Archaeology, Thursday 6 May, 2021 - Zoom, https://scsc.uk/e817
This seminar considered the issue of software maintenance for safety systems. Often we have an incomplete view of the design and code and yet changes have to be made. What are the best strategies to use? How do we understand what the existing code does? How can we make safe changes? How do we re-verify? The speakers at this event explained their methods for tackling change to legacy code.
Code of Practice: Cyber Security and Safety
I'm pleased to announce that after 32 months of hard work and cross discipline/cross sector discussions, the IET has published the Code of Practice: Cyber Security and Safety. This work was supported by NCSC and is available for free download from the IET website.
