In recent years, cyber security has received much attention, mainly due to increasing cyber attacks, unprotected IoT devices, the use of products with security vulnerabilities, etc. In the face of cyber attacks, these devices and products are unable to resist threats and would cause damage. Besides, the company's brand value and goodwill would also be affected, and even the company might be tied up in long legal proceedings. Equipment manufacturers should introduce a Secure Software Development Life Cycle (SSDLC) as soon as possible. In addition to ensuring the security of the product development, it can also meet national government regulations, security standards and purchaser's security requirements.
