From its inception in 1975, LDRA has advocated across all industries for the international development, adoption and enforcement of rigorous software standards that ensure the safety and security of software-based electronics systems. LDRA has become a leader in standards compliance, automated software verification, software code analysis, and test tools, across all industries—automotive, avionics, rail, industrial safety, nuclear power, medical, and defense.
The hire of Andrew Banks, a 25-year veteran of safety standards development, affirms LDRA’s absolute commitment to continuing to drive industrial safety leadership—a discipline now increasingly challenged by widespread connectivity. After leading multiple coding standards initiatives in the avionics and defense space, Banks spent the last six years focused on ISO 26262 compliance for hybrid and electronic driveline technologies. This automotive expertise strongly complements the increased adoption of the LDRA tool suite by the automotive industry and enhancements made in the LDRA tool suite for Automotive to streamline automotive safety- and security-compliance. At LDRA, Banks will promote LDRA’s advancements in ISO 26262 and MISRA compliance as well as support automotive customers in adopting safety- and security-compliance in their product design and development.
