Current State

With the increase of interconnectedness, complexity, and automation of vehicles, the risk of cyber-attacks is rising.

Particularly relevant in this context are

  • functions such as connection to cloud services
  • applications
  • wireless updates of vehicle electronics
  • data exchange between vehicles and their environment

Cybersecurity is becoming a core requirement for vehicles and their components and legislators have started to respond to this. Regulations and standards such as UNECE and ISO 21434 are obligating manufacturers, tier 1&2 suppliers, as well as other partners in the eco-system to take digital security into account. At the same time, companies and their internal IT structures and production environments are under immense pressure with regard to cyber-attacks. This means that all market participants are facing several major challenges simultaneously.

Smart & secure solutions and joint efforts are of the essence!
