Training Automotive Cybersecurity

Automotive cybersecurity is of growing concern for the entire automotive industry. It is a must-have today, because systems are interconnected, and in one way or the other open for external penetration. Even worse, security directly impacts functionality, user experience and safety, and thus has become subject to product liability. For instance, functional safety is not feasible without a concise approach to cover security.

Training Goals

Security gains has become a key challenge across industries. More and more systems are networked and are attacked. Absolute security does not exist, but you can effectively protect. Our training is the introduction and implementation of risk-based cybersecurity in practice. The following questions are addressed:

  • How to identify security objectives?
  • How do I assess the security on the basis of basic methods like TARA (Threat and Risk Analysis)
  • How can a security objective be deduced from that?
  • What are the typical threats?

Since there can be no absolute cybersecurity, the focus of the training is on a risk-based approach and on the necessary consistent methodology.

Three different, yet related, approaches will be described in detail, namely:

  • Product, that is cybersecurity at the system level
  • Process, covering the implementation of security concepts in the entire life-cycle
  • Field, that is cybersecurity applicable after-sales activities

Training Agenda

This training provides an introduction to the fundamentals and best practices of cybersecurity engineering based on ISO 21434. It introduces Cybersecurity organization and management as well as basic techniques for specification, analysis, testing of Cybersecurity. Many practical examples from our worldwide projects will emphasize how to implement cybersecurity focused culture inside your company and at reasonable cost. Examples include the full set of methods, such as TARA, but also concrete case studies such as over-the-air (OTA) software upgrades.


  • Cybersecurity foundations for automotive applications
  • Security Standards: ISO-SAE-21434, UNECE R.155 CSMS, UNECE R.156 SUMS
  • Legal obligations and governance, cybersecurity management, culture
  • Project dependent cybersecurity management: responsibilities, plan, and case
  • Risk assessment methodology and TARA, risk level and CAL
  • Systematic security engineering
  • Security by design: HSM, secure boot and SecOC
  • Security by lifecycle: verification, validation and life-cycle management
  • Cybersecurity testing: pen-testing and fuzz-testing
  • Incident response and update management
  • Hands-on exercises on TARA, security concept and testing
  • Vector practical experiences and hands-on case studies
  • Current trends and outlook
