Our hands-on workshop is based on the "Automotive Cybersecurity" training course and can also be attended separately.

A central topic of this workshop is the implementation of risk-oriented cybersecurity in practice. We deal intensively with the following questions: How do I identify security goals? How do I assess security using the key methods, such as TARA (Threat and Risk Analysis), and how do I derive a security goal from this? What are the typical threats?

Practical exercises and current case studies give you the opportunity to deepen and apply what you learned in the "Automotive Cybersecurity" training course. Practical experience and many application examples will help you to develop solution strategies for your own processes and to successfully implement information security in automotive systems.

In the exercises that are part of this workshop your individual current questions can of course also be dealt with.

Additional bonus: The widely used assessment tool COMPASS is introduced. You will receive a demo version with full functionality for your own entries. Further, there will be case studies using the Vector Grey-Box PenTest methodology.
