Automotive cyber-security is of growing concern for the entire automotive industry. It is today not anymore nice to have, 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 cyber-security.

Cyber-security gains across industries important. 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 cyber-security in practice. The following questions are addressed: How to identify security objectives? How do I assess the security on the basis of basic methods how TARA (Threat and Risk Analysis) and deducing security objective from? What are the typical threats? Since there can be no absolute cyber-security, the focus of the training is on a risk-based approach and of the necessary consistent methodology.

Goals and Content

Our training shows how cyber-security can be successfully implemented in automotive systems. Three different yet related approaches will be described in detail, namely
1. Product, that is cyber-security at the system level,
2. Process, covering the implementation of security concepts in the entire life-cycle,
3. Field, that is cyber-security applicable after-sales activities.

Many practical examples from our worldwide projects will emphasize how to implement cyber-security focused and at reasonable cost. Examples inlcude the full set of methods, such as TARA, but also concrete case studies such as over-the-air (OTA) software upgrades.

This training provides an introduction to the fundamentals and practice of cyber security engineering. It introduces the basic techniques for specification, analysis, testing and proofing of security. We show in practice how these techniques are applied, and help to introduce relevant processes and tools. In particular, we will show with the introduction of show to introduce and ramp up cyber-security in the company.
