Cyber security standards proving a challenge
The automotive industry will experience more change in the next five years than in the last fifty years. At the forefront of this technological revolution is the rise of connectivity and autonomous technologies.
As the industry races to connect more vehicles with drivers and their surroundings, the risk of cyber-attacks continues to rise.
A significant challenge facing the industry is the lack of clear standards on how to prioritise cyber security threats.
Last week, we were expecting SAE International to release the first standards for cyber security, but for the whole industry, this is proving even more challenging than anticipated.
It was however, re-assuring to note that the Automotive Secure Development Lifecycle (ASDL) developed by SBD and NCC Group satisfies the recommended guidelines set out in the new SAE J3061 cyber-security 'standard'.
SBD has made significant progress in providing the industry with a clear engineering approach of what the priority threats and solutions should be:
'Securing the Connected Car - Attack Points and Methods' looks at the myriad of potential cyber threats to which connected car are exposed.
'Securing the Connected Car - Countermeasures' examined the solutions available to secure connected cars from cyber-attacks.
A clear framework on cybersecurity - the Automotive Secure Development Lifecycle (ADSL)
The third in our 'Securing the Connected Car series - Balancing risk vs cost' will answer more of the big questions facing the industry:
- How should we prioritise the latest cyber threats?
- How much should we invest in cyber security?
- Are there any statutory or regulatory requirements we should be aware of?
- What other factors should be considered?
'Securing the Autonomous Car - Balancing risk vs cost' will be released in January 2016. To register your interest and find out more contact: [email protected]
