What is asset identification in automotive? Video course

Understand the process for asset identification using the CIA model and recommended approaches

Learn what asset identification for vehicle cybersecurity is, its purpose during the Threat Analysis and Risk Assessment process and the steps involved. Moreover, we will also explain how the CIA model helps identify cybersecurity relevant properties. You will also get recommendations on approaches to identify assets depending on the development phase.

Learn How to Perform Asset Identification Based on Recommended Practices

In order to define if an item requires security and is cybersecurity relevant, the asset identification is performed as the first step in the Threat Analysis and Risk Assessment process. In the “Asset Identification” video course, you will learn how to identify assets with the functional and technical approach, as well as how to define cybersecurity properties with the CIA model.

First, you will get an overview of the TARA process, where you will learn why exactly the asset identification is needed for further TARA activities. Then, we will define what the asset identification process according to ISO/SAE 21434 and what a cybersecurity asset is.

Next, we will introduce the functional and technical approaches to identify assets and explain for which development stage and scenarios they are recommended for. Additionally, we will also provide a suggested process and sources for asset identification for each approach based on previous project experience and best practices.

Then, we will define what a cybersecurity property is and how the CIA model is used to determine them and their role in asset identification. Here, we will also indicate if other attributes may be needed.

Finally, you will learn how the determination of assets is done and which considerations must be taken into account for the decision making involved.

Who the Asset Identification video course is made for

For professionals in sales and purchase

In asset identification it is important to understand the impact of stakeholders in cybersecurity relevant components. Therefore, with this video course, you will get a thorough understanding on the asset identification process and its impact on you as a stakeholder, if relevant.

For software and system engineers

This video course is useful for software and system engineers involved in automotive cybersecurity as it explains the first step in the Threat Analysis and Risk Assessment. You will also learn how the CIA model determines cybersecurity properties and which approach to use for asset identification.
