Ensuring compliance and cybersecurity with audits and assessments is a topic for the entire automotive value chain

For all organizations involved in vehicle manufacturing, whether at OEM level or Tier-N supplier level, fulfilling the ISO/SAE 21434 demands and providing evidence of achieved cybersecurity is a major topic. In this video course „Cybersecurity Audits and Assessments“, you will find comprehensive information regarding audits and assessments.

To introduce the topic of audits and assessments, we will first go over the costly consequences of neglecting compliance to ISO/SAE 21434 and explain the different aspects and scope between audits and assessments.

In the following section, you will get a deeper understanding on what an audit is, as well as about important factors to successfully audit organization processes. Additionally, you will get a first overview on how the ISO PAS 5112 and VDA QMC Automotive Cybersecurity Management System Audit can support on performing audits in your organization and across contractual partners.

On the second part of the video course, you will learn what cybersecurity assessments include, what you should consider to ensure an assessment is properly performed, and recommended approaches as to when you should perform cybersecurity assessments depending on your capabilities and product.
