Recognize relevant cybersecurity controls at each dimension of the automotive ecosystem

After watching the introductory cybersecurity controls video course provided in the beginning of the cybersecurity controls chapter and understanding what cybersecurity controls are, now you can dive into the cybersecurity controls relevant for automotive.

First, we will highlight the importance of applying relevant cybersecurity controls in automotive, why all key dimensions must be secured in accordance to ISO/SAE 21434, and then follow to introduce which are the key dimensions of the automotive ecosystem.

After having introduced the key dimensions of the automotive ecosystem, we will proceed to deep dive into each of them, provide a thorough explanation for each and recommendations of applicable controls or security measures. First, we will begin by explaining the first dimension: the product line security. Then, we will continue with the backend security, clarify what backend is and then go over its relevant controls.

Finally, once there is an understanding of production line security and backend security, as prerequisites for in vehicle controls according to ISO/SAE 21434, you will learn why special automotive derivatives of typical measures and controls are required in the vehicle security dimension. What’s more, you will get an overview of examples of relevant cybersecurity controls and measures for all automotive ecosystem dimensions.
