Tool Management according to ISO/SAE 21434
Tools are part of the daily work for cybersecurity professionals in the automotive industry. However, tools may have an impact on cybersecurity of products. Hence, in this video you will learn why tool management is crucial, which tools you need to consider and what is the scope of tool management according to ISO/SAE 21434.
Learn why tool management is crucial for ISO/SAE 21434 compliance and enabling cybersecure products
Today’s modern vehicles contain dozens of tools which we might overlook as potential cybersecurity threats, such as infotainment and navigation system. However, such tools are vulnerable and can easily be compromised. The challenge recognizing which tools may have cybersecurity impact is not always obvious. Therefore, in this “Tool Management” video course we will provide you with best practices to establish cyber resilience along the product’s tool management.
At first, we will explain how tools and cybersecurity are related and how neglecting cybersecurity in tools leads to incorrect work products and end product.
After a common understanding on the importance of cybersecurity is accomplished, we will go over the relevant requirement of ISO/SAE 21434 and provide examples on which tools should be managed across the vehicle product lifecycle and measures to manage such tools.
As a second part, we will provide other key considerations when managing cybersecurity relevant tools, such as scope, tools as business factor, interfaces, and compliance.
At last, since ISO/SAE 21434 does not provide tool management guidance, we will go over the major steps referenced in the ISO 26262 to provide a solid foundation to manage tools.
Who the Tool Management video course is made for
For project managers
Since tools must be managed across the vehicle product lifecycle not only according to ISO/SAE 21434, but also to ensure cybersecure products, knowing which measures must be taken regardless of the project stage is essential.
For engineers in testing, software, hardware and systems
Regardless of your role, you are working with tools every day, especially now more than ever with increased vehicle connectivity. Therefore, learning and implementing tool management for cybersecurity is crucial for your role.
