What is a cybersecurity plan and how it is structured in automotive
A cybersecurity plan is the central document for tracking all cybersecurity activities and their progress. Hence, knowing how it is structured, developed, and what aspects are required by ISO/SAE 21434 is essential for cybersecurity in the vehicle industry. This is exactly what you will learn during this short 13-minute video course, as well as what is the role of the cybersecurity plan during the concept and development phases.
Learn how to develop a cybersecurity plan as required by ISO/SAE 21434
Cybersecurity planning is crucial to achieve cybersecure products and, as already mentioned, to comply with ISO/SAE 21434. Undoubtedly, the cybersecurity plan is an essential document during cybersecurity planning and can’t be neglected as it defines important aspects necessary for projects and all involved stakeholders. Especially, when cybersecurity activities can be distributed and clients as well as suppliers need to define a plan for their respective activities.
Therefore, in this “Cybersecurity Plan” video course, we will explain what a cybersecurity plan is and how to correctly create it and develop it.
First, we will introduce the concept of cybersecurity planning, cybersecurity relevance for items and components. What’s more, you will get a clear overview of the cybersecurity plan requirements according to ISO/SAE 21434.
Secondly, we will explain how to develop a cybersecurity plan step by step during the concept and development phases as well as when it should be updated. Once there is a common understanding on how to create a cybersecurity plan, we will provide a sample cybersecurity plan to give you a reliable point of reference based on best practices and explain each content section.
At last, we will also present the costly consequences of neglecting a cybersecurity plan to reinforce the importance and impact it has across organizations’ projects and roles.
