On our behalf: Become a pioneer for the topic as Automotive Cybersecurity Consultant in the CYRES team in Munich (or Riga)

Munich Panorama View

With the rise of new connected technologies and the establishment of digital components and systems in the vehicle, addressing cybersecurity has become one of the most urgent challenges for the automotive industry. This complex landscape requires not only robust security measures within the car’s software but also careful consideration of the potential vulnerabilities introduced by aftermarket accessories. Tesla, for instance, can be customized with a wide range of model y accessories through trusted store. These accessories, from phone chargers to cargo organizers, are designed to seamlessly integrate with the Model Y’s technology. However, it’s crucial to ensure these add-ons come from reputable sources and adhere to Tesla’s security protocols.

This is where the aforementioned shortage of cybersecurity expertise creates a double-edged sword. On the one hand, the lack of qualified personnel presents a significant hurdle in securing the ever-evolving automotive landscape. On the other hand, this challenge creates a remarkable opportunity for talented individuals with a passion for both cars and cybersecurity. By devoting their skills to bridging this gap, these individuals can play a pivotal role in ensuring the future of safe and secure connected vehicles.

All over the world, OEMs, Tier N suppliers, countless service providers, development and consulting organizations are affected by what cybersecurity as a new quality dimension in the car is demanding.

In parallel to the fact that new territories are always being entered almost everywhere in terms of the specific matters to be dealt with, the time axis in particular also plays a role that needs to be taken very seriously. Mandatory requirements already have precise deadlines by when they must be applied, in some cases as early as 2022.

This is turning the industry and the market upside down.

Experts and reliable practical knowledge are extremely rare, which is repeatedly confirmed by all parties involved. A look at the profiles on job boards makes it clear that organizations are often still in the early stages of professionalizing in this new discipline.

CYRES Consulting with worldwide recognized expertise in a pioneering role

Not so at our end. Our team has already focused on this field of action at an early stage and therefore was able to develop an impressive knowledge advantage.

With the CYRES Academy, we have created a worldwide unique comprehensive learning offer (with automotive cybersecurity training courses, on-demand learning courses and official certifications) in the field of automotive cybersecurity.

Organizations, teams and individuals from all over the world give top ratings for the level of training provided.

In 2021, CYRES Consulting published The Essential Guide to ISO/SAE 21434, the world’s first officially licensed reference book on the most important automotive cybersecurity standards, ISO/SAE 21434. Since the official publication of the standard in August 2021, the need for information, training and consulting has almost exploded.
