We provide customized cybersecurity support for your engineering and development

As vehicles are becoming more and more connected, the risk of cyberattacks is growing exponentially. OEMs and tier-N suppliers are faced with the mammoth task of not only developing advanced vehicles efficiently along the highest quality requirements, but also adequately considering cybersecurity in development work.

Cybersecurity engineering is becoming a bottleneck. It is necessary to make the required cybersecurity know-how available within one’s own organization and to contribute to development work at full speed. Advanced training and education are aiming in the right direction, but they do not meet the practical requirement that cybersecurity issues are accompanied by enormous time pressure. Regardless of whether resources are simply lacking or an organization is confronted with these tasks for the first time, there is a demand for support to be put in place.

With the offer of the Cybersecurity Engineering Check Up by CYRES Consulting we have created an entry point where we support your development teams with our Cybersecurity Engineering expertise in vehicle development project-specific and cross-project as strategic and/or operational support around Cybersecurity quality. This creates a win-win situation: your internal teams learn without you taking risks for the product.

Cybersecurity for Developers and Engineers

Leverage our expertise to effortlessly integrate cybersecurity into your projects. Without losing sight of the schedule and constraints of your development project. Tailored to software and hardware projects and their required cybersecurity requirements and work products.

Support for Cybersecurity Engineers

Lack of capacity, specialized knowledge just emerging or it’s even your first project with cybersecurity requirements? No problem! Our Cybersecurity Engineering Check Up provides tools and hands-on support to ensure high-quality cybersecurity implementation at the operational level.

Empowering Cybersecurity Managers

Cybersecurity without compromise: With our Cybersecurity Engineering Check Up you ensure that security measures in development work are properly implemented along regulatory requirements (UN R155, ISO/SAE 21434 and others) and at the same time sustainably. Contact us to discuss your situation together.

Project owners, Managers and co.

The holistic fulfillment of cybersecurity requirements in the project, on the engineering level, across projects and along the entire organization is a key lever for successful development work. We put your approach to the test and work on the implementation of the requirements in a practical way.

We are your reliable partner for establishing cybersecurity in challenging development projects

When looking for support for the implementation of all aspects of cybersecurity in development work relating to vehicles/vehicle components, it is always necessary to find the expertise and qualifications required on the one hand and to be able to define appropriate commercial conditions on the other.

For sophisticated development projects, which can involve a large number of work products, a high number of FTEs and a huge project volume, it is essential that you can rely 100% on your partner.
