To ensure the type approval of automobiles from the middle of next year, all OEMs are currently striving to comply with new regulations. The supply industry is busy implementing the cybersecurity requirements set by the OEMs. A "Certificate of Compliance," issued by technical service companies like TÜV or DEKRA, confirms the implementation of parts of the ISO/SAE 21434 standard. By the middle of next year, companies along the automotive supply chain should have at least formally completed their homework.
However, meeting cybersecurity requirements alone is not enough to comprehensively protect vehicles from hacker attacks. There exists a cybersecurity bucket list that goes beyond the introduction of industry standards and regulatory measures. In our presentation, we will showcase examples from this list and shed light on the challenges of implementation along the supply chain. Decisions need to be made on whether to cover topics internally or collaborate with external partners for specific aspects, as well as implementing continual cybersecurity activities.
