28 July, 2021. Nuneaton, Warwickshire. Europe’s leading automotive engineering consultancy, HORIBA MIRA, today publishes the second in a series of White Papers focusing on automotive cybersecurity. Today’s freely available White Paper entitled Why Automotive Cybersecurity is Different explains why automotive cybersecurity demands a unique engineering approach and provides recommendations to assist vehicle manufacturers, the tiered industry supply chain and other road transport operators to help develop and operate cybersecure vehicles. 

With current vehicles increasingly generating, processing and transmitting large volumes of data, the potential threat landscape is growing exponentially from unwarranted access to personal and financial data, to malfeasance that presents a threat to the physical safety and security of road users. 

This evolving situation is changing the duty of care expected of engineers and manufacturers to road users, as well as impacting the potential challenge to corporate reputation across the entire design to operational phases of the vehicle lifecycle. 

With detailed cybersecurity experience and knowledge derived from the active contribution to new cybersecurity regulations and standards developed by the UNECE and ISO/SAE, HORIBA MIRA’s Vehicle Resilience engineers offer a uniquely informed perspective as to why the cybersecurity demands for the automotive industry are distinctly different to more traditional IT considerations.

Today’s free White Paper - Why Automotive Cybersecurity is Different - explores the threat landscape, why automotive is a unique use case, best practice in implementing proactive engineering design and reactive operational responses, approaches to cybersecurity testing and achieving cybersecurity assurance.

Anthony Martin, Head of Vehicle Resilience Technologies at HORIBA MIRA said, “The extensive, varied and challenging risk that cybersecurity poses in an automotive context presents a very distinct set of challenges for the industry to navigate. HORIBA MIRA’s substantial automotive cybersecurity expertise informs this most recent paper which spans the risks, the new regulatory context and the dual approach of security-aware design and managing the ongoing vehicle operation. While complete indemnity from evolving cybersecurity risk cannot be achieved, risk can be managed to an acceptable level to protect road users from serious harm, while helping to preserve the brand reputation of vehicle and component manufacturers.”

As part of its cybersecurity consulting services HORIBA MIRA has a suite of services expressly designed to help the industry prepare for the impact of UNECE Regulation 155. These include a UNECE Readiness Programme, peer-to-peer training, full engineering consultancy, verification & validation services, operations solutions and a CSMS audit programme to benchmark regulatory preparedness.

Today’s White Paper 2 is free to download from here. White Paper 1 is also available here.
