Security for Automobile Industry

Processes, Design, Security

Process, Designs should be protected with proper security controls.

Handling personal Data

Many components through connected cars usually collects personal information of user. Because of this automotive industry should take care of security measures though all perspective.

Protecting data breaches through car hacking

Data leakages or similar breaches can damage a quite lot. In order to protect industry organisations must put proper measures and should have DPO (Data Protection Officer in place.) 

Intellectual Property Protection like Trade Mark, Copy rights, Architecture Protection, Logo, Name, Automobile Designs

To avoid IP leakage, security measures should be in place.

Challenges faced by Automotive Industry

Increase in Software Component

Software are increasingly becoming a part of automobile manufacturer Industry. This obviously increases the attack surface through which automobile Industry can be targeted. We help in reducing and making attack surface minimum by keeping controls in place and with bespoke consultancy. 

Increase in potential impact of car attacks

Many Incidents in recent year has already showed that potential impact increase much more in terms of physical damage, reputation damage and lots of other things. Organisations need to protect the industry from inherent and advanced attacks. 

More zero-day attacks

In such attacks Vulnerabilities are unknown until attack actually happens. In such situation more advanced Business continuity and disaster recovery plan help in mitigating risks.


Proper standards, regulation and framework keep necessary controls in place. In addition to this it also ensure customers about the quality of the product.

Consumer demand

Consumer Demand can sometime be challenging in terms of maintaining security through designs, privacy principles etc. We help maintaining regulatory controls.

Mitigating risk

Especially in Automotive Industry, reducing risk gap is an extremely important as this might increase the risk to the industry.

Best Practices for Automotive Industry

Governance and Regulatory Compliance:  Governance aligns a vehicle cyber-security program with an organization’s broader mission and objectives.

Risk Assessment and Management: Risk assessment and management strategies mitigate the potential impact of cyber security vulnerabilities.

Security by Design: Secure vehicle design involves the integration of hardware and software cyber security features during the product development process. We can implement ample best practices during production.

Threat Detection, Monitoring, Analysis: Proactive cyber security through the detection of threats, vulnerabilities, and incidents empowers automakers to mitigate associated risk and consequences.

Incidence Response and Recovery: An incident response plan documents processes to inform a response to cyber security incidents affecting the motor vehicle ecosystem.

Awareness and Training: Training and awareness programs help cultivate a culture of security and enforce vehicle cyber security responsibilities.

We can help in building automobile Industry Strong

Implementation of Dedicated cyber security standards

Defense in depth

Security by design

Compliance and Regulation services like PCI-DSS

Operational Risk Assessment.

Training Programs

Security Monitoring

Automotive-Specific Information Security Standard

The main priority of any security standard is to make security a vital part of the manufacture process. Automotive systems need to be protected, so there should be an effort to do that by extending the existing quality systems. That includes identifying and managing risks as well as allowing for independent reviews of information security practices.

The Difference Between Automotive and IT Systems

Nowadays it is certainly  that some IT-related practices can be applied to the automotive context when building a security framework. However, we need to consider differences between the two domains. Considering their characteristics, automotive and IT systems face different challenges. In automotive, adversaries may have physical access to devices.
