Implementing Automotive Cybersecurity in the Supply Chain

Vehicles are becoming increasingly complex with many convenience, functional, performance, and safety features added constantly. Such complexity and multitude of features also introduce many attack surfaces enabling attackers reach vehicle assets and incur losses to stakeholders. Per the ISO/SAE 21434 standard, automotive cybersecurity is a condition in which assets are sufficiently protected against threat scenarios to electrical or electronic components of road vehicles and their functions. The area of security is not new which originally started in the area of IT (information technology) security to later include operational IT security, and industrial security.
