Frequently Asked Questions

 

  • What is automotive cyber security?

    Automotive cybersecurity ensures the protection and safety of communication networks, electronic systems, control algorithms, users, software, and underlying data from any cyber-attacks. These malicious attacks could cause unauthorised access, manipulation, and damage if left unprotected.

  • What will be the impact of cyber security on the vehicle infotainment system?

    Malicious attacks can access a vehicle’s networks through the OBD-II ports, compromised ECUs, and infotainment systems. As a result, they could access personal information and even damage a vehicle’s components leading to safety risks.

    Automotive cybersecurity training helps ensure the security of telecommunication networks, electronic components, control algorithms, users, software, and underlying data in the event of cyber-attacks.

  • Why cybersecurity is important in automotive?

    Every time you write a code on an automobile’s ECU, there is a risk of a malicious cyber-attack. This could damage the vehicle and even compromise personal information. The ISO 21434 training helps you deal with such challenges effectively.
