Did you know that automotive functional safety best practices now indicate that all safety-critical E/E systems are also cybersecurity critical?
An automotive E/E solution that does not protect from an adversarial action can not be considered state-of-the-art. Breached security of a safety-critical component leads to potential liability and may result in a costly delay in production because you cannot meet your functional safety requirements any longer. Based on years of experience developing and certifying secure devices and software across various industries, Riscure has created a dedicated interactive Automotive Security Training to help development teams meet upcoming Functional Safety standards for their E/E solutions with improved security.
The training bridges the gap between formalized safety frameworks such as ISO 26262, SAE J3061-20161 and the upcoming ISO/SAE 21434 and the best practices in security. It provides three levels of security insight, and covers the following areas of expertise:
- Part 1: Fast track your security. Adding security to a product is expensive. Some costs can be easily quantified, while others are revealed in the process. Learn about the typical lifespan of software and hardware solutions, the importance of testing and how you can reduce costs.
- Part 2: Security Requirements Engineering. Save time and avoid common pitfalls by writing technical solutions that meet OEM security requirements.
- Part 3: Secure code development. Dive into the economics of secure coding and learn about the shortcomings of secure coding guidelines.
Upon successful completion of the training you and your development team will be better able to meet upcoming industry-standard requirements for Cybersecurity and Functional Safety, delivering the right security at a reasonable cost.
Interested in what our automotive customers are saying about us?
- ”Very good training in terms of content, trainer skills as well as organization. Would fully recommend it!” – Software Team Leader, Continental, 2018
- ”Very knowledgeable and deep understanding of training material.” – Cybersecurity Technical Manager, Aptiv, 2018
- ”Absolutely take the training! The staff is, to say the least, exceptional.” – Cybersecurity Lab Engineer, Aptiv, 2018
- ”Anyone writing code for or working with embedded systems should at least be aware of security issues in C & Linux. This training is an excellent way to get that awareness and learn best practices to avoid the issues.” – Embedded Software Engineer, Telit, 2018
How will the course work?
The course consists of three modules. You can choose to attend a single one, although we recommend attending all of them. Each of the three modules consists of three parts: an instructor-led live session, time for self study and a Q&A session.
During the instructor-led 2-hour live session, we discuss the relevant security definitions and topics. You have the opportunity to ask questions and interact with your trainer and other trainees. The live webinar will be recorded, just in case you cannot attend at the announced time or if you want to refresh your memory.
After the live session you will be assigned optional homework, which you should complete over the following 4 days. The homework consists of practical assignments which you can complete at your own pace, working on your own or as a team. We estimate completing the homework should take you up to 1 hour.
At the end of the 4-day self study period there is a 1 hour live Q&A session, during which the homework and all other questions you might have are discussed.
The timeline of the first module ‘Security Fast Track’ is shown below. You are encouraged to attend live sessions, but the recording will be available at any time after the session for you to study.
Who is the course for?
If your job means you are responsible for at least two requirements from the below list, then you are a perfect candidate for the training. Contact us to learn more.
- Interface with stakeholders to understand requirements, domains, viable technologies for solution development.
- Advise or manage a project team on key issues of functional safety particularly in requirements engineering, in software design and architecture development activities.
- Create, maintain and refine all documents relating to security topics such as: security plans, security objectives and requirements, functional architecture, requirements for hardware and software for automotive ECU development projects.
- Identify risks, quality issues, business opportunities, estimate effort, analyze requirements and establish priorities.
- Define architectural requirements and align them internally or as an OEM or with your customer.
Why is this course special?
Our training philosophy is centered around collaboration. We are committed to working together with you in order to mitigate and prevent weaknesses in your products and services.
