Attack on Safety Critical Systems – How Automotive Cyber Security is Affecting Safety

The international VDI workshop “Attack on Safety Critical Systems - How Automotive Cyber Security is Affecting Safety” is aimed at experts and decision-makers from the automotive sector who are involved in cyber security. The workshop will present proven solutions that show how you can protect vehicles, software and drivers against hacker attacks.

Over-the-Air-Technology and its impact on cybersecurity.

Modern vehicles are connected to global data networks in many different ways. Users' mobile devices communicate with the on-board systems and SIM cards are partially integrated into vehicle electronics. On top of that, over-the-air technology provides efficient and convenient options for updates and remote diagnostics. However, increasing connectivity has risks. This is shown in numerous media reports about successful attacks on vehicle networks.

The international VDI workshop “Attack on Safety Critical Systems - How Automotive Cyber Security is Affecting Safety” gives you an overview of the security mechanisms that exist in the automotive sector and how they can be implemented in the best possible way. Based on actual scenarios, you will learn how hackers operate and which attack paths they use. Based on that, you will learn what role user authentication and signatures for updates can play in protecting safety-critical vehicle systems.

The international VDI workshop takes place one day before the VDI conference "Safety Assurance for Highly Automated Driving". If you book both events together, you will benefit from the significantly reduced combination price.

Main themes

  • Protecting safety-critical vehicle systems from cyberattacks
