Security Engineering & Consulting

Protection of vehicle electronics against manipulation & hacker attacks

Remote attacks on networked vehicles and wireless interfaces pose a threat to both information security and functional safety at the vehicle and system level. The use of professional security engineering is a key factor for developing secure vehicles and vehicle systems and the active implementation of risk prevention. In the development of the future generation of information and entertainment devices Assystem Germany takes over the conception, coordination and validation of the protection against attacks on customer data and vehicle electronics by hackers and computer criminals. Our Competence Centre for security engineering is at the centre of these efforts. Here we bundle long-standing automotive knowledge with current security expertise - from security requirements and safety analysis up to the implementation of secure hardware and software or wireless software updates after SOP.
