The road to autonomous cars is connected through a range of portals to a plethora of cyber services and functionality. Connectivity technologies ranging from Bluetooth to 5G are opening channels to new horizons of growing value delivered through artificial intelligence (AI), personal assistants, infotainment and advanced user experiences (UX). This dramatic increase in connectivity creates a potentially large attack surface that is attractive to hackers. Software and hardware security failures can cause a broader range of problems and be more expensive to fix than mechanical failures -- and be more damaging to an automaker's brand.
Automotive OEMs and suppliers, long accustomed to focusing on mechanical reliability and safety, now have the added responsibility of establishing a secure cyber foundation. The first thing OEMs, Tier 1, and Tier 2 suppliers can do to minimize security risks in connected cars is to think like a hacker. The second is to adopt new techniques and technologies to build security into automotive software and systems from the start.
Key Topics for Discussion
In this webinar, Synopsys will explain how hackers think and discuss a range of techniques for building in security at the most fundamental levels to minimize vulnerabilities in connected cars, including:
- Establishing a security risk management process in parallel with safety processes.
- Motivating an organization to look at software and system development from an attacker’s perspective including identifying, classifying, and categorizing risk factors.
- Selecting security IP that enables more cost-efficient silicon design and the highest levels of security for automotive applications.
Who Should Attend
Executives, software development managers and system architects at automotive OEMs, and Tier 1 – Tier 3 automotive suppliers interested in learning more about security risks and solutions for automotive applications will benefit from this webinar. Financial analysts and the media are also encouraged to attend.
