Automotive Cyber Security Testing

Complete testing services for the prevention of automotive cyberattacks.

With advances in digitization, vehicle equipment becomes smarter as well: from control panels over MRO programs to classic GPS – vehicles contain a significant number of smart functions that enable them to work independently on many levels and that are connected internally and externally. Like every smart product the connected car therefore becomes a target for cyberattacks. Do you have the right partner for your protection?

What is the extent of such an automotive cyberattack?

Those threats range from simply unauthorized data capture to more serious offenses such as vehicle or property theft, criminally malicious hijacking or even the possibility of remotely overriding critical auto systems and control, resulting in accident, injury, or even death.

What is TÜV Rheinland doing for its prevention?

Through the strategic partnership between TÜV Rheinland and VisualThreat, we will deepen our services to prevent cyberattacks in vehicles and ultimately increase the safety of next generation vehicles on the roads.

We aim at helping the automotive industry test, detect and remediate the increasing cybersecurity threats targeting next generation vehicles. TÜV Rheinland’s testing facilities and experience and VisualThreat’s cyber security technology will provide automotive industry and component manufacturers with complete testing services to ensure their products are secure from cyberattacks and meet industry standards for secure performance.
