ESCRYPT Cybersecurity Management Systems with PROOF

Compliant cybersecurity management has become a decisive success factor for automotive managers. The UNECE WP.29 cybersecurity regulation 155 and the ISO/SAE 21434 standard mandate vehicle security at type approval and for the entire lifecycle.

Safety and business impacts of cyber risks have never been higher in the automotive industry: With the adoption of automated driving and connected vehicles cybersecurity must be continuously defined, monitored, and improved. Impending automotive-specific regulation make it critical for OEMs and suppliers to set up adequate security management systems on the first attempt and with greatest efficiency.

The ESCRYPT Product Security Organization Framework (PROOF) by ETAS provides a proven methodology to optimize cybersecurity efficiency.

Mastering cybersecurity challenges with PROOF

ETAS has developed the Product Security Organization Framework that covers the developments for cybersecurity in the automotive sector in five domains: Cybersecurity management, risk management, concept & development, production & operation and ecosystem.

These domains and their subdomains and activities provide a structured, traceable approach to achieving cybersecurity in accordance with the legal and standard requirements.

Automotive cyber maturity report

ETAS conducted a survey at the beginning of 2021 with a focus on the CSMS programs at manufacturers and suppliers to find out how far the industry is with its CSMS implementations and what the remaining challenges are.

Building on your own strengths

In light of the disruption caused by digitalization, manufacturers and suppliers who are best at identifying and leveraging existing strengths will be the fastest to set up compliant cybersecurity management systems and will achieve the greatest return-on-investment.

The idea of not reinventing the wheel and optimizing cybersecurity efficiency is at the core of PROOF:  Benchmarks and targeted CSMS roadmaps increase transparency of potential gaps, hidden strengths, and enable a custom-fit optimal cybersecurity approach.

8-step PROOF implementation roadmap

To find the optimum security approach and to act according to the own company strategy and product roadmap in a holistic manner, our proven methodology for the introduction of a cybersecurity management system analyzes the organization and the product equally, and pursues eight steps. We always start with stock-taking to determine the prerequisites for the implementation of a CSMS. During this process, however, not only the need for action is examined but also existing potential upon which we can build. If the status of all subjects related to cyber security is clear, the best procedural method will be defined. Contact us to find out the best way to introduce a CSMS in your organization.
