SBD and NCC Group form a unique cyber security partnership
Automotive technology expert SBD and global information assurance firm NCC Group have announced a unique and strategic partnership to improve automotive cyber security.
The partnership combines the expertise of SBD in connected car architectures and automotive security with NCC Group's expertise in cyber security testing. Together they have created the Automotive Secure Development Lifecycle (ASDL) to help vehicle manufacturers and their suppliers mitigate cyber security risks when developing connected cars.
The Automotive Secure Development Lifecycle (ASDL) incorporates international standards, OEM specific standards and best practice guidance using sound engineering principles. The seven-step process includes system / design architecture, definition of what is being protected, threat modelling, counter measures, best practice guidance, penetration testing and incidence response.
The process is built on the combined expertise and global reach of both companies and incorporates services such as strategic planning, design support, countermeasure evaluation, market intelligence, competitor evaluation, security awareness and training.
Over 20 Million Connected Car Sales per Year by 2020
"This strategic partnership with NCC Group marks an exciting development for SBD, coming as it does just after we announced the launch of our new office in Detroit, serving the North American market," says David Bell, CEO of SBD, adding "For many years we have been at the leading edge of automotive security and connected car architectures, helping most of the world's vehicle manufacturers and their suppliers so we are ideally placed to complement NCC Group to be at the forefront of automotive cyber security."
Andy Davis, Research Director at NCC Group said, "Sales of connected cars are set to rise to over 20 million per year by 2020, so the importance of protecting those cars from cyber-attacks has never been greater. Although vehicle manufacturers across the globe are developing a good understanding of the emerging risks, they still have concerns and questions around security, which is why we have created the ASDL to provide a robust engineering framework and a guide to industry best practice.
