Total cybersecurity for automotive supply chains.

Designed to meet the industry’s most advanced guidelines.

Latest

The automotive industry is one of the largest supply chains in the U.S., making it a prime target for hackers and nation state actors. In the majority of cases, attacks begin at the “weakest link” of this highly connected digital ecosystem: small to medium enterprise (SME) manufacturers and suppliers.

 

Background

Over 70% of all cyber attacks are targeted at SMEs. When these companies are attacked, 60% of them end up closing their doors.

To protect the large number of SMEs in the automotive industry, Cytellix created a highly affordable cybersecurity managed services solution to help manufacturers and suppliers benefit from two critical new automotive cybersecurity guidelines.

Guidelines

The first guideline, titled “Cyber Security 3rd Party Information Security”, was announced by the Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) in 2018. Participating in their creation were information security leaders and executives from GM, Ford, FCA and Honda, with input form their counterparts at Toyota, Nissan, Caterpillar, Bosch, Continental and Magna.

In addition, the automotive sector is increasingly leveraging the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity frameworks, designed to further protect OEMs and suppliers from intellectual property losses, as well as aggressive cyber attacks on individual suppliers.

Solution
