Total cybersecurity for automotive supply chains.
Designed to meet the industry’s most advanced guidelines.
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.
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.
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.
To ensure best-in-class innovation and effectiveness, Cytellix forged a knowledge partnership with the NIST Manufacturing Extension Partnerships National Network. Together, our expert teams developed a dynamic solution that delivers:
- Cyber assessments based on rigorous industry standards
- Gap analysis
- Security and remediation plans
- Real-time cyber event alerts via a new security operations center
- User-friendly portal with “red/yellow/green” cyber awareness
- Mobile app for easy access to real-time monitoring, alerts and more
Supporting this is an industry-leading core methodology that includes:
- Security Program, Processes, Awareness
- Access Controls, Passwords, Data Encryption
- Vulnerability Management
- Security Incident Notification
- Network Situational Awareness
- Information Lifecycle Management, Data Retention/Disposal
- Security Audits of Suppliers/Third Parties
- Cyber Analytics
