Comprehensive Cybersecurity Solution for the Automotive Supply Chain
Providing Affordable Compliance-Based Cybersecurity Services Complying with Guidelines published by AIAG
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 who attack the “weakest link” in this highly connected manufacturing digital ecosystem: small and medium enterprise (SMEs) manufacturers and suppliers. Over 70% of all cyber-attacks are targeted towards SMEs and when they are attacked, 60% of these businesses are forced to close their doors.
Cytellix launched an affordable cybersecurity managed services offering to help both automotive manufacturers and suppliers comply with the new automotive cybersecurity guidelines, “Cyber Security 3rd Party Information Security”, announced by Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) in May 2018. The resulting document was created at AIAG with information security leaders and executives from GM, Ford, FCA and Honda, and socialized with their counterparts from Toyota, Nissan, Caterpillar, Bosch, Continental and Magna.
More and more industries are seeing cybersecurity compliance and regulations being implemented, leveraging the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity frameworks, to protect both OEM’s and suppliers from intellectual property loses and the aggressive cyber-attacks on the SME suppliers.
Cytellix partnered with NIST Manufacturing Extension Partnerships National Network to provide affordable enterprise-grade cybersecurity services and high quality consulting that includes: industry standards based cyber assessments, gap analysis, security plans, remediation plans and a real time cyber event alerting security operations center, a user-friendly portal, with “Red, Yellow, Green” cyber awareness; provide cyber policies, and a mobile app to access real-time continuous cyber situational awareness.
