Automotive cyber security experts need to be familiar with a wide range of topics and domains, in order to properly assess and design the security posture of their vehicles across an increasingly complex ecosystem. The continually increasing threat of cyber-attacks on vehicles has led to the release of multiple standards, best practices, and guidelines designed to assist OEMs and Tier 1s address these threats and align their cyber security strategies accordingly.

Argus Cyber Security experts are happy to bring you this dedicated automotive standards and compliance blog, which will summarize standards and regulations from a broad range of global agencies, national regulatory bodies, and automotive safety institutions, such as: 

Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers (the Auto Alliance), the Association of Global Automakers, U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the GSM Association (GSMA), the European Standards Organization (ETSI), the Uptane Alliance, the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE), the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP), the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), Herstellerinitiative Software (HIS), the Trusted Computing Group (TCG), the E.U. E-safety Vehicle Intrusion proTected Applications project (EVITA), the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE International), Global Platform, the U.S. Department of Transport National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (DOT NHTSA), the Automotive Information Sharing and Analysis Center (Auto-ISAC), the European Union Agency for Cybersecurity (ENISA),  Japan’s Information Technology Promotion Agency (IPA), and the U.K. British Standards Institution.
