From April 25 to May 4, 2018, the automotive industry will gather at the Beijing International Automotive Exhibition, Auto China 2018. “Steering to a new era” is the motto for the trade fair, which will highlight new technological developments and provide a platform for an exchange of ideas between the Chinese and international automotive industries.
The 4th International VDI Conference on “IT Security in Vehicles” will be held in Düsseldorf on May 16 and 17, 2018. Cybersecurity experts, software engineers, and development managers from all over the world will come together at the Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel to exchange ideas on the latest developments in automotive security.
If the automotive industry hadn’t gotten the message before, the WannaCry attacks of May 2017 must have hammered it home: crypto-ransomware is a credible threat. As digital connectivity reshapes the economy and our daily lives, it is offering online extortionists a bigger and bigger target for attacks. In the future, it will not be only companies, hospitals, and public authorities at risk – thanks to smart mobility and the functions enabled by digitalization, any vehicle could be the next target.
The European Commission is planning to enact a new cyber security regulation according to which manufacturers will have to certify their products in order to confirm that they have appropriate security mechanisms to protect their products and services against attacks. For this reason, Martin Emele, Vice President Marketing and Business Strategy Cyber Security, External Affairs & Governmental and Political Relations at ESCRYPT’s parent company ETAS, took part in a political dinner debate at the European Parliament in Brussels on January 23.
In future, IT security for the Internet of Things will require a holistic approach. Because IoT applications are increasingly interconnected. This calls for lifecycle management and organizational integration alongside embedded security solutions. That is why ESCRYPT has strategically expanded its IT security portfolio to encompass smart mobility, smart industry, and smart city.
Renowned German publishing house brand eins has released its annual ranking of the most innovative German companies, and ESCRYPT was among the top performers. Based in Bochum, Germany, the provider of IoT security solutions took a top spot among SMEs in the “Technology and Telecommunication” category, earning the accolade “Innovator of the Year 2018.”
Cypress and ESCRYPT partner to deliver complete end-to-end security for the LoRaWAN Ecosystem. For this Cypress has integrated their PSoC 6 LoRaWAN stack into ESCRYPT’s LoRaWAN Key Management System (KMS) to offer customers an end-to-end Secure LoRaWAN Solution.
The main theme of the Automobilwoche conference in Munich on March 13, 2018 is the digital transformation of the car industry – under the slogan Big Data, Car Data.
From February 27 to March 1, Nuremberg will once again be hosting the world’s leading trade show focusing on embedded systems. This year, ESCRYPT will be present in numerous areas of the embedded world Conference.

Cyber threats are constantly evolving. Systems that are considered secure today can be vulnerable to attack tomorrow. The long service life of modern cars demands that action also be taken to avert potential, as yet unknown threats. Closed-loop integrated intrusion detection and prevention systems (IDPS) offer effective protection here.
The Internet of Things needs comprehensive IoT security. At Bosch ConnectedWorld, to be held at the STATION-Berlin on February 21-22, ESCRYPT will highlight its role as a pioneer – for instance in the LoRaWAN low-energy network standard, a rapidly developing technology that enables IoT devices and smart-city applications to be networked economically. Protecting a network like this calls for an intelligent key management solution (KMS).
At CES 2018, ESCRYPT is presenting its intrusion detection and prevention solution. With the complete system combining an embedded solution and a cyber security backend, automotive manufacturers can detect and defend against cyberattacks on individual vehicles or entire fleets.
Connected driving is the future. However, data exchange between vehicles and roadside equipment will only become genuinely beneficial when it is securely protected against unauthorized access. Cybersecurity specialist ESCRYPT is unveiling its secure V2X communication solution at CES 2018 in Las Vegas.
Automotive security is not just an issue of pressing urgency, it is also highly complex. This is because cybersecurity for the automotive world of both today and tomorrow goes well beyond the vehicle and its infrastructure. Accordingly, more is needed than just individual technical solutions. Effective IT security has to span the vehicle’s entire life cycle. And it must penetrate all of the processes and organizational units involved in security measures.
For anyone interested in seeing the technological trends for the upcoming years, there is no getting by CES in Las Vegas. ESCRYPT will be presenting new IT security solutions for smart mobility to the international expert community there from 9 to 12 January 2018.
