Automotive Electronics Congress: The art of orchestrating security

On June 19 and 20, top executives and electronics managers of OEMs and automotive suppliers will gather in Ludwigsburg. The International Congress of Automotive Electronics is an annual highlight for anyone who wants to discuss the future opportunities and challenges of the industry. Among the many high-caliber speakers, Friedhelm Pickhard, Chairman of the Board of Management of ESCRYPT’s parent company ETAS, will introduce the audience to the “art of orchestrating security.”

The central idea behind Friedhelm Pickhard’s presentation is this: OEMs will need to orchestrate their future IT security the same way they currently orchestrate their vehicle platforms. They are going to need central security management that, much like an orchestra conductor, continuously sets the tempo for implementing and operating the necessary IT security measures on every level. This “cyber security orchestration” will direct internal and external security stakeholders, harmonize their interplay, and refine the make-up of the ensemble to fit the OEM’s “security score.” A smallish “chamber orchestra” may initially suffice for today’s only partially connected vehicle functions, for instance, but ultimately a complete “symphony orchestra” will be needed in order to master the future challenges of automotive security.

The event is already sold out, but you can still register to be put on the waiting list and may be able to attend if someone else pulls out.
