SGS explores cybersecurity for software-defined vehicles

SGS, the world’s leading testing, inspection and certification company, has published a Consumer Compact article which details essential security concerns for manufacturers of software-defined vehicles (SDVs).

An SDV relies on software for operability, constantly interacting with the surrounding environment, collecting and organizing data to enable safety and efficiency in vehicle systems. These high-performance computer systems are separate from the vehicle’s hardware, making it easier to update. However, it also makes the vehicle more vulnerable to cyberattacks as there are multiple entry points.

The Consumer Compact article focuses on design and computer chip security. With traditional testing methods no longer enough to ensure compliance with regulatory standards, SGS Brightsight offers comprehensive solutions, including integrated system certification, to provide full platform security assurance incorporating both hardware and software components.
