Nov 19, 2015

Cybersecurity, rather than being the aim of application development, often exists in opposition to delivery of software and software-enabled automotive systems.  Even with multi-year product roadmaps, developers of automotive applications face the same pressures as their enterprise and consumer electronics counterparts. There are constant pressures to prototype, create and deliver software on-time and at budget, and to meet ever more aggressive lifecycles and shorter market windows. Consequently, software is often deployed with the “paint-still-wet” core functionality mostly in place, but without additional investment needed to harden applications and systems against cyberattack.

This webinar, presented by the GENIVI Alliance, will review the evolving automotive product lifecycle and examine ways and means to integrate cybersecurity as an integral part of software development. In particular, it will lay out best practices for “appsec”, including, security tools (e.g., for code quality), vulnerability tracking, supply chain security, pen testing, development vs. deployment configuration management, and security in both traditional (waterfall) development and agile environments.
