CISA Releases Automotive Cybersecurity Guide

Trend Micro -

US’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) recently published the Autonomous Vehicle Security Guide, providing Transportation System Sector partners a comprehensive framework to understand cyber-physical threats related to autonomous ground vehicles (AGVs).

The guide contains an exhaustive explanation of how enterprises can identity AV risks based on the attack vectors, target, consequences, and outcomes related to a specific attack. It also lays out a baseline for conceptualizing attack sequences and predicting the attack’s effects.

CISA also identified various strategies that stakeholders can use to mitigate cyber risks. Some of the recommendations include:

Reporting cyber-physical threats and vulnerabilities; Ensuring physical access points to networks and systems are secure; Adopting and implementing system security guidance, best practices, and design principles;  Developing and implementing an insider threat mitigation program; Avoiding connecting non-manufacturer, unsecured, or unknown devices to vehicle systems; and  Ensure personnel understand advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS)

“Securing AVs, like any other CPS, requires a multi-layered approach that evaluates threats to the enterprise, such as compromised proprietary data or operational disruptions, and to assets, such as an AV itself. Organizational resilience will increasingly rely on a converged approach to physical security and cybersecurity,” the agency explained.

It is vital for enterprises
