Building great solutions for automotive cybersecurity to keep mobility safe.

Based in the heart of the Motor City — Detroit, Michigan — Block Harbor has worked closely with automakers, suppliers, and regulators since 2014 on vehicle cybersecurity. Now, we’re applying nearly a decade of service by building the Vehicle Security Engineering Cloud (VSEC). 

Our Services       The Vehicle Security Engineering Cloud (VSEC)


Vehicle System Knowledge

Block Harbor gets it. Vehicle cybersecurity requires people that know and understand vehicle systems. Some of our first and largest projects were around cloud-based vehicle diagnostic systems for an automaker, where we focused on cybersecurity end-to-end: the vehicle, the vehicle communication interface, and the cloud infrastructure.

Regulatory Landscape

As the vehicle cybersecurity space has unfolded, Block Harbor’s focus has been on delivering meaningful solutions that solve the real headache: work products for regulations. We get that everyone’s end goal is a secure vehicle, but it needs to be done in a structured and repeatable way to meet standards and regulations. All of our solutions are driven by ISO/SAE 21434 and UNECE WP 29.

Years of Experience 

Block Harbor was founded in 2014, the same year the Jeep Hack jump started the industry. Over the years, we’ve been accumulating experience with different automakers and suppliers in vehicle cybersecurity for this particular purpose: to help our customers into the future of a standardized and regulated landscape. You can be sure that our solutions and guidance are based on a unique base of knowledge that few others in the automotive cybersecurity space offer.

Appropriate Automation 

Vehicle cybersecurity doesn’t work if it is a manual process powered by teams of hundreds. We recognize that delivering a software update or security patch inside of a structured process like ISO/SAE 21434 is intentionally slow. However, attackers and researchers aren’t going to wait for you to check all of your boxes. That’s why we’re relentlessly focused on automating repetitive work in the vehicle cybersecurity engineering process to ensure vehicles are secure and stay secure.
