Why conduct penetration testing?
After vehicle, system, or component cybersecurity design is complete, implemented, and functionally tested. Penetration testing will confirm the cybersecurity goals were actually achieved. Does the product have the security posture expected from the design phase. Is that security posture enough to prevent attackers from causing unacceptable damages?
Penetration tests offer insight into which channels your product is most at risk and thus what types of security controls you need to focus on in current and future products.
Many automotive companies and vehicles products have already been victims of cyber-attacks or security research publications causing harm.
Penetration testing has the potential to discover critical vulnerabilities, that if left uncheck, can cause loss of life, recalls, and severe financial and brand damages. Providing the penetration test reports to auditors will prove your due diligence and achieve compliance with regulations.
