With the rising role of electronics in automobiles, cybersecurity is becoming a critical aspect of automotive product design and development. In addition to addressing industry specifications, safety standards and country requirements, manufacturers and suppliers must now also understand and mitigate the risk of cyberthreats to their products.

UL offers comprehensive automotive cybersecurity training and education to help product engineers and security professionals understand relevant security processes, related standards and their impact on products, components and systems. Delivered by UL cybersecurity experts, our interactive training uses engaging instruction, exercises and examples to reinforce learning and help you apply your knowledge to your automotive products, components and systems.

Introduction to automotive cybersecurity

Gain a foundational understanding of cybersecurity fundamentals, compliance and best practices. Our introduction to cybersecurity training presents common cybersecurity terminology and definitions to help you understand what cybersecurity is and why it’s critical to automotive products’ safety and functionality. The course covers the common security threats, how they happen and the corresponding implications of an attack. Our experts provides an in-depth examination of the relevant regulations and standards, including UNECE WP.29 and ISO/SAE 21434. The training concludes with best practices to help you apply cybersecurity principles to your automotive product design and development. 

Participants who complete this training are eligible to take a two-hour certification exam. Those who pass the exam are individually certified as a UL Certified Cybersecurity Professional in Automotive or UL-CCSP.

Upon successfully completing the UL-CCSP exam, participants will receive a certificate and badge they can use to demonstrate their competence in cybersecurity for automotive systems. The certification is good for three years, after which individuals may recertify.

Threat modeling and threat analysis training

Explore the methodology used to identify cybersecurity threats to automotive products and systems. Our in-depth training provides an overview of threat modeling and threat analysis concepts, methods and tools. We discuss how to identify the physical and digital assets requiring protection and how to recognize vulnerable attack surfaces. We’ll explore various threat scenarios and the actors who enable attacks to happen. The course concludes with guidance on how to perform a complete threat analysis, including the different methods to measure threats and how to use threat analysis in risk management.

Principles of risk management training

Developing a connected product immune to cyber threats is impossible due to continually emerging risks. Instead, automotive product and security professionals must demonstrate how they manage cyber risk. Our principles of risk management training explains how to implement a risk management system in accordance with WP.29 and ISO/SAE 21434. The course describes how to implement the necessary processes and best practices to identify, categorize and treat risk, and how to continuously monitor cybersecurity incidences.

Unmatched experience to expand your cyber expertise

Our instructor-led automotive cybersecurity training and education are provided online or in-person by UL experts. We also offer private or custom training workshops with content tailored to your specific business requirements.
