[ASRG-WORLD] Cybersecurity competency based ACP Framework

Join us for our upcoming ASRG-WORLD LiveStream, the global online (COVID19 Approved) version of ASRG. This time we have the pleasure of hosting Philipp Veronesi (Founder and Managing Director of CYRES Consulting) and Egon Zank (Head of Academy, Trainer and Coach at CYRES Consulting). During this presentation we get an overview about what is behind The Automotive Cybersecurity Professional (ACP) Framework and how it helps the Industry to act with new norms and regulations like ISO/SAE 21434 or UN R155. Behind these is the need to establish an organization wide and holistic cybersecurity culture and awareness. The ACP supports being prepared for upcoming cybersecurity compliance audits and assessments.


"Cybersecurity competency based ACP Framework"

The ISO/SAE 21434 requires the organisation wide evidence of competence management. Besides, also the UN Regulation No. 155 similarly claims the establishment and maintenance of a cybersecurity culture and awareness. De facto, the majority of automotive players are lacking a cybersecurity competency based framework being practically applicable. Having an eye on upcoming cybersecurity compliance audits and type approvals, the automotive industry is in great need of a holistic cybersecurity competence management for reaching compliance. How? The answer is the ACP Framework. The Automotive Cybersecurity Professional (ACP) Framework establishes the industry standard to meet these challenges.
