Cybersecurity as a new building block in automotive development project management


Establish cybersecurity as a new competence in overall project management

For project managers in automotive development projects, the integration of cybersecurity means a fundamental expansion of responsibilities along the entire project lifecycle - especially with regard to new customer requirements, the planning of additional roles and competencies, the allocation of resources required and the development and adaptation of processes. These transitions require a comprehensive understanding of cybersecurity requirements and the ability to manage projects with the ever-evolving cybersecurity landscape in mind.

Learn about the impact of cybersecurity in the automotive industry as Project Manager to appropriately plan cybersecurity activities, as well as coordinate them with the different stakeholders involved in the project. Now you will find all learning content of the live training available as a video course series.

Advantages at a glance


  • Understanding the requirements of regulations and standards: With knowledge of relevant cybersecurity standards and regulations in project planning, project managers can ensure that projects meet the latest market and customer requirements.
  • Integrating new roles and competencies into projects: The full integration of cybersecurity requires the involvement of new roles and competencies within a project team, resulting in more diverse and complex project and team structures to manage.
  • Knowledge of changing resource allocations: The holistic consideration of cybersecurity aspects in resource planning, including necessities in the post-development phase, must be ensured properly. Cybersecurity-specific knowledge is the basis for successful project execution.
