Cybersecurity as a new quality dimension in automotive

Mastering the impact of cybersecurity requirements on quality management

Experts agree: quality and quality management form the basis for cybersecurity compliance. The evolving regulatory landscape in relation to cybersecurity has far-reaching implications for quality management in the automotive industry. Cybersecurity must be integrated into core processes as an omnipresent requirement. Cybersecurity goes beyond traditional quality criteria and creates new necessities in order to design structures, products and processes in line with the latest security standards and customer requirements. This involves audits, assessments, checklists, the influence of cybersecurity in risk management, audit criteria for service delivery and much more.

Learn about the impact of cybersecurity for the Quality role, and get to know the tools to prepare, implement, and execute the different tests ensuring the quality during each cybersecurity activity developed in a project. Now you will find all learning content of the live training available as a video course series.

Advantages at a glance:


  • Integration of cybersecurity into existing quality review procedures: incorporating specific cybersecurity criteria into checklists, audit catalogs (etc.) ensures that vehicle-related developments not only meet product security requirements, but also regulatory compliance.
  • Advanced audit and certification processes relating to cybersecurity: The consideration of cybersecurity in type approval-relevant auditing processes and corresponding new customer requirements leads to a more comprehensive redesign of existing QM initiatives and measures.
  • Enhancing skills for the evolution of risk management: The integration of cybersecurity risks into assessment processes is becoming a necessity for the proactive management of potential vulnerabilities and a stronger focus on preventative measures.
  • Cybersecurity integration into project-related quality management: The integration of additional cybersecurity criteria requires an adjustment of the quality perspective on development projects, for example through new/adapted tollgate criteria within the product development process. This requires a holistic understanding that goes beyond traditional quality control.
