In this presentation, we show the key points to consider to unleash the full potential out of cybersecurity risk analyses. In particular, we elaborate on the actual purpose of risk analyses, talk about recently released standardizations in the automotive industry, and demonstrate the bare necessities of a valuable risk assessment. Furthermore, we introduce the three most important points to consider for such a risk analysis, i.e., the methodology, the flexibility, and the traceability. We conclude the talk by showing that risk analyses can serve as a value add if the highlighted key points are considered.

How the digital transformation is changing our lives

The COVID-19 pandemic has shown all of us the benefits of information technology. It allows us to work at a distance, to live at a distance, and most importantly, to keep in touch at a distance – with younger and older people, those closest to us, and even making new contacts.

Our society relies more and more on information and operational technologies. Examples include water, energy, heat and cooling supply, communications, healthcare, production and processing of goods, transportation, national security, banking, research and education, and food production.

What all these areas have in common is that they make intensive use of networked distributed computer systems. These systems can be attacked in many ways. This is no longer just a problem for computer “pros” because computer systems are essential to all of us. The effects of “cyber-attacks” range from power outages to the collapse of the health care or banking sectors.
