As the largest vehicle manufacturer in Turkey, Ford Otosan ramps up for upcoming cybersecurity regulatory compliance with CYMOTIVE’s vulnerability and compliance management solutions and services.
TEL AVIV, June 27, 2022, CYMOTIVE Technologies, the leading provider of smart mobility cyber solutions, today announced that the leading vehicle manufacturer in Turkey, Ford Otosan (Ford Otomotiv Sanayi A.Ş.) has selected CYMOTIVE to support its cybersecurity compliance certification of the UNR 155 and 156 regulations and to maintain continuous regulatory compliance.
Upon implementing CYMOTIVE’s automated vulnerability and compliance management solutions and other cybersecurity services, Ford Otosan’s heavy commercial brand Ford Trucks will achieve vehicle-type certification, enabling the OEM to sell its heavy-duty commercial vehicles in countries requiring compliance with the UNR 155 and 156 regulations. Among other methods, CYMOTIVE uses a digital twin to implement reverse image engineering to enhance and verify the data received from the OEM’s SBOM (Software Bill of Materials) in the compliance process. For real-time information on compliance status, CYMOTIVE’s cybersecurity management solution will support Ford Trucks’ continuous monitoring for the years to come.
With CYMOTIVE’s automated cybersecurity solutions for vulnerability mitigation and compliance management, car manufacturers and component suppliers remain confident as to their compliance status for the upcoming cyber regulations, such as the UNR 155 following the ISO/SAE 21434 standard. The CYMOTIVE vulnerability management solution automatically maps all software and hardware vulnerabilities to the electronic control units (ECUs), prioritizes them according to the risk of their potential impact and damage, and recommends the best path for risk minimization. The solution also provides the documentation required for regulatory vehicle type certification compliance.
“We have selected CYMOTIVE because it is critical for Ford Trucks to work with a very experienced cybersecurity provider”, said Serhan Turhan, Ford Otosan Vice President / Ford Trucks Leader. “Regulatory compliance is an extremely complex process, and we look forward to CYMOTIVE’s automated, stream-lined processes and systems for our heavy-duty commercial vehicle type models.”
