Data from the automotive sector are considered to be highly sensitive and significantly determine the value of a company. If details of production processes, machines, technical processes and service measures are hacked or are unintentionally disclosed to the public or get into the hands of unauthorized third parties, downtimes often occur that can cause damage running into billions.
In the past, attacks have occurred more frequently in the automotive industry in particular. Nevertheless, advancing digitization requires that all relevant data for a smooth exchange between suppliers, customers and service providers be available at any time and place. If these data are stored online in the cloud, the compliance requirements are high.
