As the area of cyber security is a very quick evolving topic there are currently different standard and regulations in development that define a set of requirements in the area of automotive security. Relevant standards and regulations are, among others, ISO 21434, ISO 24089, UNECE R155, UNECE R156. For car manufactures and suppliers it is essential to understand which requirements ae existing and defined and how they are interconnected.

We offer a Bachelor Thesis:

Automotive Security – Security Requirements


  • Identify standards and regulation in the area of automotive security

  • Experiences with Information Security Standards like IS 27001
  • Strong analytical skills
  • Knowledge in automotive security a plus

Remuneration: The successful completion of the thesis is remunerated with a one-time fee of EUR 1,700 before tax.
