This Virtual Conference will provide insight into the latest thinking and experiences from leading cross-industry players.

At the AESIN Security Conferences in 2019 and 2020 Industry and Academia combined to set out the Cyber resilience challenge facing the automotive industry as we transition to greater autonomy, ever increasing levels of connectivity and vehicle system complexity. To outline an approach and to ask for your help in understanding how to operationalise Cyber Resilience, what research could be repurposed to kick start a solution, and how to meet and where necessary influence our regulatory obligations.

Now in 2021 we’re back to explain and debate what, with your help we, we have done to refine the approach and to demonstrate its technical and economic feasibility at scale.

Hosted by Peter Davies, Director Security Concepts, this Virtual Conference will provide insight into the latest thinking and experiences from leading cross-industry players, considering topics such as skills requirements, digital trust, secure architecture, cryptographic keys/authentication, robustness – resilient application interfaces and remote updates/access/firmware OTA (over-the-air).

In three sessions we will cover:

  • Operationalising Cyber Resilience engineering
  • Cyber Resilience legal and insurance
  • 3rd party access, data and software implants, developing the EcoSystem

Our Speakers

Dr Stephen Lambert

Peter Davies
Technical Director, Thales

I love what I do, approach everything with energy and enthusiasm and can always see an angle. As a Technical Director of Thales in the UK I have been their leading expert on Cryptography in the UK responsible for providing cryptography and information security direction and expertise on a variety of products and projects.  Previous work includes the development and certification of flexible and interoperable commercial security solutions that are also widely used by governments; these solutions are available worldwide and support the security of both communications and infomatics in an international, multi grade environment. My specialist knowledge is at the core of the cyber defence and forensics activities that I undertake combatting existential treats against business. I can, and have, interacted on security and products at any level from Prime Minister, through Board to deep technical including Agencies, Certification Labs and partners developing and sustaining business opportunities worldwide. I have generated patents in the area of digital DNA and my research covers aspects of technical security as well as aspects of super-identities and their role in combatting human based cyber-attacks. I have lead EU security research contract and have acted as a n expert on others. As well as contributing to standards I am a frequent speaker at international conferences and deliver lectures to postgraduate information and cyber security programmes in the UK and worldwide.
