Industry and market specific cybersecurity solutions delivered by CCLAB

Automotive Solutions

Modern cars have dozens of computers on board, and they’re not just for running GPS or playing music. Computers monitor and control nearly every system on your vehicle, including steering, brakes, and the engine itself. This is why automotive cyber security is essential. Cybersecurity, within the context of road vehicles, is the protection of automotive electronic systems, communication networks, control algorithms, software, users, and underlying data from malicious attacks, damage, unauthorized access, or manipulation.

Smart Metering Solutions

Smart Metering allows utilities to get a remote and instant reading of the electronic meters used for Electricity power consumption and water utilization. Despite all the advantages presented by the smart metering system, there are always some challenges to be faced, such as security and communication. Cyber-attacks not only may threaten the consumer’s privacy but they can even lead to a compromised system with direct implications on people’s safety and society activities.

Medical Solutions

Many connected devices store or transmit patient data for which there is an expectation of both privacy and accuracy. Any sort of cyber threat could have consequences for the integrity of the data and the privacy of the patient. In fact, when building a connected device, it’s recommended to always assume your device will be the subject of some kind of cyber threat in order to mitigate such events from ever taking place. Regulatory bodies across the world have developed standards and requirements to guide medical device manufacturers with creating safe and secure connected devices.

Energy Industry Solutions

Traditional energy technologies are becoming progressively more connected to modern, digital technologies and networks. This increasing digitalisation makes the energy system smarter and enables consumers to better benefit from innovative energy services. At the same time, digitalisation creates significant risks as an increased exposure to cyberattacks and cybersecurity incidents potentially jeopardises the security of energy supply and the privacy of consumer data. Cybersecurity and challenges related to it are evolving at a rapid pace, which is why the industry faces a worldwide comprehensive reformation.

CC for the World

The Common Criteria for Information Technology Security Evaluation (CC), and the companion Common Methodology for Information Technology Security Evaluation (CEM) are the technical basis for an international agreement, the Common Criteria Recognition Arrangement (CCRA), which ensures that: Products can be evaluated by competent and independent licensed laboratories so as to determine the fulfilment of particular security properties, to a certain extent or assurance. Supporting documents, are used within the Common Criteria certification process to define how the criteria and evaluation methods are applied when certifying specific technologies. The certification of the security properties of an evaluated product can be issued by a number of Certificate Authorizing Schemes, with this certification being based on the result of their evaluation. These certificates are recognized by all the signatories of the CCRA.
