New possibilities often go hand in hand with new risks. Increased networking of vehicle systems and rising exchange of big data means that the danger of cyber-attacks is growing. Protecting automotive IT from these threats is essential if innovative systems are to be brought safely onto the roads. This is why we need experts who live and breathe IT security and who can use innovative software solutions to develop countermeasures from threat analysis through to developing and implementing a suitable security architecture. Together with a team of specialists, you will be responsible for safeguarding future mobility.


As part of the development of electronic control units (ECU), you are responsible for the implementation and further development of security concepts as part of the software architecture.
