With over 147,000 employees in 45 countries around the world, Aptiv is a global technology company focused on creating the next generation of active safety, autonomous vehicles and smart cities.

Technology-focused mobility solutions introduce an increased need for implementing and testing product cybersecurity standards to ensure that Aptiv’s products are not susceptible to malicious attacks.

Aptiv’s cybersecurity lab conducts cybersecurity consulting and testing on every new product during the entire development process. The team works closely with product engineers to ensure the company’s products are up to the latest security standards and impenetrable from outside attacks.

Our Cybersecurity Management System (CMS) is a web app that automates the entire product cybersecurity process. This five-tiered process includes threat analysis, mitigation remediation, vulnerability assessment, penetration testing and incident response.

Maintaining all cybersecurity-related information for Aptiv products, our CMS includes database trackers to visualize important trends and analyze data for threats, vulnerabilities, risks, incidents and mitigations.

CMS provides the source of communication between product and cybersecurity engineers who utilize our app’s request system and task management service to increase productivity and streamline Aptiv’s entire cybersecurity process.

Our Cybersecurity Management System is an ASP.NET app written in CSS and HTML. Our backend database is implemented with MS SQL.
