How AutoThreat® Supports Automotive Cybersecurity


Lead Cyber Threat Researcher

AutoThreat’s® automotive-focused analysts scour the surface, deep, and dark web for incidents that matter most to the automotive ecosystem. Together, our researchers combine both manual and automatic engines to learn the impacts of each incident on the automotive industry. This automotive-specific focus keeps Upstream’s specialists in the know of the latest incident vectors, methods, and mitigation techniques, even before details become public.




Upstream’s AutoThreat® provides a comprehensive cyber threat assessment to help automotive stakeholders manage assets, risks, and vulnerabilities detected in their supply chain.

AutoThreat’s automotive-focused analysts scour the surface, deep, and dark web for incidents that matter most to the automotive ecosystem. What’s great about this, is that together, our researchers combine both manual and automatic engines, and by using both together, they   compile credible incident details such as the attack methods, and the vectors, but they also research and learn the impacts of each incident on the automotive industry. 

With this data, the entire automotive ecosystem can now follow trends, identify vulnerabilities, and gain a wider context of this critical realm in one central repository.

With AutoThreat, we give our clients detailed reports regarding their assets and supply chain components, and we’re allowing them to comply with Annex 5 of UNECE WP.29 R155 and ISO/SAE 21434. This is critical information, and now they can mitigate against asset-relevant cybersecurity threats throughout the full lifecycle of their vehicles. 

To improve the convenience of this data, we have a user-friendly interface to consume information but also offer integrated APIs that deliver a streamlined data flow. This helps OEMs, Tier-1s, and Tier-2 suppliers keep up-to-date with the latest incidents through their already deployed systems and workflows.

We believe in bolstering the cybersecurity knowledge base for the entire industry. And that’s why, we share a free community version of our AutoThreat® incident repository openly. We are allowing all companies to stay alert with the latest incidents and worldwide automotive cybersecurity trends.
