International VDI Workshop - Automotive Hacking in Practice
with a certificate of attendance
The VDI Automotive Hacking in Practice Workshop will help you understand the mindset of hackers and data thieves and give you an overview of the main aspects of cyber security in vehicles with a focus on the driver. You’ll be introduced to the methods, techniques and tools used by hackers in practice and will learn to look at various topics through their eyes. This will equip you with the knowledge to determine necessary security systems and to verify them more accurately. Furthermore, you will gain the skills necessary to set up environments and tools that can be used as pentests to validate safety mechanisms.
Great technological leaps also bring major security challenges
Any connected device is technically vulnerable to hacking. This applies as much to a computer at home as it does to an electronic system in a vehicle. Modern cars are more computerized than ever. Infotainment and navigation systems, wi-fi, automatic software updates, sensors and other innovations aim to make driving more convenient. Hackers are attracted by the increasing amount of personal data captured in the electronic systems of cars and the servers connected to them. These range from contacts, emails and ID numbers to drivers’ musical preferences, their weight, the journeys they have made and the destinations they have visited.
With increasing automation, it’s more important than ever to understand the mindset of hackers and data thieves and how they operate to keep vehicles safe. Vehicle technologies haven’t kept pace with today’s increasingly hostile security environment and the threats to connected cars and the autonomous cars of the future. This includes not just the vehicles themselves, but also the ecosystem they operate in. The industry has to be aware of the risks and begin to incorporate cyber security from the earliest stage of design. Traditionally in the automotive sector, safety and security were treated as two separate disciplines. Now they are finally starting to converge.
This VDI workshop will give you the knowledge and skills to understand the mindset of a hacker and look at things from their point of view. That will help you make the right security choices and put you in an ideal position to tackle the technological challenges future advancement will bring.

Your Workshop Chair
Dipl-Ing. Juergen Belz, CEO of PROMETO GmbH, Germany
Juergen Belz studied electrical engineering and industrial automation. He started his career at KUKA Robotics in electrical drive engineering and power supply. He then went on to manage system and software development for hybrid vehicles at Continental and was given an award for a “Forward-looking Software Initiative”. Belz was responsible for engineering methods and infrastructure at automotive tier 1 supplier Hella KGaA Hueck & Co for over 7 years. He was the first to achieve SPICE Level 3 in the automotive domain and presented the first prototype for AUTOSAR-ECU in a vehicle. Belz has also managed system and software development for hybrid vehicles at Continental and was given an award for a “Forward-looking Software Initiative”.
