Webinar: UNECE WP.29 and ISO/SAE 21434: Cybersecurity Engineering tailored for Commercial Vehicles | Online

Cybersecurity gains importance with the connectivity and autonomous driving trends in the automotive industry. This is recognized by the upcoming UNECE cybersecurity regulation and the planned release of the ISO/SAE 21434 – a standard on cyber security engineering for road vehicles – by the end of 2020. Both, the regulation and the standard, require commercial vehicle companies to establish a proper process for cybersecurity engineering. It is expected that such a process will be mandatory for vehicles that are put on the road from 2022 on. For commercial vehicle OEMs and suppliers, this raises the question of what needs to be done to be compliant and how to get there.

Even companies that have already established security engineering processes face the challenge of balancing time-budget-quality trade-offs for their individual components and products. The challenge for engineering departments is to tailor the methodologies that are used to produce the process artifacts since the processes are typically flexible and do not prescribe the used methodology to the last detail. This flexibility is good and intended to account for the diversity of products within a company but induces the need for individual interpretation. In consequence, this means nearly any development department in any domain has to deal with cybersecurity and tailor its specific approach. No matter if chassis, power train or ADAS.

In this webinar, we provide a brief introduction to the upcoming regulation and the ISO/SAE 21434 standard. Based on that, we share insights on how we have successfully established and implemented security engineering processes to the engineering departments of our customers. Particularly, we share the pros and cons of various approaches to implement cybersecurity methodologies that we have supported.
