Course description

SAE J3061 and ISO/SAE 21434:2021 with UNECE Regulations R155 and R156 Automotive Cybersecurity Certification

This five-day seminar covers all 14 Clauses of the ISO/SAE 21434 standard to give those attending the information necessary to understand the standard, and move your organization toward conformance.. An overview of ISO 27001, United Nations (UN) regulation WP.29 and VDA ACMS (Automotive Cybersecurity Management System) will also be provided. ISO/SAE 21434 is the cybersecurity standard that is applied to Cybersecurity Related Systems that include electric/electronic, wired and wireless communication systems installed in production passenger vehicles. The course combines presentations with hands-on work and is conducted in English. There is an optional ISO/SAE 21434 Certification exam at the end of the class for those wanting to demonstrate and document their knowledge.

This course combines presentations, along with in-class group exercises to put what you are learning into practice. Concepts are reinforced by a running case study of an air bag system. Forms are used to complete the exercises as a part of the integrated workshops that include Item Definition, Threat Analysis and Risk Assessment (TARA), Cybersecurity Goals, CAL levels, Cybersecurity Concept, and Hardware/Software Interface.
