Learn what ISO/SAE 21434 Means with Item Definition

When it comes to Item definition in accordance with ISO/SAE 21434, it is important to understand: The Item definition requires the involvement of various teams and functions. Here, responsibility cannot simply be shifted to those responsible for cybersecurity. Errors or missing information have far-reaching consequences for the entire further development cycle.

The purpose of this video course is to provide a holistic first overview of the Item definition according to ISO/SAE 21434.

In the first half of the video course we present the cybersecurity development procedure along the ISO/SAE 21434. Here you will learn about the role of the Item definition within the Concept Phase (as stated in Clause 9 of ISO/SAE 21434).

Then you will learn how exactly the term ‚Item‘ is actually defined. After that, the attention is directed to what exactly is meant by a ‚definition‘ within the Item definition.

Then it becomes more precise: How exactly is an item definition made? What is required for this? Here you will get a more concrete overview of the information required for an accurate Item definition.

After watching this video, please also have a look at the other (free / paid) video learning courses on Cybersecurity Development, or on the Concept Phase within ISO/SAE 21434.
