Pocket Guide

A quick and straight-forward introduction for automotive cybersecurity

With the ISO/SAE 21434 Road Vehicles – Cybersecurity Engineering Standard (based upon FuSa standard ISO 26262) for the first time, and in an entire new way, almost all operations, roles, procedures, processes and participating entities as a whole are affected by a standard on automotive cybersecurity. The intentionally abstract standard concerns the entire ecosystem surrounding the (future) vehicle. This makes it even more important to assure a quick introduction to the new standard, considering the wide scope of areas that are affected.

Our newly created Pocket Guide is supposed to be your comprehensive and user-friendly reference work for your individual analysis of ISO/SAE 21434.

It will be your new starting point for delivering effective automotive cybersecurity.
