Home > ISO Training > SAE J3061,ISO/SAE 21434:2020, and Related Standards: Overview for Functional Safety Engineers

Seminar Content

This two-day course will give the participantthe base knowledge necessary for practitioners who will be involved in the development and assurance of automotive cybersecurity related to new products utilizing electrical and electronic elements through the use of the ISO/SAE 21434 Automotive Cybersecurity Management System standard applied to Cybersecurity Related Systems that include electric/electronic systems that are installed in production passenger vehicles. An overview of ISO 27001, United Nations (UN) regulation WP.29, and VDA ACMS (Automotive Cybersecurity Management System) will also be provided.

Who Should Attend

This course is designed for managers, engineers, and new product development support personnel.

Recommended Training and/or Experience

Participants should have a working knowledge of their organization’s New Product Development Process.

Seminar Materials

Each participant will receive a seminar manual including case studies.

Seminar Goals

  • Tailor the necessary activities to support automotive cybersecurity lifecycle management, development, production, operation, maintenance and decommissioning
  • Understand the integration of ISO/SAE 21434 with ISO 26262, APQP, IATF 16949 and other related standards.
  • Understand cybersecurity aspects of the entire development process (requirements specification, design, implementation, integration, verification, validation and validation)
  • Understand the automotive-specific risk-based approach for determining Cybersecurity Assurance Levels (CALs)
  • Use CALs for specifying the necessary cybersecurity requirements for achieving an acceptable residual risk
  • Provide requirements for validation and confirmation measures to ensure a sufficient and acceptable level of cybersecurity is being achieved.
