Course Description

ISO 21434 Certification, Automotive Cybersecurity Training is a 5-day training and consulting course that provides guidance developed by Tonex to help the automotive industry is in the process of implementing cybersecurity in their vehicles, systems, subsystems and parts. This SO/SAE 21434 certification training provides the technical details and best practices of cybersecurity engineering based on ISO/SAE 21434. How shall we identify security objectives and How do we assess the security procedures and methods like TARA (Threat and Risk Analysis)? Learn about what typical threats are by applying cybersecurity to life-cycle, products, process, and security engineering procedures.


ISO 21434 “Road vehicles — cybersecurity engineering” specifies engineering requirements for cybersecurity risk management regarding concept, product development, production, operation, maintenance and decommissioning of electrical and electronic (E/E) systems in road vehicles, including their components and interfaces. The ISO 21434 automotive standard is important because it covers all stages of a vehicle’s lifecycle — from design through decommissioning, by the application of cybersecurity engineering. ISO 21434 applies to all electronic systems, components, and software in the vehicle, plus any external connectivity. What’s more, the standard provides developers with a comprehensive approach to implementing security safeguards that span the entire supplier chain. ISO 21434 is needed because with the increase in connectivity in vehicles — such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC, Cellular (3G, 4G, 5G and 6G) — and the development of autonomous cars, the risks of cyber-attack and subsequent damage also increase.
