The Path to ISO/SAE 21434 Cybersecurity Compliance


Increased vehicle connectivity options are vital to providing the best driving experience for consumers. However, the adoption of over-the-air software updates, numerous connectivity protocols (including Bluetooth, WiFi, 5G cellular, USB), and in-car networks like CAN, MIPI, and automotive Ethernet, accelerates cybersecurity risks.

To mitigate risk and satisfy consumer demand for optimal security, SAE and ISO collaborated to publish the ISO/SAE 21434 Road Vehicles—Cybersecurity Engineering standard. Many companies in the automotive supply chain have already announced their commitment to adopting the standard and implementing it in their software-defined vehicle (SDV) development process. In addition, new government regulations require automakers to implement an automotive cybersecurity management system.

This 60-minute Webinar will outline the fundamentals of the ISO/SAE 21434 standard as well as discuss the requirements and the impact of a structured cybersecurity management system for the development of automotive grade IP throughout the automotive product lifecycle.


Bill Mazzara, Subcommittee Chair, SAE Vehicle Electrical System Hardware Security Committee

Bill Mazzara, a technical fellow of global vehicle cybersecurity, he is the SAE Vehicle Electrical System Hardware Security Subcommittee Chair which has published SAE J3101. He also serves on the SAE/ISO Joint Working Group for Road Vehicles Cybersecurity Engineering which has published ISO/SAE 21434. Having begun his career as a test engineer during the infancy of the connected car, Bill has witnessed and been a driving force in the evolution of the field being granted 29 related patents in the process. As it became apparent that the lack of cybersecurity was an unfortunate oversight of the connected car, Bill became part of the solution. Bill served on the response team charged with addressing what is widely considered one of the automotive industry’s first cybersecurity incidents against a passenger vehicle, the incident chronicled in 2010 study by researchers from the Universities of California San Diego and Washington. A Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), Bill holds a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from the University of Notre Dame in addition to masters’ degrees in wireless communications and business administration.
