Vehicle systems are becoming increasingly intelligent, connected and interactive. The rapid progress made in software-defined vehicles, autonomous driving technology, and the widespread adoption of ADAS have given vehicles a certain degree of intelligent control. Moreover, vehicles now have autonomous decision-making capabilities. All of this necessitates a greater level of cybersecurity.

ISO/SAE 21434 is an automotive cybersecurity management standard jointly formulated by ISO and SAE. It is the first international standard in the auto industry that addresses road vehicle safety issues. The standard was officially released in August 2021. It covers the entire product life cycle from conceptualization, development, production, and operation, to disposal. It aims to help automakers and their suppliers comprehensively manage road vehicle’s cybersecurity risks, ensuring compliance with the security management regulations of the global automotive network. Furthermore, this helps in preventing or reducing cybersecurity risks caused by malicious attacks. Additionally, it minimizes the impact on individuals, property, and privacy.

Since this new ISO/SAE 21434 standard has been set, Hesai has successfully completed the certification. Hesai has also implemented these cybersecurity management standards.
