VicOne Receives ISO/SAE 21434 Certification for Automotive Cybersecurity From DEKRA

DALLAS and TOKYO, May 23, 2024 — VicOne, an automotive cybersecurity solutions leader, today announced it has received the ISO/SAE 21434 certification for automotive cybersecurity from DEKRA. Following the ASPICE CL2 level certification from DEKRA in 2023, this signifies VicOne’s commitment to providing automotive cybersecurity software tools and solutions that comply with international automotive cybersecurity standards. It positions VicOne as a valuable partner for suppliers in the automotive supply chain that are entering the electric vehicle industry, enabling them to effectively reduce development and production costs.

ISO/SAE 21434, jointly developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), serves as a crucial standard supporting the United Nations Regulation on Cybersecurity and Cybersecurity Management Systems (UN R155). This standard defines cybersecurity risk management requirements for automotive electronic and electrical systems throughout their entire life cycle, encompassing conceptualization, development, production, operation, and disposal phases. Compliance with ISO/SAE 21434 standards assist automotive manufacturers and parts suppliers in meeting global automotive cybersecurity management regulatory requirements.

“As we embrace the era of the IoT, cybersecurity becomes a core requirement in the increasingly interconnected and intelligent automotive manufacturing and development processes,” said Aaron Lee, Managing Director of DEKRA Taiwan. “In the fiercely competitive automotive market where every second counts, leveraging internationally certified automotive cybersecurity software tools and solutions help achieve more efficient implementation and compliance with automotive cybersecurity. International standards are the best way for automotive manufacturers and suppliers to reduce development and production costs.”

“Amid the increasingly connected functions and applications adopted in the automotive industry, VicOne has long been affirmed for its capabilities in developing best-in-class cybersecurity products and solutions to ensure safer and more secure connected vehicles,” said VicOne CEO, Max Cheng. “Following our ASPICE CL2 certification from DEKRA last year, we have now obtained the ISO/SAE 21434 certification. This further demonstrates VicOne’s advanced development capabilities and excellent quality control, which enables us to provide more reliable and trustworthy products and solutions to world-renowned car manufacturers (OEMs) and suppliers.”

Achieving ISO/SAE 21434 compliance demonstrates VicOne's commitment to cybersecurity in automotive systems, enhancing its reputation and trustworthiness in the market. The conventional approach in the automotive industry is centred on functional safety, with ISO 26262 being adopted to ensure the seamless functioning of software and hardware. However, as electric and intelligently connected vehicles experience rapid growth, information security introduces a host of new and unpredictable risks and challenges to the industry. Therefore, it’s about enhancing credibility, competitiveness, risk management, customer trust, and regulatory adherence in the automotive cybersecurity landscape.
