LG Meets Newest Global Cybersecurity Standard for Vehicles
Improvements Made by the Company Meet the Vehicle Cybersecurity Standard ISO/SAE 21434
According to an announcement from LG Electronics (LG), the ISO/SAE 21434 standard, which is a key component of UNECE regulation No. 155, has been confirmed as being met by its automotive components (UN R155). For protection against hackers and other cybersecurity threats, this industry-standard automotive cybersecurity measure mandates that makers of vehicles and vehicle parts use certified cybersecurity management systems. The ISO/SAE 21434 accreditation for LG’s vehicle cybersecurity management system was granted by prestigious international testing firm TÜV Rheinland for meeting the highest criteria for digital security.
UN R155 and other UNECE vehicle cybersecurity standards were developed to protect current and future automobile models from the rising risk of cybercrime. Since cars now collect, access, and store a lot of data, cybersecurity has taken centre stage in the automobile industry. In order to sell their products in EU nations, automakers must implement Cybersecurity Management Systems (CSMS) and obtain Vehicle Type Approval (VTA). Similar types of laws and regulations have taken effect in places beyond the EU, like North America and Asia.
System verification for the CSMS is crucial to the competitiveness of automotive parts in this context. According to UN R155, the essential products from LG, such as in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems and telematics, fulfil the strict cybersecurity standards outlined in ISO/SAE 21434. This indicates that the business can provide its partners in the auto industry highly secure, dependable mobility solutions that meet or surpass the most recent criteria. Due to its extensive experience in creating and managing cybersecurity procedures, LG can quickly adapt to new standards, providing it a competitive advantage over rivals in the sector.
In order to give automakers confidence in sensitive car components and solutions, LG is using its certified CSMS. As time goes on, the business will also closely collaborate with its clients to test the cybersecurity of vehicles using LG technologies, ensuring that they are safeguarded against cybersecurity risks all the way through their operating life.
By acquiring Israeli cybersecurity firm Cybellum in September 2021, LG expanded its skills in this crucial area of the future of mobility. Due to LG’s dedication to and investment in cybersecurity, the firm has achieved notable successes, including the most recent UNECE verification.
Frank Juettner, CEO and director of TÜV Rheinland Korea, remarked “We sincerely congratulate LG on gaining cybersecurity management system certification in accordance with ISO/SAE 21434.” “To meet the demand for cutting-edge vehicles, the automotive sector underwent a transformation over the past ten years. Users and suppliers alike stand to gain more from bolstering defences against automotive cybersecurity threats, therefore this certification may be considered as LG’s proactive approach to ensuring security in the automotive industry of the future.
According to Eun Seok-hyun, president of LG Vehicle component Solutions (VS) Corporation, “in the age of software-defined automobiles, the capacity to supply reliable cybersecurity will play an ever-greater role in the automotive sector.” Obtaining certification for ISO/SAE 21434 compliance demonstrates our ability to quickly adjust and implement new requirements aimed at defending vehicles and their occupants against cyberattacks.
