Hesai Technology announced it obtained the ISO/SAE 21434 automotive cybersecurity management certification from TÜV Rheinland, an international authoritative third-party testing and certification institution in Germany, becoming the first lidar company to receive this certification.
ISO/SAE 21434, an automotive cybersecurity management standard formulated by ISO and SAE, covers the full product life cycle, including concept, development, production, operation, and scrapping. It helps OEMs and suppliers assess and manage cybersecurity risks of road vehicles to meet global regulatory requirements, Hesai says.
Information security has presented a significant challenge for the transformation of automotive industry, Hesai says. The development of intelligent driving has made the internal systems of vehicles more complex, handling more interactions with human, road, vehicle, and cloud-based information. As vehicles become where data is stored and exchanged, there is an increasing risk for cyberattacks, which could cause personal information leaks and property loss, making the cybersecurity of automotive components highly important, according to Hesai.
Hesai says it will continue to improve its security management systems, deliver high-quality and reliable products for global customers, and promote cybersecurity awareness to empower the future development of intelligent driving.
