CSMS – Cyber Security Management System: New Regulations coming from ISO 21434 and WP.29

A Cyber Security Management System (CSMS) is soon going to become mandatory for all vehicles manufacturers and suppliers.

In the automotive industry, we are currently seeing that Cyber Security is already a critical success factor. Starting with July 2024, the type approval of vehicles will only be possible if a certified CSMS is available and Cyber Security is ensured throughout the entire life cycle of the vehicle.

UNECE WP.29, an upcoming UN regulation on Cyber Security and the ISO/SAE 21434 standard are expected to make this mandatory from mid 2024.


But what is a Cyber Security Management System ?

We have a bit of an idea from WP.29:

The vehicle manufacturer shall demonstrate to an Approval Authority or Technical Service that their Cyber Security Management System applies to the following phases:
– Development phase;
– Production phase;
– Post-production phase.


There are some phases missing here, right?

What about:

  • Design
  • Architecture
  • Change Management
  • Updates


More details in the next post.
