As a cooperation partner, DEKRA DIGITAL was part of the world’s largest mobility trade fair this year. At IAA Mobility, which was held in Munich for the first time this year, we hosted a panel discussion entitled “Tech vs. Trust – How to ensure Safety in Future Mobility”.
On September 9, we debated the question of how technologies in the mobility industry can be made safe in the future – with international experts in an on-site panel and broadcasted live. The discussion included topics like automated driving and regulatory challenges, as well as artificial intelligence and cybersecurity.
We want to raise awareness for making connectivity and data transmission, especially in cars, secure against external threats. The secure networking of technologies forms the basis for a safe and secure future of mobility. That is why it is crucial to test vehicles even more intensively for their security and safety requirements.
DEKRA’s designation by the Federal Motor Transport Authority has been extended to include the regulations UN-R 155 (Cyber Security) and UN-R 156 (Software Updates).
The recently published UNECE regulations require that manufacturers must operate certified management systems for software updates and cyber security throughout the entire life-cycle of a vehicle. These management systems must be reviewed by auditors every three years. In addition to services to accompany the development process, DEKRA can now offer its customers testing for cyber security management systems and software updates.
Cyber Security is a strategic focus area of DEKRA. In the Cyber Security Hub, expertise is bundled, existing services improved and new ones developed – with DEKRA DIGITAL as the driving unit. The designation is an important milestone for DEKRA, which is continuing on its digitalization course.
