KBA Names DEKRA as a Technical Service for Vehicle Cyber Security
DEKRA is now also a Technical Service for cyber security and software updates in the automotive sector. DEKRA Automobil GmbH’s appointment by the KBA (German Federal Motor Transport Authority) has been expanded to encompass UN Regulations 155 (Cyber Security) and 156 (Software Updates). It is the next step in DEKRA’s focus on digitalization. Cyber security is an important strategic pillar for the company in this respect.
- DEKRA experts now audit manufacturers according to new UN regulations
- •Several projects with vehicle manufacturers and suppliers in progress
- DEKRA expertise pooled in the Cyber Security Hub
Several vehicle manufacturers are already working together with DEKRA for cyber security services. Experts from several DEKRA departments are currently drawing up the required appraisal reports. “The decisive factor is for vehicle manufacturers, including all suppliers, to comply with the UNECE regulations throughout the vehicle’s entire lifespan – from development to decommissioning,” says Thomas Thurner, Head of Cyber Security at DEKRA DIGITAL. “With our new appointment, DEKRA can do more than just offer services as part of the development process. We can also serve customers independently during the type approval process.”
