Training: Deep Dive into UNECE Cybersecurity (R155) & Software Updates (R156) Regulations

Trainings banner UNECE regulations

The UNECE (United Nations Economic Commission for Europe) has been working in the past years on drafting two new international regulations, focused on Cybersecurity (R155) and Software Updates (R156). Secura offers this dedicated training focused on providing more insight into the requirements of R155 and R156 & how these can be interpreted.

The training is addressing both the perspective of the vehicle manufacturers, as well as the components/services suppliers. As a follow-up to successful webinars on this topic with more than 250 attendees, Secura offers this 1-day on dedicated training course on the 14th of October. Together with the introduction of these two new regulations, there were a lot of discussions which started to take place between vehicle manufacturers, vehicle approval authorities or technical services regarding the implementation of the requirements. Ultimately, what we need to have in place is a level playing field for all the vehicle manufacturers in the world for obtaining their type designations.
