Automotive Security Architect (ASA)

14-hour online training

We work closely with many large automotive players and we understand that security is an important topic in the automotive industry. Especially with the upcoming UN ECE regulations and the ISO/SAE 21434 standard, which defines that any E/E system with a possible impact on Safety, Finance, Operations, or Privacy should be considered cybersecurity relevant.

The Automotive Security Architect learning path bridges the gap between formalized safety frameworks such as ISO 26262, SAE J3061-20161, and the upcoming ISO/SAE 21434 and the best practices in security. The curriculum for this learning path is designed to accelerate the time to market of your product.

When you buy this course you have access for 1 year to all the materials and support.
