An OEM and Automotive Supplier’s Guide to the UNECE WP.29 Cybersecurity Regulation

To curtail the expected rise of cyber attacks against connected vehicles, governmental bodies and independent regulators have made an effort to demand an increase in ingrained cybersecurity measures from vehicle OEMs, component and software suppliers, and mobility services. One such regulation is the UNECE WP.29 Cybersecurity and Cybersecurity Management Systems (CSMS) regulation.
