Penetration Tests

Ensure the documentation and performance of your cybersecurity systems and components meet the ISO/SAE 21434 standard with penetration tests from SGS.

To meet ISO/SAE 21434 standards your systems will have to undergo rigorous testing and assessments.  

ISO/SAE 21434 assessments

The word ‘assessment’ has a dual meaning in the world of cybersecurity according to ISO/SAE 21434. Broadly speaking, these can be described as:

  • Documentation assessments
    A formal, content-related assessment of the product documentation with regards to cybersecurity as defined in ISO/SAE 21434. SGS experts use extensive checklists to thoroughly check the documents for conformity. 
  • Performance assessments
    These assessments step outside the prescribed framework of ISO/SAE 21434 to test the performance of security measures in simulated attacks. A complete assessment of embedded cybersecurity can only be made once corresponding tests or analyses have been carried out.

ISO/SAE 21434 penetration tests  

A penetration test is an authorized simulated cyber-attack on a computer system which is designed to test its security and identify vulnerabilities. SGS has developed its own penetration tests for this purpose.

If penetration tests have already been carried out, our experts will review the test documentation and incorporate the results in our technical report. We will also issue a certificate if required.

SGS and automotive cybersecurity
