V2X and cybersecurity type approval

A couple of weeks ago, a new United Nations regulation on vehicle cybersecurity was approved. UNECE WP.29 will make cybersecurity a prerequisite for the type approval of vehicles.

The regulations are set to start implementation in the EU, Japan, and Korea in January 2021 and will reach full implementation by mid-2022.
