Cybersecurity Standard for Vehicles

SEOUL, Feb. 20, 2023 — LG Electronics (LG) has announced that its vehicle components have been verified for complying with ISO/SAE 21434, fundamental for the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe’s (UNECE) regulation No. 155 (UN R155). This standard automotive cybersecurity measure requires vehicle and vehicle parts manufacturers to employ certified cybersecurity management systems for protection against hackers and other cybersecurity threats. Meeting the highest standards for digital security, LG’s automotive cybersecurity management system has earned the ISO/SAE 21434 certification from leading global testing organization TÜV Rheinland.

UNECE vehicle cybersecurity regulations, including UN R155, were established to make current and future car models safer against the ever-increasing risk of cyberattack. With vehicles now collecting, accessing and storing a large volume of data, cybersecurity has become a major focus for the automotive sector. In EU countries, auto manufacturers must adopt Cybersecurity Management Systems (CSMS) and get Vehicle Type Approval (VTA) in order to offer their products. In regions outside of the EU, such as North America and Asia, similar types of rules and regulations have come into force.

In this environment, CSMS system verification plays an instrumental role in the competitiveness of automotive parts. LG’s key products, including in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems and telematics, meet the stringent cybersecurity requirements set out in ISO/SAE 21434 according to the UN R155. This means the company is able to supply its auto industry partners with highly secure and reliable mobility solutions that meet or exceed the latest standards. Based on its considerable experience in developing and operating cybersecurity processes, LG can respond quickly to new standards, giving the company a distinct advantage over other industry players.

LG is utilizing its certified CSMS to develop confidence in vulnerable vehicle components and solutions for automakers. Moving forward, the company will also be working closely with its customers to test the cybersecurity of vehicles employing LG solutions, helping to ensure they are protected against cybersecurity threats throughout their operational life.

In September 2021, LG enhanced its capabilities in this highly important area of future mobility by acquiring Israeli cybersecurity company, Cybellum. LG’s commitment to and investment in cybersecurity have seen the company achieve meaningful results, including the recent verification from the UNECE.

“We sincerely congratulate LG on obtaining cybersecurity management system certification according to ISO/SAE 21434,” said Frank Juettner, CEO and director of TÜV Rheinland Korea. “Over the past decade, the automotive industry has transformed to meet the demand for advanced vehicles. Strengthening protection against automotive cybersecurity threats ultimately benefits both users and suppliers and this certification can be seen as a preemptive response by LG to prepare for security in the future automotive market.”

“In the era of software-defined vehicles, the ability to deliver reliable cybersecurity will play an ever-greater role in the automotive industry,” said Eun Seok-hyun, president of LG Vehicle component Solutions (VS) Company. “Gaining certification for ISO/SAE 21434 compliance shows that we can adapt and respond quickly to new regulations designed to protect vehicles and their occupants from cyberattacks.”

      Leader in Mobility Sector Innovation, Company Exhibits Its Cutting-edge Technologies,
      Provides Insights into Evolution of Software-defined Vehicle at EVS37

      SEOUL, April 23, 2024 — LG Electronics (LG), a respected mobility sector innovator, is participating in the 37th Electric Vehicle Symposium & Exhibition (EVS) at COEX in Seoul, South Korea, from April 23–26. Hosted by the World Electric Vehicle Association (WEVA), EVS has a proud 55-year history and continues to attract top manufacturers, academics and thought leaders from around the globe. At EVS37, themed ‘Electric Waves to Future Mobility,’ LG will showcase its latest electric vehicle (EV) technologies and solutions, including batteries, charging systems and EV components.
      This year’s event will play host to more than 600 booths, with an anticipated attendance of more than 1,500 EV experts and approximately 250 companies. LG Electronics, in conjunction with its sister companies LG Energy Solution, LG Innotek and LG Display, is presenting an array of cutting-edge technologies across key areas of innovation. These range from core EV parts and systems to safe and efficient batteries and chargers. With its diverse portfolio of interrelated and complementary solutions, LG aims to play a significant role in driving the future of mobility.
      Visitors to LG’s booth at EVS37 will have the opportunity to see the company’s premium in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) system. Employing plastic-OLED (P-OLED) display technology, LG’s system seamlessly unites three displays – an instrument panel, center information display (CID) and co-driver display (CDD) – to create a futuristic and elegantly curved panoramic screen. The much-in-demand system, which also incorporates LG’s exclusive curved glass molding, surface treatment and display bonding technologies, can already be found in a premium EV model from one of world’s top automakers.
      LG is also introducing its Automotive Content Platform (ACP) powered by webOS. Designed to elevate the in-vehicle experience, the new platform enables front and backseat passengers to enjoy high-quality video, game and music content while travelling to their destination. Based on the acclaimed webOS platform for LG Smart TV and tailored for in-vehicle use, the ACP powered by webOS offers easy access to a variety of popular OTT apps as well as convenient control and personalized content recommendations. Launched at the end of last year, the LG ACP was initially integrated into Hyundai Motor and Kia’s new Genesis GV80 and GV80 Coupe.
      LG Magna e-Powertrain, a joint venture between LG and Magna, is showcasing its innovative products to the public for the first time at EVS37. Among its offerings are an 800V high-speed hairpin motor capable of producing a 250kW output, an 800V SiC inverter that controls motor with electric energy from the battery and an 800V IPGM drive system integrating a motor, inverter and gearbox.
      As part of the lecture and discussion series taking place at EVS37, LG will present its insights into the challenges of realizing the software-defined vehicle (SDV) – and introduce its technological solutions for overcoming them. Among the scheduled speakers are research fellows from the R&D laboratory at the LG Vehicle component Solutions Company Hong Hyun-taek, Park Young-kyung and software business leader Lee Jun-nyung. Additionally, LG’s R&D experts will demonstrate how the company is developing vehicle-interior sensing technology that will enhance the overall SDV user experience.
      “A recognized leader in advanced vehicle components, LG is excited to unveil its flagship solutions to the public, and share its considerable insight at EVS in Seoul,” said Lee Sang-yong, senior vice president of the R&D laboratory at LG Vehicle component Solutions Company. “Through our cutting-edge technologies, and via strategic collaboration with affiliates and industry partners, we will continue to meet the needs and exceed the expectations of OEMs and end-users.”

      Another unwanted update, bringing unwanted changes and now my Cambridge Audio soundbar is screwed.
      My LG TV just performed an auto update to WebOS 13.30.56. When the TV restarted, all I now get out of the ARC connection is a constant loud buzzing, no programme audio. Well done LG software team. A triumph! 
      I have tried resetting the soundbar (it plays fine if I plug in an external device) but all I get from the LG TV is BUZZZZZZZ. I tried restarting both the TV and the Soundbar: BUZZZZZZZZZ. I tried a new HDMI cable BUZZZZZZZZ. So what do I do now?? I did not want this OS update, it brings nothing to me and everything was working perfectly before the update and sound on the (awful) inbuilt LG TV speakers is working, but the ARC audio output to my rather lovely Cambridge Audio soundbar is now, since the Web OS update, just a constant BUZZZZZZZ. I decided to try the Optical output of the LG connected to the soundbar instead. The soundbar is flashing "AUDIO ERROR" at me (I have tried all of the different audio output format options, all with the same result).
      It really pi$$es me off when software teams release badly executed updates that break their customers devices. We are not your R&D test department LG, we are paying customers with whom you lose trust, brand loyalty and future sales when poor engineering teams release software updates that are not fully tested. God only knows what LG have done here but after 2 hours of trying to resolve an issue THEY caused on my setup, I have given up.
      Has anyone else had this issue and have suggestions please? I have tried to contact LG using their Email Support function, wading through the multiple layers to get to the right page and spending time typing up all the details of my support request, etc, but no response yet (other than the automated bot stuff).
      Thanks.

      Since taking the helm as LG’s CEO at the end of 2021, William Cho has been a strong proponent of transparency, especially in nurturing relationships and open communication within the company’s workforce. This dedication to honest conversation inspired Mr. Cho to launch the ‘CEO F.U.N. Talk’ series, a forum for him to interact with LG employees on critical topics and the company’s future direction. The first CEO F.U.N. Talk of 2024, held on April 15, focused on ‘leadership,’ a vital component in the corporate sphere that merits regular discussion. Leadership was also the central theme at the first CEO F.U.N. Talk of 2023.

      As LG aims to transform into a high-performance organization capable of consistent growth, CEO Cho underscores the need for employees to demonstrate “a sense of leadership.” Prior to this month’s talk, Mr. Cho conducted a survey to understand employees’ views of a high-performance organization and its implications for LG. “A high-performance organization is one that persistently pursues excellence to deliver outstanding results and promotes mutual growth between the company and its employees,” stated CEO Cho. He further explained that a passion for continuous learning, goal setting and skill development are essential.

      Furthermore, to surpass competitors, LG must provide customers with unique experiences and significant value, thereby creating a unique competitive advantage. Mr. Cho highlighted how effective leadership at all levels drives high performance and successful organizational transformation. “The power of a participatory organizational culture amplifies when each member displays leadership and adheres to the A.C.E. principles,” he said.

      CEO Cho’s A.C.E. principles include: ‘Aim for Clarity’ by setting measurable goals, breaking them down into stages and presenting clear results; ‘Conduct with Agility’ to quickly identify key issues and foster a productive work environment while also prioritizing tasks effectively; and ‘Excellence in Process’ – encouraging employees to actively define their roles and responsibilities, enhance collaboration with stakeholders, meticulously analyze all processes and allocate resources appropriately.
      Mr. Cho also stressed the significance of the right leadership mindset. He asserted, “Strong willpower and persistence, rather than talent or intelligence, are crucial for achieving your dreams.” He added that every employee should not only lead their own change but also guide others in the broader transformation of LG into a high-performance organization.
      Mr. Cho further highlighted organizational culture as a cornerstone for the company’s future growth and evolution. A positive and empowering corporate culture requires an environment where employees can enjoy their work and have the flexibility to change the way that they work to grow and reach their full potential. In line with this, ‘REINVENT LG’ encourages all LG employees to collaborate and innovate. Initially launched to foster a healthy organizational culture, REINVENT LG has extended to the company’s entire value chain and has become a catalyst for ‘high-performance’ management innovation.

      Wrapping up the talk, CEO Cho outlined three focal points: ‘Product,’ encompassing business models and strategies associated with LG’s products and services; ‘Process,’ denoting the company’s operational methods; and ‘People,’ emphasizing the enhancement of employees’ skills. By focusing on these pivotal areas and applying its management and leadership principles, LG anticipates short-term improvements in sales and operating profit, and long-term enhancements in its business portfolio and corporate value.
      In relation to ‘Product,’ Mr. Cho highlighted how LG is mitigating the impacts of a sluggish global economy by concentrating on its subscription business. This new business model has proven successful despite a decrease in demand in the home appliance market. Discussing ‘Process,’ he expanded on ‘Affectionate Intelligence,’ LG’s AI solution crafted from customer experience data, and explored various AI applications. In the ‘People’ segment, the CEO introduced several systematic training programs and support initiatives that LG is currently implementing.
      The tenth CEO F.U.N. Talk took place at LG Twin Tower in Seoul, South Korea, and was attended by over 10,000 employees. Throughout 2024, CEO Cho plans to engage and communicate with more LG employees by extending the program to other business locations in Korea, including Changwon, Pyeongtaek and Gumi.
