How to implement multi-layered cyber security over the vehicle lifespan

With an increasingly demanding regulatory environment, automotive cyber security has become a primary requirement for carmakers. Connected vehicles are outpacing growth in mobile phones and tablets. While connectivity can increase road safety and improve the driver’s experience, the more vehicles become connected, the more vulnerable they are to cyber attacks.

Cyber attacks threaten all cars and commercial vehicles equipped with embedded or aftermarket connectivity, placing the safety and privacy of motorists, passengers and pedestrians at risk.

According to Automotive World, by 2020 virtually all new vehicles will have at least one embedded, connected device and there will be over 200 million connected vehicles on the road.

Vehicle manufacturers need to address new digital business models that improve safety and security and meet changing consumer demands for advanced services.

In this speech, the audience will hear how to apply multi-layered, end-to-end protection against cyber attacks over the entire lifecycle of a vehicle, or a fleet, to minimize the risk of an attack and the damage when an attack occurs

“It’s not a question of if our industry will see a serious cyber incident but when” Jeff Massimilla, Chief Product Cybersecurity Officer, GM (FTC – NHTSA meeting 2017/6/28)
