Data Security in Connected Vehicles

Connectivity has worked its way very quickly into automotive language, and the potential benefits of connected vehicles are widespread. The notion of autonomous cars driving us around while communicating with the infrastructure and other vehicles is no longer a vision, but fast becoming a reality. With huge amounts of data being transferred both within the vehicle and to intelligent transport systems, security is of paramount concern.

Cyber Security Challenges: Focuses for 2019

New report from the Cyber Security Hub from a survey about the annual spend and trends in the cybersecurity industry. 

ISO 21434 Framework

A cybersecurity process framework will be defined by the standard, including a common language for communicating and managing cybersecurity risk among stakeholders. Important to note, however, is that the standard will not prescribe specific technical solutions related to cybersecurity because it must account for new threats and vulnerabilities that can arise. The new ISO/SAE 21434 guidelines are likely to be published in the summer of 2020.

The four key project groups within the new standard are: risk management; product development; production, operation and maintenance; and process overview and interdependencies.

Prioritizing Cybersecurity

With today’s connected vehicles containing such complex E/E architecture, cybersecurity must be considered across an array of interrelated systems and networks.

The cars of tomorrow - particularly autonomous vehicles - will provide a vast number of benefits to the consumer. However, with everything from steering to infotainment controlled by computers, the security vulnerabilities continue to multiply.

The blurring of the lines between transportation and software is one of the most pressing issues for the auto industry, and until now software security has not always kept pace with the development of new technology. As a result, connected vehicles have a range of unique cybersecurity issues which must be tackled with a holistic framework to mitigate the potential threat of cyberattacks through the entire vehicle lifecycle.

Protect The Key- Or Don't Bother Encrypting Your Data

While encryption solutions will change with time, the importance of protecting the key will never change. In fact, the more effective the encryption technology, the more the key needs protecting. Read this new whitepaper from nCipher for the latest evolution for encryption technology. 

Auto-ISAC on: Automotive Cyber Security Trends & Challenges to Watch in 2019

We sat down with Faye Francy, the Executive Director of Auto-ISAC, to discuss the latest trends in challenges in automotive cyber security. In her current role, Francy serves the global automotive industry through the analysis and sharing of trusted and timely cyber threat information about existing or potential cyber-related threats and vulnerabilities for on-road vehicle electronics and associated networks.

  • The role of artificial intelligence in automotive cyber security and how it will evolve over the next five years
  • The single most important challenge faced in today's environment
  • Best practices for greater collaboration and information sharing
  • And much more!

The Dangers of Connected Cars

As connectivity continues to steadily increase, connected and self-driving cars are becoming more at risk of being discovered and hacked. This video breaks down the top cyber security vulnerabilities that arise with connectivity. With 200 million connected cars estimated to be on the roads by 2020, cyber security is the topic you need to be thinking about right now.

Rolling Out the Next-Generation of Cybersecurity

The rapid adoption of connected vehicle technology and the trend towards autonomous driving has highlighted the issue of cybersecurity in the automotive industry. What does the future of protecting against existing and unknown threats look like?

Cyber Security Regulatory Challenges

The automotive industry is changing at a faster pace than ever before, propelled forward by advances in technology which break the traditional developmental cycle mold. Self-driving vehicles, electrification and connected services are driving rapid development and while new technologies offer exciting possibilities, the industry as a whole must counterbalance this potential with safety, security and economic stability.

The Autonomous Technology Transformation in the Automotive Industry

We surveyed 325+ global automotive leaders to identify where car manufacturers are on their journey towards autonomous, how they’re capitalizing on this opportunity for reinvention and the key challenges they’re facing as a result. This report aims to not only present a snapshot of the current state of autonomous, but also enable the development of a new set of industry benchmarks, best practices and innovative solutions.

8 Tips to Prevent Autonomous Vehicle Cyber Breach Liability

This article takes a look at how companies in the AV industry can best position themselves to avoid liability for a cyber breach.  The reality is that no matter how many steps are taken to prevent a breach, the threat cannot be entirely eliminated.  Even if every reasonable step is taken, malicious hacking or user negligence remain a threat.  

The Cyber Risks Associated with Connected Cars

Digital transformation is affecting every business sector, and the automotive industry is no exception. Thanks to innovative software engineers and auto manufacturers, smart, fully connected vehicles are coming to the streets, giving more freedom and comfort to their drivers. The largest cyber concern for connected cars is that once a cybercriminal gets their hands on your vehicle’s controls, they can disable the car's brakes to cause a crash. Or they can activate the vehicle’s microphone to listen to your conversations and turn off the car’s security mechanisms to steal it. To learn about the other cyber risks, download the article.
