ATIS Releases Vehicle Cybersecurity Report
Thursday, August 10, 2017 | Comments

The Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS) released a new report called “Improving Vehicle Cybersecurity: ICT Industry Experience & Perspectives.”

Cybersecurity is important to the future of automated vehicles. The information and communications technology (ICT) industry and vehicle OEMs are proactively addressing cybersecurity challenges. The new resource translates the ICT industry’s extensive experience in continually improving security in networks and devices to enhance security in the connected vehicle ecosystem.

“The network reaches into new frontiers as it provides vehicle connectivity for advanced applications and data collection,” noted ATIS President and CEO Susan Miller. “This new report positions both the ICT industry and vehicle OEMs to work collaboratively to secure the network and block cyber attacks or malware events. ATIS believes that the connected vehicle’s potential will be maximized through this industry-to-industry collaboration.”

Connected and self-driving vehicles bring consumers unprecedented new options, yet the risks of cyber intrusion are significant. Dangers range from access to the owner’s, driver’s or passenger’s personal and financial information to outright loss of physical control of the vehicle. Cybersecurity breaches can also damage consumer trust in both industries.

Addressing both security and trust goals, a collaborative approach to these problems is a win for both industries. Moving forward, improved dialog and continued collaboration will also serve to foster traffic safety, complement smart cities initiatives, improve vehicle reliability and enhance overall customer experience in a new world of vehicles connected through the telecommunications network.

The report is here.
