Cyber Security for Connected Cars
As the world becomes increasingly connected, everything is becoming smarter and this now includes automobiles. Reliable connectivity helps make telematics, navigation, weather, traffic and parking information, data analytics, enhanced entertainment and communication systems possible and allows for time spent inside a vehicle to be more productive. Autonomous vehicles are disrupting the automobile market, with updates and patches happening weekly to keep systems running and updated. However, all this increased connectivity presents significant challenges for car manufacturers to make vehicles that are not only reliable, desirable but more importantly safe and secure. Car manufacturers need to address cyber security for connected cars from the start at design stage, rather than patching extremely dangerous security issues as they arise.
Our trusted team of cyber security specialists can help identify possible threats to brand reputation, set achievable targets, test the strength of systems and implement cost-effective security solutions.
As an increasing amount of cars become connected and autonomous, the risk and potential impact of a cyber-attack is ever increasing. Hackers have the potential to compromise a large number of vehicles with a single targeted attack. One of the biggest threats is the risk of hackers gaining control of vehicles and causing accidents or even bringing entire cities to a standstill.
“Infosec Partners provide a holistic approach to connected cars and their cyber security, that includes penetration testing, detailed threat modelling and cyber security risk assessments. We provide a number of tailored services to car manufacturers, private individuals, enterprise fleet managers, law enforcement, insurance companies and their underwriters.”
