The connected car has rapidly moved from the realms of sci-fi to reality. Drivers are synching smartphones and other Wi-Fi, Bluetooth-enabled to in-car infotainment systems, and cars themselves have sophisticated safety and engine systems that communicate with the diagnostics heart of a vehicle. With greater connectivity comes greater risk of the chances of hackers breaking into a vehicle’s systems. Today, cybersecurity for vehicles is of paramount importance to automotive manufacturers.

“Cyberproofing the electronic control unit (ECU)-loaded, modern-day smartphone on wheels is crucial for OEMs who are gearing up to introduce level two and three automation and connected features,” said Frost & Sullivan Automotive & Transportation Research Manger Praveen Chandrasekar. “Besides protecting the consumer, this is crucial for the auto industry to protect its brand and intellectual property.”

“The auto industry needs to acknowledge the increasing risk of security, get into the first phases of the gap and threat analysis and then benchmark itself with more complicated giants like the aviation space. The rest is all about working with IT and cybersecurity specialists to use their expertise,” states Chandrasekar.

About Automotive Industries

Today’s carmakers and their systems suppliers are constantly looking for new innovations and cost savings opportunities in today’s challenging but exciting market for car makers.

Automotive Industries (AI) is the world’s oldest continually published trade publication covering the automaking business. It was founded in November 1895 as “The Horseless Age,” the first magazine created to cover the world’s transition from horse-drawn conveyances to those powered by the new internal combustion engine. The magazine changed its name to “The Automobile” in July 1909, an era when gasoline, steam and electricity all vied for preeminence in motive power.

The magazine’s present name was established in November 1917. The title was briefly amended to “Automotive and Aviation Industries” during the World War II years, as the magazine expanded its coverage of technologies and production methods to include the aircraft industry, in which many automakers participated.

Automotive Industries is devoted to providing a global coverage on all aspects of the automobile marketplace, with an emphasis on the people, products and processes that shape the industry. Automotive Industries provides more than 18,000 manufacturers and suppliers with in-depth news, information, insight and analysis on the global events that affect the auto industry.
