As shown in multiple high-profile attacks, connected automotive systems are an attractive target for malicious actors attempting to gain physical control of a vehicle. These systems serve as a gateway for attackers to access and compromise critical safety controls. Unfortunately, traditional information security practices developed for corporate environments are inadequate for the complexities of connected and autonomous vehicles. In this free 60-minute webinar, Dave Butler of Uber ATG and Stacy Janes of irdeto will discuss modern vehicles’ evolving attack surfaces and their connected ecosystems, how FASTR and its members think about security throughout the ecosystem, and the unique challenges presented by open source in vehicle components.
