#CyberHeadlines – Driverless Cars Security Standards

Driverless Cars and IoT Cybersecurity

Self-driving cars are getting closer and closer to a common reality. It’s estimated that 3/4 of new cars released by 2020 will have self-driving capabilities. Uber has already begun utilizing driverless cars in Pittsburgh, PA and, especially with this recent Mirai attack occurring, this can be a scary thought for anyone concerned with IoT (internet of things) cybersecurity. And just like most cybersecurity concerns, it likely won’t be addressed to capacity until it’s already too late.

Some are prioritizing, and seeing the benefits in, preemptive measures, however. Recently, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) issued the Cybersecurity Best Practices for Modern Vehicles guide. This guide is a 22 page PDF. The PDF covers the Layered Approach to information security, vehicle development processes, and many more fundamental preventative measures. It also goes over the leadership priorities surrounding vulnerability reporting, self-auditing and control vehicle maintenance. With the incredible innovation we’re seeing in tech, and specifically IoT, security measures are detrimental to our physical and financial well-beings. We hope that these efforts spearhead a trend for more preemptive cybersecurity measures and testing, being released, before we mindlessly jump in to new, unsecure technologies that could be detrimental to public safety, such as driverless cars and planes.
