At the 88th Geneva International Motor Show, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) along with the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) organized the Symposium on the Future Networked Car to advance innovations in self-driving cars, intelligent transport systems and all things driving the development of connected cars.
ITU News talked with Dvir Reznik, Senior Marketing Manager, Automotive Cybersecurity at Harman, a global leader in connected car solutions currently working on end-to-end security for the future networked car, to discuss the top trends in the industry and what is needed to ensure the security of autonomous cars and the safety of their passengers.
In the discussions on “Cybersecurity impact and outlook for automotive systems,” it was clear that safety and security concerns were key to moving the industry forward.
As we witness increased convergence between information communications technologies (ICTs) and the automotive sector, new security concerns are emerging such as car hacking and malware attacks. Panelists argued that auto makers and Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) must strengthen their security procedures and protocols in order for the industry keep pace with innovation.
