All these have one thing in common: they are producing extremely large amounts of data which needs to be processed in the backend by very powerful computers. When we talk connectivity, we MUST talk about cybersecurity.   This is why the Automotive industry has started to take this very seriously: We have the  ISO/SAE AWI 21434 : Road Vehicles — Cybersecurity engineering which is in the preparation stage We have the European Automobile Manufacturers’ Association (ACEA) who have released the “Principles of Automobile Cybersecurity“ ACEA represents currently the 15 Europe-based car, van, truck and bus manufacturers (Source): BMW Group, DAF Trucks, Daimler, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Ford of Europe, Hyundai Motor Europe, Iveco, Jaguar Land Rover, Opel Group, PSA Group, Renault Group, Toyota Motor Europe, Volkswagen Group, Volvo Cars, and Volvo Group ACEA and its members have identified a set of six key principles to enhance the protection of connected and automated vehicles against cyber threats. 1. Cultivating a cybersecurity culture 2. Adopting a cybersecurity life cycle for vehicle development 3. Assessing security functions through testing phases: self-auditing & testing 4. Managing a…
