Cars are becoming our most expensive computers

In today’s vehicles, technology is developing quickly and software is controlling many applications already. Often the inside of cars such as brakes or infotainment systems are by now connected to the internet which enables new options to OEMs, suppliers and customers. All these connected features and innovative technologies turn our cars into high-end expensive computers. At the same time these new opportunities create major IT security risks potentially exploited by terrorists and hackers pushing OEMs and suppliers to their limits.
For this reason the automotive industry as well as IT specialists and innovative startups should exchange information on major trends and important topics.

It is important to figure out how cyber-attacks can be prevented and drivers kept safe. Furthermore topics such as Over-the-air updates do not remain Tesla-focused only. As discussed in a specific panel discussion at our last IT Security for Vehicles conference, OTA has started to play an important role in the automotive industry and will develop even further. Besides privacy and data protection have high priority for OEMs and their customers. This variety of important topics shows that it is time for the next international VDI conference IT Security for Vehicles 2017 and for an ongoing discussion on current trend issues.
