Protect the IT of your Truck

With the move towards connected vehicles, the truck industry has to handle new challenges and risks. Our international conference “Autonomous Trucks” discusses latest trends in this area. In addition to the conference, our international workshop “IT Security for Connected/ Autonomous Trucks“ focuses on important developments in the area of commercial vehicle IT security.

Besides tangible protection devices, IT security becomes increasingly important. It has been shown that hackers can access the IT of vehicles and manipulate them. During the workshop you will learn more about security requirements, data protection, authentication, signature and other key issues.
