Driverless vehicles: a hacker's delight?

11 September 2017

The commercial pressure of being first-to-market means those writing software code for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAVs) are potentially exposed to unrealistic deadlines when it comes to ensuring cyber resilience for their products, potentially attracting malicious hackers.

Our latest white paper, Connected and Autonomous Vehicles: a hacker's delight?, launches today and discusses how the motor industry and law makers need to work together to react to the increased importance of all-things-cyber.

A month on from the UK Government publishing its guidelines for cyber security in CAVs, experts are calling for more manufacturer collaboration on this issue in our report, which asks if it is possible, or even feasible, to make these new vehicles cyber resilient.
