Connected Vehicles: One Security Point on A Vast Data Network

The buzz: “Open sesame!” (Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, 1704)

The Networked Economy is a complex organism with dependencies and connections among virtually all “Things”, especially in the connected/autonomous vehicle arena.

Reality check: Any connection between / among cars, manufacturers, production assets, the transportation infrastructure, service providers, data aggregators, and drivers’/passengers’ personal devices can become an entry point for malicious activity that puts all participants in the entire network at risk.

What role do we play in security?

The experts speak.

Sean Pike, IDC: “That’s not the point. The point is, who will stop me?” (Ayn Rand, The Fountainhead, Chapter 1, p. 17, the Dean and Howard Roark)

Otto Schell, GM: “Neither fraud, nor deceit nor malice has yet interfered with truth and plain dealing.” (Don Quixote)

Larry Stolle, SAP: “There are risks and costs to a program of action. But they are far less than the long-range risks and costs of comfortable inaction.” (John F. Kennedy)
