SAE International/IEEE CyberSecurity for the Transportation Industry Meeting

WARRENDALE, Pa., July 29, 2013 - SAE international has paired with IEEE to develop the CyberSecurity for the Transportation Industry Meeting that will be held on September 23 at the Palais des congrés de Montréal in Montreal, Quebec.

This one-day technical symposium will address critical issues surrounding the security in the the networking of current and future vehicles.  No particular style of vehicle will be discussed, as this broad spectrum covers anything from manned to unmanned vehicles, whether they move on land or in the air.

The CyberSecurity for the Transportation Industry Meeting will be attended by academic experts and leaders in the cybersecurity industry, which, paired with skilled members of the automotive, aerospace, rail, and commercial vehicle industries will undoubtedly improve and solve issues that are plaguing each of the industries.

The meeting will seek to address many issues, but there are a few primary issues that will be discussed.  First and foremost, many are concerned with the legitimacy of cybersecurity risks and how to decipher between real and fictitious threats.  Naturally, companies are concerned about the pertinence of cybersecurity on their own products or services.  And, taking it a bit further, the conference will discuss the common cybersecurity issues that intersect between industries.

The importance of addressing these issues has never been more important due to the recent growth in cyber threats in transportation.  This has caused concern for both stakeholders and consumers, which makes it a pressing matter for the entire market.
