New SAE International Webcast Will Explore Cybersecurity Risks and Practices in the Automotive Industry

Today’s vehicle is a connected, mobile computer, a situation that has introduced an issue the automotive industry has limited experience dealing with: cybersecurity risk. A new webcast from SAE International will discuss the challenges these risks pose.

On Wednesday, March 20, 2019 from 10 a.m. PST / 1 p.m. EST, experts will discuss key findings from the report, “Securing the Modern Vehicle: A Study of Automotive Industry Cybersecurity Practices.”

The independent study, which was commissioned by SAE International and Synopsys, and conducted by Ponemon, indicates that:
  • The automotive industry has insufficient cybersecurity resources and skills.
  • Some of those most knowledgeable about automotive cybersecurity feel powerless to voice their concerns.
  • Automotive cybersecurity testing may be occurring too late in the product development life cycle.

Speakers will include:
  • Larry Ponemon, Chairman and Founder, Ponemon Institute
  • Tim Weisenberger, Project Manager, Technical Programs, SAE International
  • Chris Clark, Principal Security Engineer, Strategic Initiatives, Synopsys, SIG
