Support the Next Generation of Cyber Auto Engineers
NHTSA released its Cybersecurity Best Practices for Modern Vehicles that provided nonbinding guidance to the automotive industry for improving motor vehicle cybersecurity. An educated workforce is listed as a critical success factor securing increasingly complex vehicle technology. The NHTSA recognizes the role programs, such as SAE International’s CyberAuto Challenge play in closing the automotive cybersecurity skills gap.
In remarks before the U.S. Congress, the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers cited the CyberAuto Challenge as one of three key events the industry attends to understand cybersecurity for every corner of the industry, including researchers, ethical hackers, government officials, manufacturers, educators, and students.
As a sponsor of the CyberAuto Challenge, your support creates an immersive environment for learning about cybersecurity and to help shape the future cyber-auto workforce. Sponsorships enable students of all economic levels to participate by offsetting expenses associated with accommodations, meals, transportation, learning materials, hardware kits, and other tools necessary to participate in the Challenge. Engineers from sponsors lead teams, serve as technical experts to teach on-site courses, and lend financial support.
Don't miss this opportunity to invest in the future of the cyber-auto industry. Join the Challenge in igniting the interest in the automotive industry among "cyber-centered" college and high school students and forge the next generation of cyber-auto engineers.
