Cars are now another connected device among many, as drivers of today's vehicles do everything from access data stored on cell phones to plan a route on GPS, while a network of computer sensors controls a host of critical features. Yet as vehicles become digitized, questions about safety and security are only likely to increase.
There are not yet clear standards around cybersecurity and privacy in cars, yet there are a number of vulnerabilities that cars present, ranging from sensors to cell phone connections. A lengthy product life cycle -- cars can be in use for as long as 10 to 15 years, with multiple owners -- makes things even more challenging. This infographic presents the cybersecurity and privacy challenges and possible solutions in today's ever-more connected car.
