Security and the Connected Vehicle

Today's vehicles have effectively become computers on wheels: from navigation systems to infotainment to HMI (human-machine interface). To date, these technologies have helped to improve the overall experience of driving in many ways. But are security protocols being properly considered in implementing such technologies? Are these systems built to last in today's high-threat cyber environments? What is the mobility sector doing to secure transportation today and tomorrow? How do smart cities and government regulations impact these connected vehicles?

Space Technology for a Smart and Resilient Arctic
