9:00 AM Keynote: Securing Vehicles of The Future: Privacy, Cyber Security, and Product Liability

The rapid technological development of connected and autonomous vehicles requires fresh and constant attention to physical and cyber security.  We will explore the future design and development of cyber security elements within vehicles of the future and discuss the corresponding legal considerations.  With the lack of special legislation, courts look to traditional legal principles to apply to these increasingly complex issues.  This session will focus on how the fundamental liability principles would apply to a crash involving vehicles of the future.
