11:15 AM Keynote Panel Session: Regulatory Standards Update & Future Preparations for Automotive Cybersecurity
With the growing concern for cybersecurity safety among OEM’s, best practices, standards, and frameworks created by the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration), NIST (National Institute of Standards Technology), ISO (International Organization for Standardization), SAE International, Auto-ISAC (Automotive Information sharing and analysis center) and others form best practices to undertake as a manufacturer. With the recommendations from the above coupled with federal regulations forming from the U.S Department of Transportation and the Federal Trade Commission there is much discussion to take place regarding appropriate safety features and standards. Join this panel to hear discussions and best practice guidance on regulatory approaches, connected car data uses and sharing, cybersecurity issues, privacy issues and the road ahead for manufacturers, innovators and regulators staying within the same lane.
· Enforcing consumer protection standards and regulations
· Working with stakeholders to ensure innovation does not intrude consumer privacy
· Enhancing constant communication between government agencies, security experts, trade associations and stakeholders to craft guidance and self-imposed industry standards
· Sharing data on cybersecurity threats and balancing the industry vs. regulatory involvement of standards and guidance
With the copious amounts of data being produced from the increase in connected cars on the road, the automotive industry must collaborate to maximize business potential, accelerate the pace of innovation, and save consumer lives on the road.
• Developing relationships with OEM’s and Stakeholders to enhance the speed of innovation and increase consumer safety
• Assessing safety improvements from city infrastructure and car manufacturers to reduce the number of car fatalities, accidents, and cyber hacks
• Discussing out of industry models for cyber security that can be directly applied to the automotive industry
• Analyzing data generation of connected and future vehicles to boost future of autonomy business models
