Upcoming SAE International webcast to explore cybersecurity risks and practices in the automotive industry

A new webcast from SAE International will discuss the mobility challenges faced by automotive engineers dealing with the daunting task of securing today’s automated and connected vehicles from cybersecurity attacks and risks.

The webcast will take place on Wednesday, March 20, 2019 from 10 a.m. PST / 1 p.m. EST. A primary focus of the webcast will involve experts discussing key findings from the report, “Securing the Modern Vehicle: A Study of Automotive Industry Cybersecurity Practices.”

The independent study, which was commissioned by SAE International and Synopsys, and conducted by Ponemon, revealed alarming facts about the current state of cybersecurity practices:

  • The automotive industry has insufficient cybersecurity resources and skills.
  • Some of those most knowledgeable about automotive cybersecurity feel powerless to voice their concerns.
  • Automotive cybersecurity testing may be occurring too late in the product development life cycle.

Speakers will include:

  • Larry Ponemon, Chairman and Founder, Ponemon Institute
  • Tim Weisenberger, Project Manager, Technical Programs, SAE International
  • Chris Clark, Principal Security Engineer, Strategic Initiatives, Synopsys, SIG
