ATIS Advances Connected Vehicle Cybersecurity Through Industry-To-Industry Collaboration

Connected and self-driving vehicles bring consumers unprecedented new options, yet the risks of cyber intrusion are significant. The new ATIS report takes a closer look at connected vehicle cybersecurity.

ATIS recently released a new report, “Improving Vehicle Cybersecurity: ICT Industry Experience & Perspectives,” which takes a closer look at connected vehicle cybersecurity. The company says cyber security is vitally important to the future of automated vehicles. Both the information and communications technology (ICT) industry and vehicle OEMS are proactively addressing cybersecurity challenges. This new ATIS resource translates the ICT industry’s experience in continually improving security in networks and devices to enhance security in the connected vehicle ecosystem.

“The network reaches into new frontiers as it provides vehicle connectivity for advanced applications and data collection,” said ATIS President and CEO Susan Miller. “This new report positions both the ICT industry and vehicle OEMs to work collaboratively to secure the network and block cyber attacks or malware events. ATIS believes that the connected vehicle’s potential will be maximized through this industry-to-industry collaboration.”

Connected and self-driving vehicles bring consumers unprecedented new options, yet the risks of cyber intrusion are significant. Dangers range from access to the owner’s, driver’s or passenger’s personal and financial information to outright loss of physical control of the vehicle. Cybersecurity breaches also can damage consumer trust in both industries.

Addressing both security and trust goals, a collaborative approach to these problems is a win for both industries. Moving forward, improved dialog and continued collaboration also will serve to foster traffic safety, complement smart cities initiatives, improve vehicle reliability and enhance overall customer experience in a new world of vehicles connected through the telecommunications network.

“Connected vehicle security requires an ecosystem of end-to-end players to address security threats. Telecommunications carriers play a critical role, but we can’t do it alone. This white paper shows how our industry and automobile manufacturers can work together to provide the most secure solutions possible for connected vehicles,” said Cameron Coursey, vice president, Internet of Things Solutions, AT&T.

“TELUS is pleased to take part in this important effort; working collaboratively with our telecom peers and vehicle OEMs with a common goal of improving cyber security and safety for connected vehicles,” said Carey Frey, chief security officer, TELUS. “At TELUS, we believe that a collaborative cross-industry approach that consistently improves on a ‘Secure-by-Design’ model is imperative to safely and securely accelerating innovation in the connected-vehicle ecosystem.”

ATIS’ Connected Car Cyber Security Ad Hoc Group is chaired by Tom Gage, CEO and managing director of Marconi Pacific. Participating companies include AT&T, Bell Canada, Blackberry, CenturyLink, Cisco, Cox, Ericsson, Huawei, Marconi-Pacific, Nokia, Oracle, Sprint, TELUS and Viavi Solutions.
