Consequences and safety solutions

Potential cyber security threats of autonomous and connected vehicles

"As autonomous mobility advances, our cars will increasingly connect with each other and surrounding infrastructure and networks. This will have a positive impact on safety but also introduce new security-related vulnerabilities in the automotive sector that require a holistic approach. TÜV SÜD is therefore developing methods for assessing safety and security and introducing these methods into the regulation landscape."

Infographic: Potential cyber security threats of autonomous and connected vehicles

While autonomous and connected vehicles will improve traffic flow and safety, they also represent a new target for cyber criminality. The growing variety of software and communication interfaces is increasing both complexity and connectivity, making future cars significantly more vulnerable to hacker attacks. Any compromise of security could result in a loss of data privacy, and negatively impact car safety or even cause accidents. Both appropriate safety measures, and effective and robust cyber security solutions are therefore essential.
