"In transportation, they do not historically discuss cyber risks openly," notes Ms. Krayem. "I do think we're at a point where it's perfectly fine to have a conversation, because it's an overall risk that everybody knows."
As autonomous transportation also enters this conversation, it presents another risk that automakers need to understand and be prepared to handle, even if it is years in the future.
Ms. Krayem comments, "That future does require a safety-centric focus, and though we're many years off from full artificial intelligence and full autonomy, the pro here is that they can build autonomous vehicles under security-by-design principles. They can bake in cybersecurity protection now, and not bolt it on after the fact."
