Enhance cybersecurity awareness and survivability for DoD, industry partners, and academia in the face of the ever-increasing threat of cyber attacks. Cybersecurity (CS) includes managing risks related to the use, processing, storage, and transmission of information and the systems and processes used for those purposes, including analog and physical form. CS includes information availability, identification and authentication, confidentiality, integrity, and non-repudiation as well as the economic considerations with respect to selection of CS techniques, CS processes, and industry trends.
How Vulnerable is your car to cyberattacks?
According to new research from Michigan State University, there are “cracks in the current system” that can lead to future cyber risks. With more and more objects turning to technology, being connected to WiFi can become a concern. As it is a concern for the vehicle’s information, if a phone is plugged into a USB port, that could be another device that has the opportunity to be hacked. The risk of smart cars getting hacked doesn’t mean only getting their personal data. This could also result in making the driver cause an accident if the alert systems and the emergency brake sensory systems compromised. As of recently, the automotive and equipment manufacturers aren’t responsible for the central computer systems. It should start with the to ensure that the Smart Cars have more security to reduce hacking risks for their customers. However, this would consist of regular security updates such as for the smart phones. Thomas Holt, professor of criminal justice at MSU, believes that in the near future all vehicles will have smart capabilities.
