On this episode of Security Nation, host Kyle Flaherty talks automotive hacking with Rob Barrett and Jack Vaughn of Underwriters Laboratories (UL), who are leading an initiative to help auto manufacturers and suppliers secure our more interconnected vehicles. The conversation ran the gamut from the impact of publicity-focused car hacking stunts to how we must invigorate the community to share these vulnerabilities so they can be fixed. Rob and Jack also hit on:
- The oncoming autonomous car craze and its impact on security ... are we ready?
- Why auto manufacturers differ in how they respond to these risks.
- How government regulation is driving parts of these programs.
- The evolution of some auto manufacturers into technology companies.
