Howell Comments on Cybersecurity Concerns with Connected Cars

14 March 2018 The Daily Report News

Partner Chanley Howell was quoted in a The Daily Report article, “Hi-Tech Cars Could Lead to More Cybersecurity Issues,” about the increased concerns about cybersecurity with the rise of connected cars, and what is needed for a connected-car cybersecurity program to be effective.

“Cars today are sophisticated computers on wheels and are part of a complex information technology environment,” Howell said. “With significant advances in smartphone car connectivity and onboard infotainment systems, our cars are collecting more and more information about our daily lives and personal interactions. As a result, privacy and security concerns about connected cars have evolved and have quickly risen in the last year to become a top priority of carmakers and suppliers.”

Howell also said, “Data security practices evolve over time, and the days of building a system first and then layering security on top are now over. A comprehensive and holistic approach is essential to an effective connected car cybersecurity program.”

Foley & Lardner LLP’s 2018 Connected Cars & Autonomous Vehicles Survey and Top Legal Issues Facing the Automotive Industry in 2018 white paper was also cited throughout the article.
