The Original Equipment Suppliers Association (OESA) has partnered with Foley & Lardner LLP and Bain & Company, Inc. to host a virtual “Mobility Supplier Forum” on October 13, 2020 from 1:00 – 3:30 p.m. ET. The Mobility Supplier Forum typically meets quarterly in California’s “Silicon Valley” area and is intended to help automotive suppliers advance their business interests in connected and transformative technologies. Each meeting features insights from leading industry experts on issues of common concern for automotive suppliers.
Mike Overly, Partner, and Vanessa Miller, Partner, Foley & Lardner, will explore the emerging cybersecurity trends, regulations, and risk mitigation for liability as they impact the development of connected mobility technology. Beyond issues related to the development and launch of a particular component, they will cover integration considerations as components are incorporated into broader assemblies and vehicles. They will share their experiences working with automotive suppliers and other manufacturers as well as lessons learned through real-world issues, including how to navigate regulatory hurdles, risk mitigation, and best practices for litigation avoidance.
Tom Wendt, Partner, and Mark Gottfredson, Partner, Bain & Company, will share an insightful perspective from Silicon Valley. They will explore how trends, funding and the start-up landscape around autonomous, connected, electric and shared mobility concepts is changing, emphasizing the importance of external innovation for suppliers to complement existing innovation activities. They will also share lessons learned and key success factors of corporate innovation approaches and share a unique model based on partnering and eco-system collaboration to de-risk early stage innovation and later M&A.
Key Forum takeaways include:
- Cybersecurity issues impacting the connected mobility industry
