It is a long-term investment in cyber security to make vehicles and their ecosystem more secure.”No partners yet mentionedVolkswagen didn’t provide a list of manufacturers it has partnered with to deploy the cybersecurity solutions. For now, it looks like Volkswagen and possibly Porsche will be the only customers.“The new cooperation will take an innovative and strategic approach to cyber security,” said Yuval Diskin, former head of the Israeli Security Services. ”Together with Volkswagen we are building a top-notch team of cyber security experts. We are aware of the significant technological challenges that will face us in the next years in dealing with the cyber security threats facing the connected car and the development of the autonomous car.” David Curry Related Posts What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Follow the Puckcenter_img Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Tags:#autonomous cars#cybersecurity#Internet of Things#IoT#Self-Driving#Volkswagen How Myia Health’s Partnership with Mercy Virtua…last_img read more
