Cyber security is a growing concern in the auto industry. There are all kinds of cyber-attacks that aren’t getting talked about publically. But it’s not enough to just protect cars from hackers, automakers must look at their entire operation. However, the auto industry can’t do it alone, it must seek out the help of experts. There are lessons for the industry to learn from the military and vice versa. On Autoline This Week, John McElroy is joined by members of the auto industry, military and the tech world for a dive into cyber security.

    I have to agree with Venki…cyber security is important and your panel discussion was enlightening. In my early career, I was a Certified Information Technology Auditor working in the financial services industry where cyber security issues and controls were in their infancy. It is great to see that the auto industry (i.e. GM), the military establishment and third parties are focusing on the cyber threats in an organized and fruitful way. For me, those cyber safeguards built into my vehicles are just as important as the airbags and seat belts. Thanks for a great show, John.
