On the Road to Connectivity
Silicon Valley tech companies and vehicle manufacturing powerhouses are moving ahead with plans to develop autonomous vehicles. But the world is a long way from the self-driving car revolution.
Instead, the automotive industry is in the midst of a connected vehicle transformation that has major ramifications for security. In its 2021 Automotive Cybersecurity Report, Upstream Security projected that connected vehicles will comprise nearly 86 percent of the global automotive market by 2025. In its 2022 report, the company doubled down, analyzing hundreds of publicly reported incidents of connected vehicle compromise—many carried out without physical access to a vehicle—to build a more comprehensive picture of this emerging and dynamic threat.
Perimeter security breaches have evolved beyond intruders on the ground. To respond to new aerial risks, numerous Counter Unmanned Aerial System (C-UAS) strategies have arisen to bolster perimeter intrusion detection systems.
When you consider the reliability, changed business models, and cost-benefit, the move to robotic devices is inevitable for more reliable service and to free up humans to focus on more complex tasks.
In the security compliance space, automation can also be a means to level the playing field when it comes to accessing the best cybersecurity for businesses of all sizes.
As we innovate, we need to consider the countermeasures for these threats and the unintended consequences the technology might create. We also need to consider how the security industry might change in response to both.
Human-centered robot designs introduce new and advanced functionality with superior human-to-robot experience potential. The design is intended to facilitate interaction between people and the robot—and help people feel more at ease engaging with the device.
Drones are being adopted by a variety of actors, including malicious ones. New efforts from INTERPOL and its partners are attempting to standardize the technology used to mitigate unmanned aerial vehicle threats.
Security Management Research is conducting a survey to understand how security systems integrate with other systems and the potential value those integrations bring to an organization.
