May it be any sector, modernization, automation, and advancements, open the doors for new complications and create loopholes. Same is the case with the automotive industry in the U.S., as far as smart automobiles are concerned. Since the past few years, there has been an increase in the number of hackers who gained remote access to the websites of car models of brands such as Jeep, Toyota, BMW, Land Rover, Chrysler, and General Motors. The hackers targeted car models, which were manufactured in 2013 and later. The main concern for the automobile brands is that the new cars featured with explicit security systems will be launched in coming few years.
Gartner, one of the information technology advisory and research company recently stated that one in five cars will feature wireless technology network connection by 2020. This is expected to amount to above 250 mn automobile connections. In connection with this issue, Intel lately announced the creation of Automotive Security Review Board (ASRB) that aims to address any kind of cyber-security issues related to automobiles and ways to reduce them. Intel further stated that the board will feature specific talents to perform continuous security inspections and tests. With this, vehicle design recommendations, and practices can be decided for upcoming cars.
The Automotive Security Review Board (ASRB) will help in controlling and reducing cybercrime by offering quality cyber-security solutions and relevant products. Chris Young, the Senior Vice President and General Manager of Intel said that the bar for cyber-attacks in automobiles should be raised. Through ASRB, Intel is planning to establish best practices for automotive security. Cyber-security should be a mandate feature in every new design of every connected vehicle, stated Chris Young. ASRB will receive support from the semiconductor chip manufacturer who pledges to provide automotive advanced development platforms to facilitate research.
