Aug. 14, 2017—ATIS (Advancing ICT Industry Transformation) addressed connected vehicle cybersecurity in its new report, Improving Vehicle Cybersecurity: ICT Industry Experience & Perspectives

ATIS, a forum where the information and communications technology (ICT) companies convene to find solutions to their most pressing shared challenges, said cybersecurity is vitally important to the future of automated vehicles. Vehicle security may become a concern for the collision repair industry and its customers as telematics technology continues to advance.

The ICT industry and vehicle OEMs are addressing cybersecurity challenges. This new ATIS resource translates the ICT industry's extensive experience in continually improving security in networks and devices to enhance security in the connected vehicle ecosystem.

"The network reaches into new frontiers as it provides vehicle connectivity for advanced applications and data collection," noted ATIS president and CEO Susan Miller. "This new report positions both the ICT industry and vehicle OEMs to work collaboratively to secure the network and block cyber attacks or malware events. ATIS believes that the connected vehicle's potential will be maximized through this industry-to-industry collaboration."

Connected and self-driving vehicles bring consumers unprecedented new options, yet the risks of cyber intrusion are significant. Dangers range from access to the owner's, driver's or passenger's personal and financial information to outright loss of physical control of the vehicle. Cybersecurity breaches can also damage consumer trust in both industries.  

Addressing both security and trust goals, a collaborative approach to these problems is a win for both industries. Moving forward, improved dialog and continued collaboration will also serve to foster traffic safety, complement smart cities initiatives, improve vehicle reliability and enhance overall customer experience in a new world of vehicles connected through the telecommunications network.

"Connected vehicle security requires an ecosystem of end-to-end players to address security threats. Telecommunications carriers play a critical role. But we can't do it alone. This white paper shows how our industry and automobile manufacturers can work together to provide the most secure solutions possible for connected vehicles," said Cameron Coursey, vice president, Internet of Things Solutions, AT&T.
