Cybersecurity strategies for securing connected vehicles have traditionally been focused around the security of the vehicle internals. This session will outline some of the automotive cybersecurity landscape using findings spanning eight years of research.
We will then dive into an innovative new approach to automotive security - cloud-based security - offering agent-less, backwards compatible and instantly deployable protection.
A future with driverless cars means people will have more options to avoid driving on their own, beyond trains, buses and airplanes.
Distance, travel time, cost and convenience will influence the decisions.
Passengers could eat, drink, work and sleep during the 10-hour drive. They could leave whenever they want, and pack whatever they want – including liquids and pocketknives – with no searches or scans. When they get to their destination, they wouldn’t have to find a rental car and navigate to the actual place they’re going. These changes could substantially change the aviation industry.

People are struggling to explain the alarming rise in pedestrian deaths, which reached a generation-long high in 2018. Cell phone use, especially by pedestrians, is often floated as the explanation.
It’s easy to see why this theory is popular. Pedestrian deaths started rising in 2009 about the time smart phones began becoming ubiquitous.
But distracted walking — you hear the terms “zombie pedestrians,” or “petextrians” thrown around — probably isn’t the explanation for the additional 2,000 pedestrian deaths last year compared to a decade ago.

Companies and businesses across Europe are having to rethink their fleet policies because of external factors which are introducing unprecedented levels of change.
That was the message from Thibault Alleyn, Global Consulting Director at FleetVision, the fleet and mobility consultancy arm of TÜV SÜD Group and sister company to Fleet Logistics, at a high-level conference in London recently.
Alleyn told delegates that external factors were forcing companies to rethink their approach to fleet. Ten years ago, he said, it was not uncommon for companies to have five-year-old fleet policies in place which were still relatively up to date.
Now, that was no longer the case due to four key issues: tax and legislation, the supplier offering, changes in doing business and employee mentality, said Alleyn.
