The Science and Technology Select Committee of the House of Lords released “Connected and Autonomous Vehicles: The future?”, a report that investigates the opportunities and challenges facing the implementation of autonomous cars in the UK. The Committee recognised that “Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAVs) could be susceptible to hacking and used for malicious purposes”. Numerous witnesses testified to the need for the Government to perform a strong coordinating role with regard to Cybersecurity and that partnerships with the right stakeholders and industry experts will be key to keeping CAVs safe from attack. One such expert is Alex Cowan, CEO of transport Cybersecurity firm, RazorSecure. Alex was a key player in the development of RazorSecure Delta, a product that recognises the limitations of traditional firewalls and understands that once breached, hackers can have free reign within vital transport systems.
