Automotive and vehicle fleets are more connected than ever, with telematics systems, communications systems, electronic logging and more proliferating attack vectors. These vectors can enable cyber criminals to take over vehicle operations, steal sensitive data and high value cargo. While connected vehicles certainly enable safety, mobility and environmental efficiencies, adding interconnectivity introduces significant new risks to fleet operators, drivers and even the general public.
By 2020, 75 percent of all new cars are expected to have internet connectivity, according to the U.S.
Assuming attackers can beat traditional vehicle intrusion detection systems, RunSafe Security technology monitors a vehicle’s messaging system, differentiating between malicious and trusted communications and, most importantly, utomatically rendering malicious messages
Further, RunSafe Security uses a unique technology to cyberharden vehicle components which reduces opportunities for attackers to inject malware on modules such as brake systems, ECUs, CAN bus, telematics, and infotainment. This level of protection helps ensure driver safety, reduce insurance costs, and secure sensitive information. (Link to Guardian)
