Cybersecurity for Automobiles: BlackBerry's 7-Pillar Recommendation
May 18, 2018
As vehicles become increasingly connected and reliant on software, new threats emerge. To address these concerns, help mitigate security risks, and build the foundation for a reliable and secure car,
Auto cybersecurity is on national agendas because automobiles are increasingly connected to the Internet and other systems and bad actors can commandeer a vehicle and render it dangerous, amongst other undesirable outcomes. The problem is complex and the point-solutions that exist today are fragmented leaving a very porous and “hackable” system. BlackBerry provides a 7-Pillar recommendation to harden automobile electronics from attack. The solution is intended to make it significantly harder for an attacker to create mischief. This paper describes the 7-pillars and how BlackBerry can help.
