InSecurity Podcast: Jeff Davis on Smart Mobility Beyond Autonomous Vehicles

The global autonomous vehicle market accounted for US $27.9 billion in 2017.

Forecasters expect a compounded annual growth rate of 41.5% through 2026, which would boost the market to US $615 BILLION.

Autonomous vehicles could be 15% of global light vehicle sales by 2030.

This progress toward modern mobility is positive, but it comes with complexities. Biggie Smalls once said something about dramatic infusions of capital and the subsequent results.

Our friends at the Ponemon Institute did some digging:

  • 84% of automakers and their suppliers aren’t sure cybersecurity practices are keeping pace with evolving technologies.
  • 30% of survey respondents do not have an established product cybersecurity program or team.
  • 63% test less than half of their hardware, software and other technologies for vulnerabilities.

There’s plenty that the automotive industry can control. But, do you know what steps you can take to avoid the potential damage cyberthreats can cause to your organization? Well, you’re in luck because our next guest is someone who knows many of those steps.

This week on the InSecurity Podcast, host Matt Stephenson chats with Jeff Davis, Head of Smart Transportation Innovation and Development at BlackBerry, about the ever-changing world of connected transportation. It’s not all self-driving cars though. Want to take a deep dive into what is involved in building a smart city? Stick around…
