The automobile industries are currently undergoing major evolutions and every car manufacturer is striving to create a differentiating driving experience for its customers. Connected cars have turned out to be an everyday reality. Connected vehicles are different from autonomous vehicles. Connected vehicle technologies enable vehicles to communicate with each other and the world around them. The connected vehicles supply useful information to the driver, including the dangerous situations to avoid. Autonomous vehicles independently navigate the road network. Autonomous vehicles will be safer, faster, and more efficient by incorporating connected vehicles.
In a short period, the cars have evolved from inanimate bits of metal to four-wheeled infotainment systems that provide both information and entertainment to the customers. They deliver fundamental digital services and also gather data. As per Gartner’s predictions, the demand for connected vehicles will be more than 740000 autonomous vehicles in the global market by 2023.
With the growth of connected cars, there is a rise in breach of data and cyber-attacks concerning cars. In the UK there are several privacy and security vulnerabilities that car manufacturers and customers must be cognizant about the new age cars.
Worldwide the number of cyber-attacks on vehicles is increasing. With the presence of connected devices, security flaws occur. The valuable data of the customers collected by the vehicles are transmitted to the manufacturers and service providers
Facing down security vulnerabilities
Globally, the number of cyber-attacks on vehicles is growing. This is because, as with any connected device, security flaws do exist, and they can be taken advantage of. These flaws are compromising both the physical security of the car and the valuable data these vehicles produce and transmit to manufacturers and service providers.
Safeguarding personal data
They require the use of sensitive personal data regarding payment information to confidential insurance details. A chip to cloud approach to security is adopted. It protects the data at every point of its journey between the car and network. The use of a global private mobile network is an effective way to strengthen the ecosystem. Hence, this will provide more secure and reliable control over data capture and management capabilities. Ultimately, the manufacturers, dealers, and service centres can offer a better experience to the customers while giving the organization more control over the performance of the network.
