Connected Cars & Cybersecurity: Hostage to fortune

Thursday, March 12

09:30 am - 10:20 am

All connected devices need remote software updates and cybersecurity protection—services that are overdue for connected vehicles and autonomous vehicle (AVs).

How quickly will Over-The-Air (OTA) & cybersecurity deploy? What will be the roles of original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) versus Tier 1 suppliers (companies that supply parts or systems directly to OEMs) and specialists? What opportunities are available for hardware, software, and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) developers?
