Re: Automobile security
Well, the more press this gets, the more people become aware of it. I'm surprised that this hasn't hit the major news outlets. I know that car hack videos have garnered millions of hits on youtube, so at least social media helps to spread the information. This is such a critical issue, and it doesn't stop at vehicles. The security of the IoT is of particular concern, as we know from discussions about the topic.

Re: Automobile security
Totally agree that this is an important and necessary first step for the auto industry to take to protect consumers as next gen connected cars come to market. Hope the car makers are paying attention!

Automobile security
If this gains traction, and there's no reason why it shouldn't, then maybe for the first time, we will see security baked in during the infancy of a technology application. With widespread publicity, people will be aware of the dangers of complacency or ignorance, especially if they use the technology in such a personal thing as an automobile. With the recent spate of data breaches, the general public is keenly aware of its effect on them, and I venture to guess that they are pretty fed up with it. Automobiles are big ticket items on anyone's budget, and I hope that buyers will take its technology security into consideration in the vehicle that they purchase. Can you imagine a public service commercial displaying the remote takeover of a vehicle, leaving the driver helpless? What an impact that would make and it would place enormous pressure on the automobile industry to take technology security seriously.
