Can Your Radio Take Control of Your Truck?

The automotive cybersecurity landscape is evolving, moving beyond mere ransomware attacks on fleets. While that is something to be guarded against, hackers can now weaponize connected vehicles in ways that can and sooner or later will compromise safety. Software defined vehicles and unsecure APIs and mobile services are opening new attack vectors for the bad guys to exploit. And new vectors are opening every day.

Upstream Security's president of North American operations, Hiam Kantor, joins HDT Equipment Editor Jim Park to discuss the scope of the problem, and look at what needs to be done to keep the Black Hats at bay.
