The Cybersecurity Vulnerabilities of Self-Driving Cars


Yuval Diskin

At Black Hat 2015, the talk of this annual gathering of cybersecurity experts was the remote hacking into and subsequent control of a Jeep Cherokee driving 70 mph on a public highway. Preparing for an autonomous future, the many ways by which today’s cars are linked to the internet—and the new opportunities and risks these connections imply—multiply exponentially. “The connected car is changing the automotive industry from inside,” says Yuval Diskin.

Diskin is former head of Israel’s internal security service (Shin Bet) and Chairman of CyMotive Technologies. Five years ago, he and two former Shin Bet colleagues co-founded a cybersecurity consultancy.
