The ease by which hacker attacks can transcend from causing digital to physical damage is starting to be fully known.
What was once science fiction is today reality – judging by the most recent published automotive hacks it is clear that cyber criminals have the capabilities to fully control vehicles – one does not need to look further than the tragic terrorist attack in Nice this summer that killed 86 people to understand the potential damage that could be caused – worse yet, these hacks could be performed remotely.
To counter this growing threat the U.S. Justice Department has formed a threat analysis organisation to investigate potential national security threats caused by IoT devises, including autonomous and connected cars. In a recent piece from Automotive News this effort and how it relates to the automotive industry is examined in great detail.
Trillium’s mission is in line with these efforts – our Secure IoT suite is built to eliminate any attack before it even begins.
