Cyber Secure Car 2017 comes to Japan - bringing Global Experts to focus on Cybersecurity of Connected, Automated Vehicles

TOKYO, Sept 7, 2017 - (ACN Newswire) - Cyber Secure Car, the leading automotive cyber security conference, is set to come to Tokyo. Now in its third year, the annual meeting will host prominent automotive and transportation cyber security experts from 26 - 27 September 2017 at Kogakuin University located in the heart of Tokyo's Shinjuku District.

As vehicles become increasingly digital, connected and autonomous, the security and integrity of on-board systems is a top priority for the automotive industry.

Over the two days, the conference will feature presentations from leading global automotive and security specialists covering issues including: hacker motivation & methodology; semiconductor integrity; on-board vehicle network security; OTA updates; cyber-physical systems & functional safety; connected infotainment; lightweight cryptography; V2X communications; secure embedded software development; data protection; privacy legislation and more.

The aim of the conference is to give engineers and executives from OEMs, suppliers and service providers the knowledge and contacts they need to stay ahead in this fast-moving area and ensure that their customers, products and reputations stay protected.

"Exciting new connected services and the promise of vehicle automation are turning the car into an attractive target for hackers, fraudsters and other sophisticated cyber criminals. And with today's vehicles incorporating up to 100 ECUs connected to a range of external networks including Wi-Fi, cellular and the internet, the challenge of protecting these complex systems throughout the product lifecycle is considerable," said Ian Dickie, Managing Director of Automotive Knowledge Associates, the organisers of the conference. 

"Attendees can expect to hear from some of the world's leading automotive security minds who will deliver deep insights and practical guidance on how to harden the defences of today's production vehicles, and how to design security into the next generation of highly connected, automated cars and mobility services," he added.

Notable keynote speakers include Yasuhiko Taniwaki, Director-General, Global ICT Strategy Bureau, Ministry of Internal Affairs & Communications (MIC) a leading architect of Japan's national cybersecurity strategy; and Francois Guichard, UN Secretary Vehicle Active Safety. Francois is the ITS / Automated Driving focal point of the United Nations (UNECE) whose responsibilities include management of the UN Task Force on Cyber Security and OTA issues.
