The modern car offers an ever increasing target for hackers: the networking within the vehicle, with other vehicles, and with the traffic infrastructure, the manufacturer’s back end, and the passengers’ smartphones and tablets open up numerous new gateways for hackers. T-Systems offers a comprehensive automotive security strategy – from the development of the vehicle, through production and operation, to decommissioning.
Spying out vehicle position data and creating movement profiles of people, manipulating control equipment remotely and blackmailing fleet managers, calling expensive hotlines via the integrated SIM card, or outwitting the radio key system and stealing the car: hackers can have different methods and reasons for attacking a connected vehicle. The automotive industry must adopt and link security measures for all areas of the connected car’s digital ecosystem. This also applies to all data – from creation to transmission and storage. The objective: end-to-end security. This is indispensable, especially with regard to autonomous driving, as third-party interventions bear even greater risks.
