Study reveals laxness among automakers in terms of cybersecurity
An independent study conducted by Ponemon Institute found that 30% of the automotive companies do not have their own cybersecurity programme or a team. It also found that these companies do not even hire external organisations to secure the software used in their products.
Moreover, the survey shows that around 63% of all automotive firms are heedless when it comes to testing vulnerabilities. Less than half of software, hardware, and other technologies they develop remain untested.
