    Redefining cybersecurity for the third screen: from safety to privacy

    The privacy implications of vehicles are important and are an often overlooked problem yet. This presentation shows some reasons for that and why the automotive industry urgently needs to redefine what cybersecurity for vehicles is about: not just to ensure functional safety (FuSa) or safety of the intended function (SotiF), but needs to cover the protection of personal identifiable information (PII) as well. A demonstration of how to perform CarsBlues, a hack Andrea discovered 3 years ago, is planned. The discovered vulnerability is still unfixed for vehicles before model year 2019. After that we talk about current research and issues we are exploring. Finally we provide the advice to include privacy-by-design guidelines, challenges unique to vehicle systems, ethical cybersecurity disclosure, and creating ethical business models if you work on vehicle systems. We like to encourage a broader group of analysts to join into exploring privacy security for vehicles and to collaborate with us to create transparency.

    About the Presenter:

    Andrea Amico is the founder of Privacy4Cars, a first-of-its-kind platform designed to reliably erase Personal Information captured by and stored into modern vehicles while building best-in-class compliance records. The nation’s leading expert in vehicle privacy and cybersecurity, Amico launched a partnership between the Auto-ISAC and the International Automotive Remarketers Alliance (IARA) where he co-chairs the Compliance Committee. He is credited with penning the first industry statistics on the frequency and severity of data left in used vehicles, and ethically disclosed the “CarsBlues” vulnerability - likely the single broadest cybersecurity attack vector ever discovered in vehicles. Amico, and his groundbreaking work on Privacy4Cars, are often featured by national media, including The Washington Post, NPR, and NBC News, to name a few. He received his MBA from Columbia University’s prestigious Graduate School of Business and his MSc in engineering from Cagliari’s University in Italy and Linköping’s University in Sweden.
