Vehicle Cyber Security Research and Development Trends

Market development activities for connected vehicle applications will increase dramatically during 2016, once automotive cyber security concerns are finally addressed, and those offering assurances are certain that deployment won't negatively affect the functional safety of vehicles.

In its recent worldwide market study, ABI Research analyzed all the available security solutions for automotive embedded capabilities, security software and secure wireless network connectivity.

They concluded that the emerging global hardware security module (HSM) market -- including both consumer and commercial vehicle applications -- will reach 2.3 billion units by 2020.

"In a car, there are typically about 100 different electrical control units, and right now, most cars do not contain secure-enough hardware," said Michela Menting, research director at ABI Research.

Automotive manufacturers acknowledge the vast upside potential for the Internet of Things (IoT) use cases, but it’s difficult to apply enterprise cyber security models into mobile cyber physical systems. New purpose-built security solutions are likely to be required -- in order to ensure success.

Demand for Vehicle Security R&D Investment

The key challenges for automotive manufacturers are learning to work with established security vendors, becoming more involved in the design and implementation of security standards and strategically incorporating validated security solutions at their research and development (R&D) level.

Data protection is also a relevant concern, and automobile OEMs will need to work closely with cyber security solution corporations to determine how to protect a connected vehicle's data and set necessary privacy parameters.

ABI believes that these OEMs must learn to relinquish some control as they integrate their business models with security vendors so that, together, the two can achieve the best in-breed security model.

Connected cars will communicate and share data with a number of systems and infrastructures. Therefore, the vehicle cyber security ecosystem must collectively address potential outside security threats from potential hackers, and the fundamental consumer privacy concerns for the vehicle owner.

"Cyber security is far behind in the automotive industry," according to Menting's assessment. "Different players are thinking about the idea, but actually unleashing commercially available vehicles equipped with cyber security solutions into the market has yet to happen."

Why Healthcare and Smart City Apps Drive 5G IoT

Fifth-generation (5G) wireless technology for cellular networks is a successor to fourth-generation (4G) wireless technology. By 2023, Juniper Research anticipates that there will be over 1 billion 5G connections globally. The technology will provide the data infrastructure for the advancement of wireless communications and for new developments in the Internet of Things (IoT) -- including smart cities and healthcare. 5G IoT Market Development According to the latest worldwide market study by Juniper Research, 5G IoT connections will reach 116 million globally by 2026 -- that's increasing from just 17 million connections in 2023. Juniper analysts predict that the healthcare sector applications and government or other smart city services will drive this outstanding 1,100 percent growth over the next three years. Juniper examined 5G adoption across key industry sectors -- such as the automotive, mobile broadband, and smart homes -- and forecasts healthcare and smart cities will accoun

How Savvy Leaders Re-Imagine Work in 2023

As we look to the year ahead, there will be significant challenges and opportunities facing the Chief Human Resource Officer (CHRO) role. In order to be successful, savvy HR leaders must be prepared to take proactive steps that adapt and evolve. "HR leaders have faced an increasingly unpredictable environment amid many organizations mandating a return to office, permanently higher turnover and burnt out employees," said Emily Rose McRae, senior director at Gartner . HR Innovation Market Development One of Gartner's key predictions for 2023 is that the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and automation will continue to increase within the enlightened digital workplace. This transition will require HR leaders to develop new skills and competencies in order to effectively manage and lead teams that are increasingly relying on these enabling technologies. Additionally, HR leaders will need to ensure that their organizations are investing in the necessary infrastructure and re

Top 10 CFO Priorities Require Rethinking Finance

The Chief Financial Officer (CFO) role is essential to digital business growth. While CFOs do not get closely involved in the tactical details of the digital transformation of their functions, they still recognize its strategic importance. According to the latest survey by Gartner, CFOs are faced with the challenge of balancing the need for substantive digital business innovation with financial cost control and risk management. "CFOs will be stretched thinly across many activities in 2023. The survey revealed a wide range of actions CFOs plan to either lead or be significantly involved with," said Marko Horvat, vice president at Gartner. Survey Findings: The Top Ten Priorities Cost Optimization - Cost reduction remains the top priority for CFOs as they look for ways to cut costs and improve efficiency in their operations. This includes identifying cost-saving opportunities through automation, outsourcing, and business process improvement. Business Continuity - The global C
