As the number of connected vehicles on the road increases, along with the use of smart mobility services, we see a continued growth in the reported automotive cyber and fraud incidents. Understanding potential vulnerabilities and how criminals take advantage of them is key to preventing attacks in the future.
At Upstream, our research team is constantly analyzing incidents as they occur with the goal of delivering this critical information, while ensuring that our technology stays one step ahead of hackers and fraudsters.
In April 2019, Upstream published findings for Q1 of this year, which brought to surface the rapid increase in the number of incidents. Now, with H1 in the past, Upstream’s research team has produced an updated mid-year report based on reported incidents worldwide.
