The Workshop: A Series of Actionable Discussions
The Workshop on Cyber Security for Future Smart Mobility hosted by the UK Israel Tech Hub & partners will unite British and Israeli executives, regulators, operators, startups and investors from both the automotive and cyber security ecosystems. The goal is to facilitate a thoughtful exchange of knowledge, best practice, and innovation that will translate into an actionable work plan going forward.
Due to the expansive nature of future mobility challenges, the upcoming workshop will provide focus on three of the leading topics currently posing grave challenges to the future implementation of CAV platforms:
(1) Security in design (both HW/SW)
(2) Securing future MaaS applications
(3) State of Legislation – current and future implications.
Why Cyber for Mobility in the UK?
In order to meet a rising threat from cyber-attacks, UK companies and government are investing significantly in developing cyber security capabilities, with £1.9 billion in planned investment by the government by 2021. As technological innovation accelerates, so does the capability to exploit this technology for criminal purposes. UK government policy is placing a significant emphasis on cyber security capability in order to protect critical national infrastructures. The average cost of cyber crime to transport companies in the UK currently stands at £2.4 million. The rapidly changing security and mobility landscape is likely to mean more cyber-attacks, more often, and potentially with more severe consequences. The UK has the potential to become a global leader in secure intelligent mobility because it has capabilities that can be applied to the sector, coupled with supportive government policy on innovation and cyber security.
Why Cyber for Mobility in Israel?
Israeli security experts and scientists have positioned the country at the forefront of cyber defence, developing everything from the basic building blocks of network security, data encryption to information protection and monitoring. Today, Israel is considered a leading player in the global market, commercially and in research. In 2014 alone, Israel cyber security exports were $6 billion - 8% of the global market's total of $71.7 billion. Meanwhile, Israel is also a leading global mobility Hub, leveraging deep expertise in computer vision, cyber security, and big data. We are optimistic about the ability of Israel’s cyber security entrepreneurs to continue to innovate to the evolving cyber needs of global industry, and seek to enable British stakeholders to protect themselves against rapidly evolving and increasingly complex threats.
