For many automobile enthusiasts, European car companies—including Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini and Maserati–epitomize automotive excellence. Now, for many connected-car enthusiasts, Europe is leading the way to the future as well.
The European Union Agency for Network and Information Security (ENISA) recently announced that it is performing a study on cybersecurity measures for smart cars. According to ENISA, the study seeks to “establish a comprehensive list of cyber security policies, tools, standards, measures and provide recommendations to enhance the level of security of smart cars.”
The internet of things, connected cars and self-driving cars present opportunities to “revolutionize mobility,” according to industry professionals. However, they present significant security risks, as hackers are finding new ways to break into internet-connected cars.
Another problem with smart cars is that a wide range of laws and regulations are implicated. Some of the existing laws and regulations applicable to connected cars include telecommunications regulations, road and automotive regulations, data protection laws and consumer protection laws. However, it may be possible to create a harmonized international framework, industry professionals recently told Bloomberg BNA.
Perhaps ENISA’s study may result in a set of policies and standards that could pave the road to a robust smart car regulatory regime.
