Security for the Automotive Ecosystem of the future

No future for Automotive Industry without Security? Security has to become an inherent part of cars and the “automotive digitization” – on the one hand as multiple connected devices and interfaces as well as the backend services. In addition, the Automotive Industry will need long-term partnerships in order to manage higher Security requirements as well as increasing complexity to be able to focus their own resources on core topics like Mobility, Connected Cars and Autonomous Driving.

The keynote will give a pragmatic overview of the benefits of integrating and orchestrating Security solutions and proven services available today – showing examples like Automotive Security Operation Center and InCar Security Solutions.
