As vehicles become increasingly connected, and autonomous vehicle technology becomes a reality, IoT-focused cyberattacks in the transport and automotive sector are becoming alarmingly widespread.
According to new research by Irdeto, 77% of respondents’ organizations in this sector have experienced an IoT-focused cyberattack in the past twelve months. Of those that experienced a cyberattack, 91% had an impact on the organization, including operational downtime and compromised customer data and/or brand or reputational damage. Perhaps most alarming, many organizations are not properly prepared for future threats with only 6% indicating that they have what they need to combat cyberattacks.
The Irdeto Global Connected Industries Cybersecurity Survey of 225 security decision makers working in transport and automotive (700 respondents in total) found that while a greater focus on cybersecurity within the industry is needed, many respondents’ organizations in this space are looking at the benefits of security beyond its protection capabilities.
