Connected car security and protection of driver data have come under scrutiny due to a recent segment on 60 Minutes and a report on the subject by U.S. Senator Ed Markey that calls for regulation. The Federal Trade Commission released a detailed report earlier this year proposing measures industries including automotive can take to enhance and protect consumers’ privacy and security as the “Internet of Things” trend of connected devices proliferates. The report recommends steps such as building security into devices and providing rapid-response security patches for known risks, as well as limiting the collection of consumer data, but stops short of supporting legislation that could hinder the growth and benefits of IOT technology. C3 President Doug Newcomb sat down with FTC Commissioner Maureen K. Ohlhausen and Catherine McCullough, Executive Director of the Intelligent Car Coalition, to examine security and privacy as it relates to the connected car.
