Overview:  Talking Cars – A Privacy by Design Case Study 10 Years in the Making

  • Within 5 years, all cars manufactured in the US will carry Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) equipment to broadcast their speed and location constantly. This mandate from the Department of Transportation is a safety of life program. V2V will sense hazards, alert drivers, and is estimated to save thousands of lives each year.  But these safety benefits carry serious concerns about security and privacy.
  • Adams’ will discuss how system designers used Privacy by Design to protect driver privacy. Moreover, he will discuss specific software security threats and the V2V certification management system, the largest ever conceived.
  • Particular attention will also be paid to the privacy concerns program inventors have dealt with over the past 10 years while planning this 50,000,000-unit IoT system.

Ed Adams’ thought leadership has directly benefited tens of thousands of security professionals at industry meetings, including RSA Conference USA, RSA Conference Asia, Ponemon Institute’s RIM Renaissance, OWASP AppSec California, Connected Security Expo at ISC West, Phoenix Security & Audit Conference, Mozilla’s Privacy Lab, Allstate CyberCon, Reed ONE2ONE IT Security Summit, Insperity Customer Security Conference, and the Levi Strauss CyberSecurity Conference, just to name a few.
