Toronto, Ontario — As automotive technology evolves to become more autonomous and electrified, cyber threats have become a cause for concern.
So, to help mitigate those risks and prioritize research and development in securing autonomous vehicles, electric vehicle and autonomous vehicle cybersecurity provider AUTOCRYPT and the University of Windsor’s SHIELD Automotive Cybersecurity Centre of Excellence, have formed a partnership.
“The goals of SHIELD and AUTOCRYPT align together exceptionally well,” said AUTOCRYPT’s Director of Business Development, Sean HJ Cho. “This partnership will allow us to work more closely with the connected and autonomous vehicle security landscape in Canada, as the country advances in cutting-edge technologies for electric, connected, and autonomous vehicles and begins to implement necessary changes following the UNECE’s WP.29 regulations. Our existing technology and real-world use cases will allow us to contribute to the shift that needs to take place in the minds of both corporations and consumers: that security should not be taken for granted, and vehicles and mobility infrastructure need to be secured before drivers hit the road.”
AUTOCRYPT is an automotive security provider, focused on not only raising awareness of the need to prioritize security, but also providing comprehensive security solutions to mitigate those risks.
SHIELD focuses on research and innovation of automotive cybersecurity technology as well as education and training for students and corporations in order to raise awareness for the need to prioritize cybersecurity preparedness.
