Synopsys and SAE International released the report, "Securing the Modern Vehicle: A Study of Automotive Industry Cybersecurity Practices." Based on a survey of global automotive manufacturers and suppliers conducted by Ponemon Institute, the report highlights critical cybersecurity challenges and deficiencies affecting many organizations in the automotive industry. The study found that 84% of automotive professionals have concerns that their organizations' cybersecurity practices are not keeping pace with evolving technologies. The survey also found that 30% of organizations do not have an established cybersecurity program or team, and 63% test less than half of the automotive technology they develop for security vulnerabilities.
"SAE, in partnership with Synopsys, is pleased to present the findings of this study, as it provides real-world data to validate the concerns of cybersecurity professionals across the industry and highlights a path forward," said Jack Pokrzywa, SAE International director of Ground Vehicle Standards.
