Security must become part of basic vehicle design

In order to secure the autonomous vehicle, OEMs need to integrate security as a core component of any new vehicle. By Jack Hunsley

As a representative of the automotive and infotainment division in one of the world’s largest tech companies, it is understandable that cyber security plays a key role in the thinking at Harman. Even before its acquisition by Samsung, Harman was competing as a world leader in automotive innovation, with a client list that includes the world’s most important automakers. But, as the future becomes more and more connected, the focus is starting to shift within the company.

Having operated as a Tier 1 supplier for many years, the company has begun to reposition itself as not just a supplier, but an expert in automotive cyber security solutions. As Vice President of Automotive Cybersecurity at Harman, Yuval Weisglass, explained to Automotive World, Harman is beginning to offer not just security for its own products, but also a clear foundation on which all automakers can build.
