Cyber Attacks Pose Roadblock For Driverless Cars

With malicious attacks becoming more numerous and sophisticated, and with many of the market’s most valuable companies hailing from the tech sector, a prime target for such attacks, there are a number of emerging areas that appear to be on the next frontier of risk. Often cited as the most vulnerable are large, ever-growing and data-rich cloud computing platforms; the new universe of IOT devices that automate everything from home thermostats to ordering items from Amazon; and the evolution of online ‘robo’ financial advisors that have attracted billions in assets but which are still in the relatively embryonic stages of development. None of these are likely to cause as many cybersecurity headaches as autonomous cars.
