Cybersecurity Questions Swirl Around Autonomous Vehicle Bills

Marc Scribner, a fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, said the gaps in cybersecurity policy in an agency draft rule issued on connected cars in 2016 is cause for concern that NHTSA won’t be able to meet the challenge of writing autonomous vehicle cybersecurity standards.

“I think it’s very naive of Congress to think that they can just fix this with more legislation, especially charging an agency to do more, when it’s proven that it can’t do what it’s supposed to be doing right now,” Scribner told Bloomberg BNA.
