Automotive Cyber-security Companies and Offerings

In the mid-2010's interest in car hacking took off. This occured after researchers demonstrated previously theorectical hacking attacks against vehicles. Interest was increased when a spike in luxury car thefts was widely reported due to poor systems engineering. Thieves who gained physical access to Land Rovers and BMWs (amongst others) could reprogram blank security key fobs for the car, and then drive the cars away. As a result of the current car hacking boom automotive cyber-security companies have emerged, as well as existing automotive engineering companies addressing vehicle cyber-security. They offer services and products that aim to improve a vehicle's resilience against hacking. These companies' offerings are commonly targeted at vehicle manufacturers and automotive sector component suppliers. Automotive cyber-security is seen as a growth business area because of the increasing number of computerised systems and sensors on cars, especially with the interest in robocars, i.e. connected and autonomous vehicles (CAV).
