“Whenever people discuss smart cities, revolutionizing transportation or the wider Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity, the topic of autonomous, or self-driving vehicles, seems to rise to the top of the conversation,” said Dan Lohrmann, Chief Strategist and Chief Security Officer, Security Mentor. “This is certainly an area where we all can relate to the opportunities and challenges at stake, since most of us drive cars and use public transportation.”

As the automotive sector takes steps to strengthen cybersecurity in connected and autonomous cars, questions remain about the direction the federal government will take in regard to regulations, guidelines, voluntary industry standards and best practices for automotive cybersecurity. The Billington Global Automotive Cybersecurity Summit brings together the important stakeholders in the dynamic world of connected cars and autonomous vehicles and will include CEOs in the auto industry as well as top government and technology leaders from around the world in a one-day event that includes a diverse list of topics and speakers.

“I’m exhilarated that events such as this new cybersecurity summit will address specific areas of anxiety and am excited to be participating in this prestigious event which brings cybersecurity to the forefront of this vital topic,” continued Lohrmann. “This event may very well become a model for other sector-specific cybersecurity summits around the world. Whether the topic is banking, healthcare, public utilities or other critical infrastructure sectors, there is a pressing dialog that is needed concerning the right balance of functionality, business innovation and cyber protections to move forward.”
