62% of consumers are worried that cars will be easily hacked in the future, according to an RSA presentation from Kelly Blue Book. In their corresponding report “Braking the Connected Car: The Future of Vehicle Vulnerabilities,” one in three prospective car buyers say connectivity is a big factor in their decision. Furthermore, they claim that 62% of consumers are worried that cars will be easily hacked in the future. And yet, 44% of consumers feel that the vehicle manufacturer is responsible for securing a vehicle from hacking. So much being personally accountable for our own security.
Ever since some enterprising hackers remotely disabled the brakes on a Jeep and sent it into a ditch, there has been a lot of concern over the security of connected vehicles and the potential for compromise to critical systems.
