As we look to build increasingly connected road ecosystem, from cars to signs to the roads themselves, it is necessary to recognise the potential cyber threats, and how they may manifest in the road environment.
With over 80% of passenger kilometres taken by car, van or taxi, and over 75% of goods moved by road, it is hard to deny that they are a lifeline for the nation. Given their strategic importance, the potential financial and human safety risks means that cyber threats require due consideration from the outset. Fulfilling smart objectives for the road ecosystem will not happen without adequate cyber security.
This joint event between techUK’s Cyber programme and the Transport work stream of the SmarterUK programme will unpack threats associated with key trends in the road environment, in particular relation to connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs) and smart road infrastructure.
The agenda for the day is as follows:
0900 - 0930: Registration
0930 - 1035: Session One: Connected and Autonomous Vehicles
1035 - 1100: Coffee Break
1100 - 1230: Session Two: Connected road infrastructure
1230 - 1240: Event wrap-up and networking lunch.
We invite you to join us for lunch and networking following the event close.
