Airbags Today, Cybersecurity Tomorrow


Abe Chen


The auto industry has created and enforced rigorous standards for airbags, seatbelts, and other physical safety measures, but there’s been a less-inspiring effort when it comes to preventing cybersecurity threats. This can be dangerous because unlike a smartphone, a compromised car can put your life at risk. In this session, BYTON VP of Digital Technology Abe Chen discusses why security needs to be the first consideration when designing connected and autonomous cars.
