A report into seven separate studies relating to cyber security for connected and autonomous vehicles is suggesting a centre of excellence is set up to support the safe and secure roll-out of CAV technology.
The reports, overseen by Zenzic say that the Centre of Excellence should be a hub for knowledge sharing, combining capabilities and “doubling down on UK strength.”
It also says it should develop the capability to monitor the operational security of CAV and to draw up a cyber resilience scale.
It’ll also be the centre of R and D and draw everything into a single comprehensive framework through which the UK will approach cyber resilience and identify priority gaps for further research and investment.
“It’s clear that the successful deployment of connected and self-driving vehicles and achieving the UK’s 2030 vision for CAM is hinged upon the
prioritisation of investment in cyber security and digital resilience,” the report says. “Together with CCAV ]Centre for Connected and Automated Vehicles] and Innovate UK, Zenzic will be looking at what future programmes of work could continue to address these topics as well as to position the UK in a strong place of leadership by establishing a Cyber Centre of Excellence in the UK.”
