Cybersecurity experts call for better automotive cyber safety, echoing Jacobs School research findings

A group of cybersecurity experts has announced a Five Start Automotive Cyber Safety Program at the annual Defcon conference in Las Vegas this week to prevent cars from being hacked, a threat that was first pointed out by a team of computer scientists here at UC San Diego and at the University of Washington back in 2010.

The group, called I am the Cavalry, breaks down the five stars as follows:
Safety by Design
Third Party Collaboration
Evidence Capture
Security Updates
Segmentation and Isolation
