Zenzic has published its report on Cyber Resilience in Connected and Automated Mobility (CAM). The report sets out a summary of the findings of 7 projects, funded by CCAV and supported by Innovate UK and Zenzic. Each project was tasked with providing a clear picture of the challenges and potential solutions in ensuring digital resilience and cyber security within CAM.
One of the key recommendations to emerge from the research is the need to establish a Cyber Centre of Excellence focused specifically on CAM. The report details additional recommendations as to how the Centre of Excellence would operate. At its core, it would be a hub for existing and new capabilities and at the forefront of developing the capability to “monitor the operational security of connected and self-driving vehicles as they are deployed”.
The work being undertaken by all involved in these projects is a clear demonstrator of the UK’s determination to remain at the forefront of the development of CAM technologies. More broadly, this research will be key in helping to inform the shaping of policy and legislation for CAM and ensuring that the UK realises its 2030 vision, as set out in Zenzic's CAM Roadmap to 2030.
This informs us that every aspect of CAM is dependent on a secure and resilient system. Without this reliability we cannot realise the potential benefits of CAM, which include safety and security, productivity, access to transport and environment.
