Connecting Canada

Securing the vehicles of the future

There are new opportunities for travel and transportation in Canada being presented by connected, autonomous, shared, and electric (CASE) vehicles. They also present a set of fresh challenges for manufacturers, suppliers, regulators, fleet owners, and governments at every level to ensure safety and efficiency on roads.

Cyber risk is one of the most important areas in this new ecosystem. Hyperconnectivity, increased complexity, broader attack surfaces, and the volume and value of data make CASE vehicles and infrastructure more vulnerable to cyberattacks.

In this report, we will:

  • Identify the drivers for a strategic and risk-conscious cybersecurity approach in the CASE ecosystem.
  • Identify how CASE-specific cybersecurity regulations and frameworks are being developed to support growth.
  • Explore why the development and implementation of cybersecurity and risk strategies for CASE vehicles must be a shared objective for all parties in the ecosystem.
  • Review the importance of an inclusive cyber strategy across the entire life cycle of CASE-based fleets.
