Request for Comments "Connected Cars - Workshop, Project No. P175403"
The American Insurance Association (AIA) appreciate the opportunity to provide input on the topics to be addressed at the June 28, 2017 workshop on privacy and security issues posed by automated and connected cars. Insurers have always had a strong interest in the evolution of vehicle technology and most recently the road to vehicle autonomy. There are many issues to be considered in this evolution and importantly privacy and security are among these. As such we look forward to the dialogue on June 28th and offer for your consideration the following additional topic of interest for discussion: "What is the vehicle manufacturers' policy with regard to identifying and addressing security vulnerabilities, particularly where such vulnerabilities may impact physical safety as well as data security?" Thank you for your consideration and please let us know if you have any follow-up questions.
