Artificial intelligence in autonomous driving poses cyber security risks

The European Commission Joint Research Center and the EU Cybersecurity Agency (ENISA) are sounding the alarm about cybersecurity-related artificial intelligence (AI) in autonomous vehicles.

A report released yesterday examines the risks and makes recommendations for mitigation. It is recommended to follow a safety approach, already from the design, when developing the TN capabilities in autonomous vehicles, where cybersecurity becomes a central element of vehicle design.

The report recommends in particular the systematic assessment of the safety and hazard of TN components before and throughout the development process. It also calls for the adoption of security policies in the field of artificial intelligence, as well as a security culture, where all actors involved in the development of these products are adequately trained in the field of cyber security and work together with the common goal of creating a secure product.

Typical are the statements made, among others, by Maria Gabriel, Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth: cybersecurity. “I welcome this report and urge carmakers, policymakers and researchers to work closely together to follow up on the report’s practical recommendations to ensure the safety of future autonomous vehicles.”

Internal Market Commissioner Thierry Breton added: “Autonomous driving, connected cars, electric vehicles and collective mobility will be the main drivers of the car industry in the coming years. We need to ensure that these innovations are safe and reliable from the outset. Together with the Member States, we are implementing a strong framework for the prevention and response to cyber threats, including the new EU Cyber ​​Security Strategy, a proposal for the revision of the Network and Information Security Directive, the the EU 5G security toolkit and the EU cybersecurity framework “.
