F-Secure Consulting’s study, which is available for download along with Zenzic’s Cyber Feasibility Report and the other 6 project studies, takes a holistic view in its examination of the various security challenges involved in the design and maintenance of the UK’s ITS networks. These networks represent a vast ecosystem of technologies and organizations that will collect and process large amounts of data to ensure the systems function safely and properly.
F-Secure Consulting’s research highlights the tremendous amount of data collected by CAV and ITS systems, as well as the value of the systems themselves, making them attractive targets for a variety of attackers.
According to James Loureiro, F-Secure Consulting’s UK Director of Research, this gives CAV/ITS testing sites (testbeds) set up across the UK an important role in helping secure new technologies as they’re developed for use in CAV/ITS systems – something he says is a significant opportunity for the country.
“The role of the UK’s testbeds in making sure emerging CAV/ITS technologies work together as part of a safe, secure, reliable system cannot be overstated. These sites give security and tech development an opportunity to intersect and inform one another. And with the right governance, support, and expertise, these projects can produce insights that establish the UK as an innovator in securing the technologies and infrastructure that will shape nations across the globe for years to come,” said Loureiro.
F-Secure Consulting’s report also emphasizes that the testbeds' use of new technologies make them likely targets for attackers interested in gaining access to these technologies, and require special security considerations.
