Gemalto discusses securing connected cars at TU-Automotive Detroit

AUSTIN, Texas, May 28, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As connected cars drive us toward a world of new mobility, Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), the world leader in digital security, is bringing its automotive security expertise to TU-Automotive Detroit during a panel discussion. Along with other industry leaders, Gemalto's Vice President of M2M Laetitia Jay will share insights on "Cybersecurity: Hackers Take Control of the Wheel."

According to the GSMA, the connected car market will grow threefold in only five years1. Automotive connectivity is evolving from closed telematics systems to an open architecture that connects the vehicle not only to users or the car's manufacturer, but also to other vehicles, traffic control infrastructure or cloud based application platforms. In such a highly versatile environment, protecting any potential openings against security hacks is essential.

Gemalto will share its expertise on how infrastructure can and must be designed to protect and secure the vehicle, all its systems and the backend IT servers that manage the connected experience

In addition to the lineup of speakers and full schedule at TU-Automotive Detroit, June 3-4, attendees are invited to visit the Gemalto booth for technology demonstrations and to meet one-on-one with M2M and digital security experts.
