Covisint to Speak on Securing the Connection Between the Cloud and the Car at Connected Mobility Summit

DETRIOT, Oct. 27, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Covisint Corporation (Nasdaq:COVS), a leading cloud platform provider enabling Internet of Things (IoT) and Identity Management-centric (IdM) solutions, today announced that David Miller, chief security officer for Covisint, will speak at the Connected Mobility Summit taking place October 28, 2015, from 4 – 9 p.m. PT, at the Dogpatch Studios in San Francisco, CA.

During the session, Miller will address:

  • Specific security challenges we will encounter as vehicles become part of the “Internet of Things”.
  • Why managing identities for multiple drivers of a particular car will become a necessity as marketers customize the driving experience to meet personal needs.
  • How ‘portable identities’ will be required as new car-sharing and ride-sharing models gain popularity.
  • The security and privacy challenges presented by different government jurisdictions.

“Today, 20 percent of all vehicles sold globally are connected. By 2020, when nearly all new vehicles sold will be connected, the number of actual connections will have multiplied exponentially -- beyond drivers, devices and apps, to road infrastructure, home appliances and more,” said Miller. “Securely managing the complexity of interactions of the data and devices will become increasingly challenging. And, special consideration will need to be given to security and privacy policies and laws, as applied by varied government jurisdictions.”
