FASTR Executive Director noted in recent Consumer Reports article

FASTR Executive Director Craig Hurst was quoted in a Consumer Reports article published yesterday. Entitled “Your Car Could Be the Next Ransomware Target,” the article discusses the importance of automotive security in an age when cars are increasingly computerized.

“Once you connect the car to the internet, the entire vehicle becomes a threat surface. If the auto industry doesn’t adapt, we’ll continue to see mistakes and potential vulnerabilities for things like ransomware to take place,” says Craig Hurst, executive director of the Future of Automotive Security Technology Research (FASTR), a nonprofit security research consortium of automakers, suppliers, and software companies.
