2015 Ponemon survey of automakers and suppliers

Recent statistics about automobile safety are disconcerting, both for the automotive supply chain and for the consumer. Media attention has highlighted numerous security and safety issues for the connected car. But, as sensational as some of these headlines are, the problem is real.

The Ponemon Institute recently conducted a cybersecurity survey sponsored by Rogue Wave Software and Security Innovation of over 500 automotive developers, engineers, and executives, primarily from automotive OEMs and tier one suppliers. The results were eye opening:

  • 90 percent think that it is difficult to secure automotive applications
  • 57 percent doubt that automotive software development teams have the skills necessary to combat software security threats
  • 51 percent consider security an add-on feature, rather than integrating it into the software development lifecycle
