Case Study Automotive sector by Geert Pater - RDW
Vehicle Safety and Security
What can a Governmental body, like the Dutch RDW, do or can do to help developments of Vehicles forward but also take well considered steps to make sure that security and safety measurements will be met.
Looking at the fast development of highly automated (autonomous) and connected vehicles, a lot of quality measurements and cyber security related subjects come to the working field of OEM’s and almost everybody that’s playing a role in the mobility chain.
Geert is recently assigned as Manager of a Department that is responsible for representation of the Netherlands in international meetings on Vehicle standards (EU and UNECE). He’s a former Manager ICT and ICT lead Architect. He will talk and explain how Dutch government supports the innovation but at the same time is undertaking actions to find a way to get guarantees on the best way to stay Safe and Secure while Regulations are still discussed and underway. Examples are a first set of Regulations for protection against Cyber Security and “Over The Air updates”, a legal Experiment Act , the development of an Auditing framework, performing “learning audits”, and so on.
In addition to Geert Pater, various speakers will address how they deal with security and how to increase cyber resilience within their business during the managerial track of the event. Read more about the sector case studies.
