Description

A new paper by the Federal Trade Commissions Bureau of Consumer Protection details the key takeaways from the June 28, 2017, workshop the Commission co-hosted with the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration focused on privacy and security issues related to connected cars.

The Staff Perspective summarizes important themes from the discussion by panelists at the full-day workshop. The paper notes that panelists discussed the types of data collected from autonomous and connected cars and the ways in which the data can be used. In addition, it notes that consumers may be concerned about secondary, unexpected uses of such data. Participants noted that addressing consumer privacy concerns is critical to consumer acceptance and adoption of the emerging technologies behind connected cars and that different approaches may be needed depending on how the data is used. The paper also details the panelists discussion of the cybersecurity challenges facing connected cars and best practices for addressing these risks.
