UK government announces guidelines for connected and autonomous vehicles

The UK government's Department for Transport has released a set of guidelines that manufacturers must follow to ensure cyber security of connected and autonomous vehicles.

The Department for Transport recommends that security of connected and autonomous vehicles should be managed throughout their lifetime.

Along with the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI), the Department for Transport has created eight new principles that will govern the cyber security of connected and autonomous vehicles that will hit the roads in the future.
