In an effort to create workable guidelines and practices to help organizations manage cyber risks, the National Institute of Standards and Technology last week released a Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity.
In a recent announcement, the United States Department of Transportation’s (“DOT”) National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (“NHTSA”) endorsed the future implementation of vehicle-to-vehicle (“V2V”) communication technology in light vehicles (e.g., passenger vehicles and light trucks). This technology, which is seen by some as the future of vehicle safety, allows vehicles to exchange location and speed information with other vehicles. This information is processed to provide warnings of driving hazards, or even to automatically stop the vehicle.
