ICIT, sponsored by Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee (TX) and in collaboration with ICIT Fellow IOActive, will hold an event at the U.S. House of Representatives to address the growing threat of remote attacks against moving vehicles and the privacy of consumer data captured by automotive systems, in addition to Smartcity security and the general need for IoT security.

The event will include a special Live Screening of the now infamous “Jeep Hack” by top researchers from IOActive, complete with automobile components flown in from the IOActive Research Lab in Seattle, WA to give audience members a rare look at the inner components of today’s high-tech automobile.

The demonstration will be followed by a panel discussion consisting on current and future threats to automotive safety and what can be done from a technology and legislative perspective to mitigate risk, as well as a larger context discussion on the IoT threat landscape and Smart City security.

Following the event, ICIT and IOActive will host a reception at the same room in the U.S. House of Representatives.
