A new cyber security standard for developing technology incorporated into self-driving cars has been released by the British Standards Institute.

Working with academics and experts from leading businesses in the car industry including Jaguar Land Rover, Ford and Bentley, as well as the National Cyber Security Centre, and funded by the Department for Transport, the British Standards Institute developed the guidance to set a marker for those developing self-driving car technology.

The UK market for connected and automated vehicles is forecast to be worth up to £52bn by 2035.

Jesse Norman, future of mobility Minister, said: "As vehicles get smarter, major opportunities for the future of mobility increase. But so too do the challenges posed by data theft and hacking.

"This cybersecurity standard should help to improve the resilience and readiness of the industry, and help keep the UK at the forefront of advancing transport technology."
