Infographic: Car Hacking Methods & Prevention Tips

Cyber security is a huge issue that affects everyone in today’s interconnected world. We make sure to protect our online identity by changing passwords and keeping business details safe. But there’s one huge vulnerability that most Americans don’t think of securing, and that’s our cars.

Today’s cars contain over 100 electronic control units, most of which are hackable, as demonstrated by Charlie Miller and Chris Valasek in their famous Jeep hack of 2015.
