Automotive Cybersecurity Detroit 2024 & AI in Automotive Cybersecurity USA 2024

Our Flagship Cybersecurity Conference Returns to Michigan for its 14th Edition

March 19-21, 2024 - Ann Arbor, MI, United States

'Cybersecurity threats are not static; it's a dynamic environment and constantly changing.'

Every day, there is a new potential threat, and while technology is becoming more and more sophisticated, actors are also becoming more and more intelligent and capable. Now more than ever, cybersecurity is not only valuable, but vital for the automotive industry; there's no way around it.

Last year, ISO/SAE 21434 was new and automotive companies were trying to figure out what it meant; OEMs are now implementing and responding to it. There is now a June/July 2024 deadline by which pretty much all vehicles that are impacted by UN ECE R155/R156 will need to be compliant. And as vehicle autonomy, connectivity and artificial intelligence reduce the level of control and increase exposure to attacks, it has never been more important to strengthen cybersecurity programs, push for internal development and synergy, and be fully aware of emerging threats.

Recognizing automotive cybersecurity is an ever-evolving space, and what was relevant in 2023 might not be relevant in 2024, we're inviting industry professionals that are in charge of making decision and implementing strategies to join us for the 14th Annual Automotive Cybersecurity Detroit 2024 conference, with the objective of exposing you to new ideas and concepts, industry best practices and use cases, and networking opportunities with OEMs, Tier-1s and suppliers of new technologies.

We cannot wait to welcome you to the Sheraton Ann Arbor Hotel on March 19 - 21, 2024 for Automotive Cybersecurity Detroit 2024, as we benchmark the next wave of cybersecurity strategies and technologies, and gather a completely new speaker line-up to deliver practical solutions and learning benefits to you and your team.
