ERI's John Shegerian Shares Insights on Data Protection Issues in the Age of Smart Cars at AutoMobility LA 2019

John Shegerian, Co-Founder and Executive Chairman of ERI, the nation's leading fully integrated IT and electronics asset disposition provider and cybersecurity-focused hardware destruction company, described best practices for "data protection in the age of smart cars" at the Securing Mobility Summit earlier this week at the AutoMobility LA 2019.

One of the key conferences at the Los Angeles Convention Center leading up to the LA Auto Show, the Securing Mobility Summit at AutoMobility LA tackles some of the hardest security challenges in the global transportation sector. Featuring presentations by world-class experts in security engineering, offensive network attack, industrial espionage, counterterrorism, robotics, virtualization, and resilient systems.

Shegerian introduced attendees to the urgent need for the automotive sector to pay attention to hardware hacking and digital privacy issues surrounding the technology in smart cars today, often containing private data.

"Cars today store private information about our personal lives, such as GPS data about our homes and offices, the routes we take and when we take them, the names of our family members, phone numbers, data from our cell devices, and other details," said Shegerian. "We need to look very closely at what happens to this data when our car is sold as a used vehicle, when we replace tech with new devices or when the car reaches its end of life. Where does all the data go? At ERI we deal with these issues every day as they pertain to consumer electronics. Most people today know how important it is to protect digital data on phones, laptops, tablets, etc. It's time we started treating our cars the same way."

"We're very grateful to John and all the other excellent speakers we had this year at the Securing Mobility Summit," said event organizer Jeffrey Carr, Founder of Suits and Spooks and the Securing Mobility Summit series and author of ?Inside Cyber Warfare: Mapping the Cyber Underworld.' "The feedback that I received from our attendees was universally positive and thought-provoking presentations like John's have people already looking forward to returning next year."

Carr added that Suits and Spooks will also hosting its 10th anniversary security summit at the International Spy Museum in Washington DC from February 6-7, 2020, featuring a keynote address by retired US Army General Stan McChrystal.
