Senators Markey and Blumenthal Push Automakers to Protect Drivers from Remote Hacking

Senators Edward Markey (D-MA) and Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) have sent letters to 18 automakers asking how each company is protecting drivers from remote hacking. Earlier this year, a reporter detailed his experience driving a hacked Jeep. Markey and Blumenthal have also introduced the SPY Car Act to establish cybersecurity and privacy requirements for new passenger vehicles. EPIC has urged the Transportation Department to protect driver privacy. EPIC has written extensively on interconnected devices, including cars, known as the "Internet of Things" and has also said that "cars should not spy on drivers."
