Faculty Development Academy on Automobile Security - Car Penetration Testing
Two academies on 8/10 and 8/12. Register for the 8/12 event.In-person at the STEAM Carnival at Mall of America
Faculty from both cyber and non-cyber fields, including Automotive Technology, Information Technology, Automation and Manufacturing, and Computer Science are encouraged to attend this event.
Most modern vehicles connect to devices around them through Vehicle to Everything (V2X) technologies. As vehicles advance with more autonomous capabilities, digital systems, and automation, their attack surface increases exponentially, making them increasingly vulnerable to cyber attacks. Automobile hacking is a fascinating area of penetration testing and hacking.
This one-day academy will expand faculty knowledge and the ability to incorporate new cybersecurity content in existing classes. The academy incorporates demonstration and hands-on instruction, emphasizing participants’ ability to re-create workshop conditions in their classroom. Attendees will need to bring a laptop.
