Re: Cybersecurity

15 years of cybersecurity for a vehicle? That is not enough time. I am still driving my car which is 17 years old. It is reliable and paid for. I expect it to be on the road for a long time. 15 years is not enough. Vehicles are not something disposable, like a "smart" TV. When properly maintained, they can be around for a very long time. I know someone who has the first generation of a Ford truck, and he still drives it. No, 15 years is not enough time for a vehicle. Considering how long they can last, cybersecurity should be permanent.

Of course, the better option is not even have the need for automobile cybersecurity by not having a vehicle connected to the internet.
