The ASIS Foundation recently announced the findings of research that focuses on autonomous vehicles (AVs) within security contexts.

The research was led by Ishmael Bhila, Peter Lee and Alison Wakefield, and the resulting report, Autonomous Vehicles: Threats, Risks & Opportunities, “serves as a beacon for security practitioners, offering invaluable insights into the challenges and opportunities presented by the rapid advancement of AV technologies,” according to the association.

The report looks at all aspects of AVs (land, air and sea), including threats, risks and opportunities.

“We’ve witnessed the evolution of autonomous vehicle technology since the 1990s,” said principal researcher Alison Wakefield, co-director of the Cybersecurity and Criminology Centre at the University of West London. “While these advancements hold immense potential across various sectors, including commercial, military, and security, they also bring a myriad of risks and challenges. Our report aims to provide security practitioners with valuable insights and recommendations to navigate this complex landscape effectively.”
