Eran Kahana Interviewed for SmarterMSP.com Article on Self-Driving Cars

August 6, 2019

Eran Kahana, attorney in Maslon's Corporate & Securities and Technology, IP & Media Groups, was interviewed on July 17, 2019 for a Smarter MSP article titled, "MSPs can protect self-driving cars and their passengers." The article discusses self-driving cars and other autonomous vehicles and how managed service providers (MSPs) have an opportunity to become guardians of their security.

"It is the designer's responsibility for any malfunction a vehicle experiences, but if there is an overriding or intervening action on the part of the operator, then it is the operator's fault," Eran states. When describing obstacles that MSPs may face he adds, "Hacking into an autonomous vehicle can cause enormous harm. Imagine disabling a computer that interfaces with the brake system. It's a potentially life-threatening situation versus hacking a computer network."
