Vehicle and embedded systems cybersecurity is a growing field to complete research in based on this. One relevant, significant attack and the researchers have their 15 minutes of fa
Phishing data sourcesA cloud is a useful tool for many functions. This has been an asset when used to increase computing processing power. One instance of this has been with databases.

In the metro-Detroit area, the primary industry and revenue force is the auto industry. This is clear due to the number and concentration of the vehicle manufacturer headquarters, assembly plants, and admin offices. As these vehicles are designed and engineered, they require cybersecurity testing. This ensures that as much as possible the vehicles are safe and secure from being successfully attacked. Cybersecurity for present connected vehicles and future autonomous vehicles
The attackers and malware coders have a focus. These persons are looking for data to steal and sell or manipulate.
