About the Event:

We are proud to announce the 2nd Annual Billington Automotive Cybersecurity Summit on August 3 following the highly successful first leadership summit in 2016.

That summit drew nearly 500 attendees from across the auto ecosystem and widespread coverage in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times and on C-SPAN.  In 2016, Automotive News stated, “If the 500-strong crowd at the Billington Automotive Cybersecurity Summit here today is any indication, cybersecurity now has the automobile industry’s undivided attention.”  With connected cars on the road and autonomous vehicles being rigorously tested, the auto industry has advanced rapidly even since 2016.

In 2018, more than ever, cybersecurity has grown to be the key foundation to the future safety of connected and autonomous vehicles.

Daniel Ammann, President of General Motors, will deliver the opening keynote on this summit theme:  “Cybersecurity:  The Cornerstone of Autonomous and Connected Vehicle Safety.”
