OEM Panel Tackles Cybersecurity

“We’ve got a great line-up of content this year, but I think a leading concern for the industry will be addressed in the Third-Party Information Security session, which focuses on cybersecurity,” says Lang Ware, AIAG’s director of supply chain products and services. “We’ve been working very closely with the OEMs on standardization of their data security expectations across their supply bases, and the project is moving along nicely. We are excited to bring attendees a panel discussion on this topic, which will include key staff from GM, FCA, Ford, Honda, and Toyota.”

Attendees will also enjoy a presentation on this year’s North American automotive industry forecast and have opportunities to ask questions of OEM representatives and supplier executives. Industry experts will discuss current issues, updates, and solutions applicable to understanding supply chain complexities.

Additional presentations will focus on updates and solutions applicable to privacy, data security, risk management and requirements, and other topics specific to optimizing the supply chain. To conclude the event, a senior-level keynote speaker will be followed by a reception offering another opportunity to network.
