The passenger car has been a transportation staple for decades. What was once a hunk of steel controlled by the driver now answers to an additional master – the computer system that operates much of its internal systems. That system relies on proprietary algorithms to create value for the auto maker and the driver. However, after a few examples of rogue, unbridled automation in cars, the public has woken up to the underlying algorithms that make these smart pieces of machinery work. Some may even shut off features designed to assist the driver, an unintended consequence to the potential for autonomous vehicles to make us safer.
In an era when the stakes are life and death, the vehicles with the trusted algorithms will win, says Peter Sondergaard, senior vice president and global head of research at Gartner, in the opening keynote at Gartner Symposium/ITxpo in Barcelona, Spain. In order to create this level of trust and protect their systems, organizations must change their risk management to address security, safety, and quality.
“ 65% of CEOs say their risk management approach is falling behind.”
Organizations should move their investments from 90 percent prevention and 10 percent detection and response to a 60/40 split. To do this, address the following areas:Notably, 65 percent of CEOs say their risk management approach is falling behind. In a new reality where security breaches come at a daily rate, Mr. Sondergaard said, “We must move away from trying to achieve the impossible perfect protection and instead invest in detection and response."
