“Vehicle Cyber Security: Where the Rubber Meets the Code” Topic for November 17

Stacy Prowell, director of the Oak Ridge National Laboratory Vehicle Security Center, will present “Vehicle Cyber Security: Where the Rubber Meets the Code” at the next UT Science Forum Friday, November 17.

Modern vehicles include an average of 100 million lines of computer code and 60 control units. With automotive manufacturers adding an increasing array of safety, entertainment, navigation, and autonomous driving features, the potential threats for vehicle cyber attacks are rapidly expanding. Prowell will discuss the current state of security and some of the work being done to address the problems.

The UT Science Forum takes place Friday, November 17 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. in the Thompson-Boling Arena Cafe (located at 1600 Phillip Fulmer Way), Room A.

Guests are encouraged to bring their lunch or purchase it from the arena. Each presentation is followed by a Q&A. The event is free and open to the public.

We have temporary parking passes available for our guests who do not have UT parking passes. An RSVP is required for the pass. To request a pass, please email Amanda Womac.
