In the second of our podcasts on autonomous vehicles, I speak to Phil Yannella, the co-practice leader of Ballard Spahr’s Privacy and Data Security Group, about security and regulatory issues around driverless vehicles.
In his capacity at the firm, Phil advises clients on the transfer, storage, and use of digital information, and has advised automobile companies on compliance with evolving cybersecurity and data privacy standards.
In the podcast, the pair discuss security issues, such the potential for hacking and data theft of driverless cars and trucks, as well as the state of the regulatory environment for this new technology both here in the U.S. and around the world.
