EUROCYBCAR has received the award for Research, Development and Innovation in cybersecurity applied to automotive/mobility from San Sebastian Circuit Spirit. The award recognises the work carried out by the Basque company in the field of cybersecurity and was collected by its CEO, Azucena Hernández, from the hands of the Director of Services of the GAIA Cluster, Cristina Murillo, at the SSCS Sariak Awards ceremony.
EUROCYBCAR, a company based in the Álava Technology Park and Madrid, has developed the first test that measures the cybersecurity of a vehicle and issues a certificate in accordance with UNECE/R155. According to GAIA, the award recognises its R&D “and for having developed and patented a methodology to evaluate, measure and certify the level of cybersecurity of a car, bus, truck, van or motorbike, before there was a European cybersecurity regulation for vehicles. EUROCYBCAR’s work is essential in securing the connected cars already on our roads, and especially in the case of autonomous cars, to prevent hacks and attacks. Cybersecurity is a challenge for this sector because people’s data and privacy are at stake, but most importantly, their lives,” they say.
