GAO: NHTSA must prepare for vehicle cyberattacks.

The Washington Times (4/26, Blake, 269K) analyzes a 61-page report from the GAO that urges the Transportation Department to boost “its cybersecurity efforts as the automobile industry continues to roll out computer-assisted cars that pose the possibility of being hacked.” According to the report, while NHTSA “has taken steps towards addressing cybersecurity issues raised by modern automobiles, the agency has stalled with respect to ensuring the nation is able to reel back from a hypothetical hack attack.”

        The Hill (4/26, Zanona, 884K) and Federal Computer Week (4/26, Spinosa, 263K) also report on the story.
