"Following its release of guidelines for automakers regarding self-driving cars, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has released a similar set of guidelines or 'best practices' for cybersecurity in vehicles, designed to provide guidance for car makers. The best practices document is 22 pages and is non-binding, meaning there's no regulatory imperative requiring that car makers meet these standards. The stated purpose of the document is to help improve car security in the face of hacking attempts and to encourage auto manufacturers to proactively incorporate this kind of thinking in their efforts as a matter of course."
