The House Energy and Commerce Committee will hold a hearing to consider a draft legislation concerning vehicle data privacy and cybersecurity. The bill would require vehicle manufacturers to establish privacy policies and would prohibit vehicle data hacking. However, the bill provides only limited enforcement of the privacy and cybersecurity provisions. EPIC has previously recommended safeguards for vehicle event data recorders (EDRs) and urged the Transportation Department to protect driver privacy. EPIC has written on the privacy and security implications of the "Internet of Things," which includes cars.
