EPIC Associate Director Khaliah Barnes will testify at a hearing on "The Internet of Cars" before the House Oversight and Government Reform on Wednesday, November 18, 2015. The hearing will address the safety and privacy issues confronting drivers in vehicles connected to the Internet. EPIC's prepared statement urges Congress to pass legislation establishing privacy and cybersecurity rules to protect driver data and prohibit malicious hacking of connected cars. EPIC states, "New vehicle technologies raise serious safety and privacy concerns that Congress needs to address." EPIC has previously examined the privacy and data security implications of the Internet of Things and the "Internet of Cars", and recommended strong safeguards for consumers.
