Kaspersky tells UK car giants to secure self-driving vehicles and the factories they're made in

Sam Shead | June 11, 2015
Russian security vendor Kaspersky is eyeing up UK and European car manufacturers as it looks to establish itself as the go-to company when it comes to securing car factories and connected cars.

Since 2012, Kaspersky has had its logo featured prominently on the company's Formula One cars but there's more to it than that.

But now Kaspersky is helping Ferrari engineers both in factorites and on the racetrack to secure the work they do.

Kaspersky has helped Ferrari to update its systems, some of which may have been built decades ago, when the threat landscape was completely different.

This is critical because many Ferraris shipped today come with inbuilt computers that need to be secured to ensure the passenger's safety.

The vendor also provides one of its own employees to Ferrari during certain race weekends.
