PRINCETON, NJ—No longer just a subject of the science fiction genre, fears regarding cybersecurity and motor vehicles are a present reality demanding attention, concern, and an educated response. On October 5, NAFA Fleet Management Association (NAFA) will host a webinar on the current and future aspects of cybersecurity that affect all drivers.

The webinar, Fleet Management and the Connected Vehicle, takes place on Wednesday, October 5 at 10:30am.

“Cars and trucks today are more like ‘computers on wheels,’ as they rely more and more on technology for performance and convenience than ever before,” said NAFA CEO Phillip E. Russo, CAE. “For fleet professionals, the rapid growth of vehicle connectivity presents challenges, as well as opportunities. For all drivers, the way North American roadways — and indeed, global roadways — function will be drastically different sooner than anyone imagines. This is a conversation that NAFA has a duty to be part of.”

Speakers for this webinar will be:

Patrick O’Connor—President of Kent & O’Connor; NAFA’s Legislative Counsel in Washington D.C.
Jeff Jeter—Fleet Manager, Chesterfield County; NAFA Vice President
Oleg Cytowicz—Global Fleet Lead Senior Analyst NA Fleet Ops, Unilever; NAFA’s Board of Delegates Vice Chair
Robert Martinez – Deputy Commissioner, NYPD; NAFA’s U.S. Government Representative

Attendees of the webinar will learn about the distinction between security concerns and privacy issues, the contents of the NHTSA/FBI March 2016 bulletin, the need for fleet access to OBD-II Port access, how NAFA is contributing to the cybersecurity debate and more.
