Alphabet publishes drivers guide on security and privacy

Alphabet has published a free guide covering the latest developments in threats faced by drivers around cyber security and privacy, personal safety and vehicle security.

Alphabet Security Guide

The Alphabet guide helps brief drivers on new and traditional security threats.

Published following recent RAC figures showing car thefts have risen by a third as thieves become more adept at overcoming in-car anti-theft technology, the five-page guide covers three areas of security risk to drivers; outlining how criminals exploit them, suggesting ways in which drivers can protect themselves and offering advice on what to do if they should become a victim:

John Chuhan, chief risk officer of Alphabet, said: “Drivers now need to be more aware of and vigilant against vehicle crime than has been the case in recent years. It’s taken criminals more than 20 years to turn the tide of car crime briefly in their favour but if history is any guide, the automotive industry will anticipate and respond successfully to each new attempt by the ‘bad guys’ to exploit new advances in technology.”

The guide is available as a free download at www.alphabet.co.uk.For more of the latest industry news, click here.
