market? 21 Jan 2011 Cybersecurity remains an unsolved issue for the =

electric vehicle (EV) industry, particularly regarding the recharging =

infrastructure that is being put in place to serve consumer use of =

these vehicles, concludes a recent report from Pike Research.

The report finds that a paltry $432 million is being invested in EV =

cybersecurity over the next five years, compared to the billions of =

dollars that have been invested in EV development and production.

The analysis finds that the largest segment for EV cybersecurity =

investment will be in smart charging management, which will see $274 =

million in worldwide investment between 2011 and 2015. Other key =

market segments include data analytics and customer information =

Cybersecurity Is A Main Challenge For The Electric-Vehicle Market
by Renew Grid 21 January 2011

According to a new report from Pike Research, one of the major =

challenges that remains to be resolved in the electric-vehicle (EV) =

marketplace is implementing cybersecurity measures to ensure that EV =

charging transactions are safe and private.

"The prevailing philosophy of the EV industry has been to 'build =

first, secure later,'" says Bob Lockhart, a senior analyst with Pike =

Research. "This poses many risks for financial transactions, customer
privacy, and the integrity and reliability of the grid infrastructure.
Utilities and key vendors are just beginning to focus on addressing =

these issues, and the security solutions implemented will have a =

strong influence on the success and credibility of EVs as a =

replacement for internal combustion engine vehicles."

Lockhart adds that several important areas for EV cybersecurity =

investment include securing financial transactions that are required =

for EV recharging, implementing secure and hardened IT environments =

on EV service equipment and distribution-grid hardware, and complying =

with applicable data-privacy laws and other regulations.

The report also states that investment in EV cybersecurity systems =

will total $432 million from 2011 to 2015. Pike Research notes that =

the largest segment for EV cybersecurity investment will be smart-
charging management, which will garner $274 million in worldwide =

revenue between 2011 and 2015. Other key market segments will include
data analytics and customer information management.

so lets see, we've got:

"Range anxiety, Toxic Batteries, Charing from coal, Silence a problem for
the deaf, Lack of charging points, Cost effectiveness"

and now we've got "Cyber security" issues. Is there any other angle we
haven't seen yet ?

As interesting and relevant as it might be to those trying to make a
business out of charging (commendable) it is yet another angle of attack
for the scaremongers.

I'll just wait for the op-eds on EV's being a security minefield and how
you're identity will be fair game if you even think about charging it.
lol.

Did I mention that your girlfriend will dump you and your beer will go flat
too if you buy an EV?

Wait, that's usually if you do a conversion that takes twice as much money
and 4 times as much time as you thought it would..... :)
