Cybersecurity is becoming increasingly important for logistics. We have to only look at the carnage that COVID-19 caused to the logistics infrastructures we have in place and cybercrime (“hacking”) of those networks and systems can reap untold mayhem. I’ve seen an increase in the number of transport events being posted in our directory and here’s our recommended list of transports events this year.

As this year rolls out I’ll be sure to add more recommended events for next year as well.

If you work within this important sector then I’d encourage you to get involved with these events. Some of these would be vital for you to attend.

The automotive industry in China has been the largest in the world in terms of automobile unit production since 2008 and although we saw demand plummet in 2020 due to COVID-19, we can expect their annual production to continue to exceed that of the European Union, United States or Japan.

The China Automotive Cyber Security Summit (ACSS) is one of the larger international events.

If interest to tech professionals within this space the ACSS also facilitates introductions between automotive OEMs, tier 1s and network and cybersecurity solutions provider meeting to discuss ways to secure discovered and potential vulnerabilities

Typical discussions often revolve around enterprise-level safety, upcoming automotive legislation and regulations, end-to-end cloud safety, and many other automotive topics.
