"Whether we're turning vehicles into wifi-connected hotspots or equipping them with millions of lines of code to become fully automated, it is important that they are protected against cyber-attacks", said Lord Callanan, a minister in the Department for Transport.

"Risks of people hacking into the technology might be low, but we must make sure the public is protected".

The list is created to address public fears that hackers might be able to target connected cars, either to steal personal data or for other malicious purposes. Similarly, companies need to be on top of security risks in their own procedures and in dealing with their supply chain.

"Enable parents and guardians to give consent for their child's data to be used".

The legislation, the government said, will put the United Kingdom at the centre of the new technological developments in smart and autonomous vehicles, while ensuring safety and consumer protection remain at the heart of the emerging industry.

"We need to introduce a new insurance product that if a vehicle is being driven autonomously then the insurance company would be liable", says Callanan, "this would be a new emerging form of insurance that would also be a great product for the United Kingdom to sell around the world".

Alongside this, the UK Government said it was also planning new legislation governing insurance for self-driving cars. This forms part of the government's drive to ensure the United Kingdom harnesses the economic and job-creating potential of new tech industries.

"It is essential that all parties involved in the manufacturing supply chain, from designers and engineers, to retailers and senior level executives, are provided with a consistent set of guidelines that support this global industry", it added.

They quoted Jeff Williams, chief technology officer of the security firm Contrast Security, as saying, "Cars are vulnerable because they were never built with defenses in mind".

Hawes said autonomous vehicles promise to reduce road accidents dramatically and save thousands of lives.

Technology is rapidly changing the vehicle industry.

"The new cyber security guidelines will be a key step in achieving this goal, with the security of the car's network paramount to the safety of the driver and those in the car's vicinity".

In an effort to combat the issue before it's too late, the United Kingdom government has issued a set of cyber security guidelines for connected and autonomous vehicles in order to better protect them from hackers and cyberattacks.
