Whether you’re for or against connected cars, they’re already becoming much more commonplace in markets around the world. While there’s a lot of convenience inherent in having your vehicle connected to the outside world, it also means that data security is increasingly important.

Just look at the difference between the experience you have with your phone versus your car’s infotainment system (excluding Apple CarPlay or Android Auto), and you’ll get the idea. That kind of disparity isn’t going to work as vehicles get smarter, so BlackBerry and Amazon Web Services (AWS) are teaming up to make them more secure and quicker to adapt.
