As trucking companies consider electrification of their fleets, the FBI warns of heightened cyberattack risks due to the expanded attack surfaces presented by electric vehicles.
During the American Trucking Association’s Technology & Maintenance Council’s 2023 Summer Conference, experts urged the transport sector to prepare for threats from various sources, including hackers, terrorists, and foreign nations.
