Cobo Center – Detroit, Michigan


Attendees raved about the first Billington Automotive Cybersecurity Summit in 2016!

 “The Billington Automotive CyberSecurity Summit was truly the most useful cyber event I have ever attended.”

Kristin Judge, Director of Special Projects, National Cybersecurity Alliance

 “If the 500-strong crowd at the Billington Global Automotive Cybersecurity Summit here today is any indication, cybersecurity now has the automobile industry’s undivided attention.”

— Bradford Wernle, AUTOMOTIVE NEWS

The 2nd summit on August 3 in Detroit, MI will be the top leadership summit on auto cybersecurity convening a who’s who of speakers in the automotive cybersecurity ecosystem. The inaugural summit included, among others, the CEO of GM Mary Barra and the U.S. Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx, resulting in media coverage from The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal and attracting 500 attendees. NOTE: Attendees must be citizens of the U.S. or allied nations to attend this event.

The 2018 Billington Automotive Cybersecurity Summit theme is:

Cybersecurity: The Cornerstone of Autonomous and Connected Vehicle Safety

Ensuring connected and autonomous cars are safe from cyber attack is the linchpin for consumer acceptance of this transformative technology.  In his keynote at the 2016 Billington Automotive Cybersecurity Summit, Secretary  Foxx warned that connected and autonomous vehicles will succeed only if cybersecurity best practices are adopted by all 18 world automakers.

Sen. Gary Peters, D-MI, told attendees at the Billington Summit that when it comes to cybersecurity, “Failure is not an option. The auto industry is going to have the highest bar of anybody in cyber.”  To achieve that cyber safety standard, the industry will have to collaborate with other OEMS, and with suppliers, the research community, and more.

That collaboration is why the 2nd Billington Automotive Cybersecurity Summit will include the entire ecosystem of automotive cybersecurity:

  • OEMs
  • Automotive suppliers
  • Service providers
  • Regulators
  • Disruptors
  • Dealers
  • Department of Defense
  • International players, and much more!

Don’t miss sponsoring or exhibiting at THE automotive cybersecurity summit of the year that will bring together senior decision-makers from U.S. and allied governments, industry, and academia to address solutions to secure today’s connected and tomorrow’s autonomous vehicles.
