OmniAir Consortium is proud to announce that Erik Schetina, Director of Special Projects, INTEGRITY Security Services, Green Hills Software, will serve as the Chair of the newly launched Cybersecurity Working Group. Under Erik’s leadership and direction, there is no doubt that the working group will successfully achieve its goals and objectives.

OmniAir’s understanding of the critical role that cybersecurity plays in protecting connected vehicle technologies from unwanted or unauthorized attacks has prompted the creation of its newest committee. As cities around the country, and globally, continue to deploy connected vehicle technologies, such as onboard and roadside units, it is important to ensure that the units are secure. The focus of the Cybersecurity working group is two-pronged: provide at least a baseline set of principles and best-practices self-assessment for vendors, around which vendors can begin to coalesce for compliance; and develop a detailed and testable specification which will become the basis for OmniAir certification.

“We want to preserve the integrity of the V2X ecosystem,” said Chair Erik Schetina.

OmniAir members currently participating in the group include OnBoard Security, UL, Savari, DEKRA, SGS, INTEGRITY Security Services, ESCRYPT, Aptiv, and HNTB.

The working group’s next meeting is scheduled to take place on Thursday, February 15, 2018 at 10:30 AM ET. OmniAir members with expertise in cybersecurity are welcomed and encouraged to participate in the Cybersecurity Working Group.
