Cyber security of electric vehicle chargers and platforms

19 October 2021 15:15 - 16:00

Smart EV chargers bring plenty of benefits, but poor security oversight as resulted in multiple popular brands having major security flaws that allow a hacker to prevent charging, or worse.

Some public charging networks have also been shown to have flaws, potentially resulting in the destabilising of our power grids.

We’ll review the security issues, how they happened and how to prevent similar problems from occurring in your smart products. Finally, we’ll review emerging legislation that makes cyber security mandatory in smart products in some markets.
