Last month, the BC Freedom of Information and Privacy Association (FIPA) released a report examining the complex telematics systems found in modern cars. Systems that can do everything from unlocking doors, providing navigation, streaming music, reading your text messages, to making calls on your behalf. The Report is entitled The Connected Car: Who’s in the Driver’s Seat?
The Report describes the types of data that connected cars collect, much of which is personal information about driving habits and identifies both privacy and security issues arising from the collection of this data.
