With self-driving and connected cars emerging as a technology and more connected options being touted at CES 2018, cars are becoming an at-risk IoT device, Josh Jabs, the general manager of IoT solutions at Entrust Datacard, said.

"While there may be other devices, such as connected speakers or washing machines that technically have less security built into them, their privacy and safety risks are much less severe," Jabs said. "If hacked, the car can provide hackers with access to location and destination information, as well as remote access to the car's functions such as braking or steering."
