The best practices outlined in this document help organizations measure their residual risks better, particularly the safety risks associated with potential cybersecurity issues in motor vehicles and motor vehicle equipment that they design and manufacture. Further, it provides a toolset of techniques they can utilize commensurate to their measured risks, and take appropriate actions to reduce or eliminate them, and in doing so lower the future liabilities these risks represent in terms of safety risks to public and business costs associated with addressing them. In addition, quantitatively positive externalities have been shown to stem from vehicle safety and security measures (Ayres & Levitt, 1998). The high marginal cost of cybersecurity failures (crashes) extend to third parties. Widely accepted adoption of sound cybersecurity practices limits these potential costs and lessens incentives for attempts at market disruption (i.e., signal manipulation, GPS spoofing, or reverse engineering).
