Dubai set to launch first cyber standard for driverless cars

Dubai Electronic Security Centre (DESC) is set to launch the first cyber security standard for autonomous vehicles (AV) in the region.

The standard will provide requirements and guidelines for the security of driverless cars, and it will be used by the relevant Dubai Government departments to aid them in securing AVs.

The announcement comes as the Dubai Autonomous Transportation Strategy plans to transform 25 percent percent of the total transportation in Dubai to autonomous mode by 2030.

DESC aims to establish standards and policies to safeguard Dubai’s cyberspace as the safest city electronically.

From flying taxis to Batman-style surveillance motorcycles, Dubai is at the centre of innovations that are symbols of the city’s ambitions to be a metropolis of the future.

Known for its futuristic skyline and artificial islands, Gulf emirate Dubai has carved out a place alongside cities like Singapore as a hub for innovative ideas.

Yousuf Al Shaibanai, director general of DESC, said: “Dubai is considered one of the forefront modern examples of evolving and developing cities in the world and it is with great appreciation and aspirations of the wise leadership that has advanced us to utilise disrupting technology such as self-driven cars.
