Korean transport security technology firm AutoCrypt has joined the Corporate Partnership Board of the International Transport Forum (ITF). As an ITF corporate partner, AutoCrypt will bring their expertise to ITF work on intelligent transport systems, digitalisation and safety.
AutoCrypt is a mobility security provider dedicated to the safety of future transportation. Founded in 2007 as an in-house venture of former ITF corporate partner Penta Security Systems, AutoCrypt became a separate entity in 2019 as its presence expanded worldwide.
Recognised by industry new platform TU-Automotive as the Best Auto Cybersecurity Product/Solution of 2019 and a finalist for Automotive Tech Company of the Year 2020, AutoCrypt provides core security components to protect the communication of connected vehicles and in Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) more broadly.
The ITF is an intergovernmental organisation with 63 member countries that facilitates global dialogue for better transport. It acts as a think tank for member governments and organises an Annual Summit of transport ministers. The Corporate Partnership Board is the ITF’s platform for engaging with the private sector and enriching global transport policy discussion with a business perspective.
Young Tae Kim, Secretary-General of the ITF, said: “Smart, innovative transport solutions for the 21st century will only work if the data they rely on is secured in the best possible ways. The ITF is proud to work with AutoCrypt as one of the global leaders in this critical area for the future of mobility. We look forward to exploring the challenges and the solutions to this rapidly evolving field with the help of AutoCrypt’s world-class expertise and innovative prowess.“
Daniel ES Kim, CEO of AutoCrypt, said: “Autonomous driving and smart mobility have been making great headway in technological development. However, without proper security architecture in place, we are only increasing the risk of data exposure. With the Corporate Partnership Board, our hope is to collaborate with other innovative corporations to highlight the importance of secure transportation and mobility.”
