C2A Security, a global company involved in automotive cybersecurity, has named Prof. Alan Taub to its advisory board.

Prof. Taub served as General Motors vice president for Global Research & Development. Prior to his 11-year tenure in GM's R&D division, Taub spent 15 years working in R&D at General Electric, where he registered 26 patents, and 8 years at Ford Motor Company where he worked on safety systems development. Taub is presently a faculty member of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Michigan and serves as technical advisor for the strategic venture capital fund Auto Tech Ventures, and is also on the Innovation Advisory Board for Samsung Electronics.

Prof. Taub, said, 'The automotive industry became aware of its vulnerability to cyber-attacks about a dozen years ago when university researchers demonstrated wireless penetration of key vehicle systems. I was at GM at that time and we immediately established a cybersecurity initiative, where key expertise was clearly needed from outside the traditional supply base to address this challenge. That is when I first met Michael Dick, who was then supporting our efforts, and later founded C2A Security. I found that C2A is developing a leading-edge suite of tools that the OEM's and Tier 1's can tailor to their particular systems. It is personally rewarding to be working with C2A to solve this key industry problem.'
