While these new vehicles offer a host of modern features, hackers can target smart cars "to access personal data, steal cars that use keyless entry, or even take control of technology for malicious reasons", the release said.

The government says it will continue to collaborate with the auto industry to ensure vehicles are protected against cyberattacks - a move welcomed by many in the cyber security sector.

The measures are aimed at ensuring engineers developing smart vehicles toughen up cyber protections and design out cyber security risks.

The government is also looking at a broader programme of work announced in this year's Queen's speech under the landmark Autonomous and Electric Vehicles Bill that aims to create a new framework for self-driving vehicle insurance. Lord Callanan explained that new #data protection laws will help to protect smart auto owners from hackers.

At the same time the Government wants to make the United Kingdom a world leader in self-driving technology.

"Whether we're turning vehicles into wifi-connected hotspots or equipping them with millions of lines of code to become fully automated, it is important that they are protected against cyber-attacks", said Lord Callanan, a minister in the Department for Transport.

Auto manufacturers will have to better protect internet-connected vehicles from cyber attacks under new Government guidance, autoexpress said. The goal is to provide "all parties involved in the manufacturing and supply chain. with a consistent set of guidelines".

"Our key principles give advice on what organizations should do, from the board level down, as well as technical design and development considerations".

Mike Hawes, the chief executive of the UK's Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, said the government's guidelines would help the U.K.be among the first countries to "grasp the benefits of this exciting new technology".

The new guidance dictates that manufacturers will need to design-out cyber threats as part of new vehicle development work.

They believe that the new auto technology could boost the economy and deliver thousands of jobs.

Raj Samani, chief scientist and fellow at cyber security firm McAfee, said that with the UK's strong manufacturing heritage, it's unsurprising that the government has high hopes for the United Kingdom to be a global leader in driverless vehicle technology.

"There are huge safety advantages for the public in using this technology, that's one of the key drivers of it", Lord Callanan said. "We need to introduce a new insurance product that if a vehicle is being driven autonomously then the insurance company would be liable", says Callanan, "this would be a new emerging form of insurance that would also be a great product for the United Kingdom to sell around the world".
