SOUTHERN PINES, NC--Jan. 21, 2014: Congress is ramping up driver privacy efforts as the U.S. is proposing mandating automotive black boxes by September 2014, that you cannot turn-off, disable, or remove.

So, what's a motorist to do? You can wait for Congress to act or do something now?

Here's a timely option: the AUTOcyb (TM) - is the world's first and only automotive cyber security lock, U.S. patented and globally standardized by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) as IEEE-1616a.

It's designed for post-1996 light vehicles (cars and light trucks) and it simply attaches to the vehicle's interface port located under the steering column.

The AUTOcyb (TM) vehicle connector lock seeks to protect the security, integrity and authenticity of vehicle data.

This connector lockout gives you the reassurance of knowing that you have access control of crash data. The "black box" / Event Data Recorder (EDR) will still work exactly as it is designed to. However, you determine access (within State law) and thus, control how it is used.

Generally, the owner of the vehicle is considered to be the rightful owner; however, data collected without the driver's knowledge has been used in several states when courts subpoenaed crash data in civil and criminal court cases. You "really need" consumer protection to safeguard your data.

Many vehicle purchasers do not know these devices are in their vehicles and most are unaware of the nature and potential use of the information collected. Automotive insurance companies are considering basing policy rates on electronics data. Auto manufacturers could use data to void warranties. The possibilities are endless.

Protect yourself against mischief and misuse. Our view is that when consumers drive off the lot with a new car, they own more than just the vehicle; they own the information their vehicle generates and stores. With our product you hold the key, not automakers or insurance companies.

A global crowd funder campaign at Indiegogo.com seeks to expand the company and raise awareness of the driver privacy issues.

The AUTOcyb ™ is available at AutoCyb or AMAZON.COM.
