Changing Landscape of Connected Vehicle Market to Reach $1.2 Trillion by 2020, With 1.5 Million Professionals -- Candidates for Training

DETROIT, MI--(Marketwired - September 16, 2015) - Much of today's workforce does not have the knowledge or skills to make connected vehicles safe from cyber security attacks, threatening to cost companies billions of dollars.

According to an unreleased report by Booz Allen Hamilton, the market will reach $1.2 trillion by 2020 in anticipated revenue for connected vehicle mobile operators," said Ron Hesse, CEO of, which produces on-demand seminars. "That same report will show 1.5 million professionals in transportation worldwide are candidates for some level of connected vehicle training and education."

As the connected vehicle market grows so do concerns about cyber security safety. Attacks have already resulted in expensive vehicle recalls, which also can erode consumer trust. To prevent those trends from continuing those 1.5 million professionals must be trained and certified.

"The workforce today needs very different skills and training than previously necessary," said Elaina Farnsworth, CEO, Mobile Comply. "Reports from the Center for Automotive Research (CAR) show that universities were historically focused in areas specific to mechanical engineering, IT and more traditional degree programs. But, the training required for the future workforce is a convergence of technologies from automotive, technology, security and connectivity."

Farnsworth is a recognized expert in the field of connected vehicle education and certification. Her expertise in training and certification launched the only connected vehicle certification program with SAE International and the Connected Vehicle Trade Association.
