Sector focus




Unprecedented exposure to the demands of a dynamic regulatory, political and security landscape along with fast evolving technologies and mobility models mean that the automotive sector faces distinct strategic challenges. Control Risks works with OEMs and vehicle manufacturers to evaluate the strategic opportunities that will impact their success for decades to come.

Cyber security, third-party providers and consumer privacy have become critical issues for the automotive sector as it navigates the opportunities of digitalisation and complex supply chains.

Regulatory uncertainty creates an increasing need for objective, on-the-ground information that is so essential to decision making. Trust needs to be strengthened, whether from clients, stakeholders or, increasingly, governments and international regulators.
