In the second installment of the six-part video series, “The Spark of Innovation,” Alexandra Heckler and Josh Laredo discuss how Booz Allen Hamilton became involved in the auto industry’s quest to define and understand the cyber opportunities and threats surrounding cars of today and tomorrow.

When she was six, Alexandra learned from her father how to take apart and rebuild a ’68 Corvette. “In hindsight, I think ‘my dad was trying to teach me to solve a problem,’” Alexandra recalls. “To figure out ‘what can I do to make it better?’”

Today, Alexandra continues her drive to make things better. At Booz Allen and with help from colleagues like Josh, she worked to stand up and continues to support the Automotive Information Sharing and Analysis Center (Auto-ISAC). Alexandra and Josh are helping automakers make the industry better by collaborating to fight hacking threats and pave the way for safe, self-driving vehicles.
