Cardozo isn't overly concerned about event data recorders, because they're limited in what they record and don't broadcast it. However, he is troubled by the amount of information modern infotainment systems might be storing and who has access to it.

“Right now, we have no way of knowing what the manufacturer does with the data,” he said.
