Elon Musk knows that if a hacker ever took control of every Tesla and sent them all to Rhode Island, it would spell the end of the company.

It’s a tough challenge, but Tesla has taken several steps to protect itself against such attacks.
During a National Governors Association conference session on innovation held Saturday, North Dakota governor Doug Burgum asked Musk how Tesla protects against hacks. Burgum has a particular interest in this area: he’s served on the board of a number of software companies, and until 2007 he was senior vice president of the Microsoft Business Solutions Group.
