Commercialising vehicle security monitoring services

Issue 2 2021 News

Panasonic and McAfee have agreed to jointly start building a Vehicle Security Operation Centre (Vehicle SOC) to commercialise vehicle security monitoring services. To protect connected vehicles around the world against cyberattacks, the companies will build vehicle SOCs that enable accurate detection and early response to attacks and help strengthen cybersecurity measures in the automotive industry.

Panasonic has already been operating SOCs for factories since 2016 to protect systems and networks that manage and control factory equipment and production processes against cyberattacks. For automobiles, they have developed an Automotive Intrusion Detection System that mounts on a vehicle, detects the occurrence of a cyberattack and the type of attack, and transmits analysis data to the Vehicle SOC and a Security Information and Event Management System that analyses and visualises a large amount of data received.

McAfee supports SOCs and managed security services (MSSs), and has the expertise cultivated by building and operationally supporting numerous SOCs. The company will bring these together and start building Vehicle SOCs to monitor cyberattacks that may be conducted against vehicles around the world.

With the innovative development of autonomous driving, the advance of digitalisation, and the increasing number of connected cars, the risk of cyberattacks against automobiles is increasing every year. It has become urgent for the automotive industry to establish mechanisms to protect and monitor vehicles from cyberattacks. The Vehicle Security Operation Centre will enable the provision of monitoring services to monitor connected cars around the world and contribute to the development of a safe and secure society.
