Panasonic and McAfee build Vehicle SOC to commercialise Vehicle Security Monitoring
To protect connected vehicles around the world against cyber-attacks, the companies will build vehicle Security Operation Centres that enable accurate detection and early response to attacks and help strengthen Cybersecurity measures in the automotive industry.
Panasonic has already been operating Security Operation Centres for factories since 2016 to protect systems and networks that manage and control factory equipment and production processes against cyber-attacks – prior to Security Operation Centre for automobiles.
For automobiles, they have developed a Automotive Intrusion Detection System that mounts on a vehicle, detects the occurrence of a cyber-attack and the type of attack, and transmits analysis data to the Vehicle Security Operation Centre and a Security Information and Event Management System that analyses and visualizes a large amount of data received from the Automotive Intrusion Detection System in the Vehicle Security Operation Centre.
McAfee supports world-class Security Operation Centres and Managed Security Services (MSSs), and has the know-how cultivated by building and operationally supporting numerous Security Operation Centres.
The Company will bring these together and start building Vehicle Security Operation Centres to monitor cyber-attacks that may be conducted against vehicles around the world.
With the innovative development of autonomous driving, the advancement of digitalization, and the increasing number of connected cars, the risk of cyber-attacks against automobiles is increasing every year. It has become urgent for the automotive industry to establish mechanisms to protect and monitor vehicles from cyber-attacks.
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 mobility society.
