Cyber threats have risen across the entire value chain of connected cars. An end-to-end cyber security solution is needed to prevent this and must be adopted across the 5Cs: (1) content (software and data) from (2) cloud to (3) connectivity to (4) car to (5) chipset. It is key for OEMs to establish a cyber security process for connected cars to identify, assess and mitigate potential security vulnerabilities, threats and attacks. Mitigation against any of these requires a pre-determined process that can accommodate preventative and corrective actions such as monitoring the vehicle and sending regular status updates to sub-systems. If a security breach does occur, OEMs should have a rapid and globally scalable incident response plan in place. With increasing attack surfaces and zero-day attacks, static human-driven measures are no longer sufficient and instead artificial intelligence and machine learning should be used to identify potential vehicles that are vulnerable to attacks and proactively quarantine those vehicles on a global scale. The identified vehicles can have their vehicle-access controls locked and a global campaign for a preventative security patch can be pushed out as a software update using over-the-air (OTA) technology.

Key Take-Aways:

  1. How to create an automotive cyber security plan from reactive to proactive threat-mitigation implementation?
  2. How to use artificial intelligence to quarantine potentially vulnerable vehicles on a global scale?
  3. How to secure software and content delivery end-to-end using over-the-air technology?
