Monetizing connected vehicle data in the vehicle security operations center

With the emergence of automobile intelligence in digital cars, the threat surface of the connected ecosystem has dramatically increased. This has led to regulations (e.g. UN R155) to ensure road user safety through a secure cybersecurity management system (CSMS). The vehicle security operations center (or VSOC) is an inherent part of CSMS and aims to detect, analyze and respond to cyber events in a timely manner through the collection and analysis of in-vehicle logs. Although the focus is on assimilating cyber-relevant logs, user/product behavioral data can also be bundled and analyzed. These logs act as a basis to offer customized products and services to the user.
