Panasonic, McAfee agree to join to tackle vehicle cybersecurity

Panasonic and McAfee have agreed to jointly start to establish a vehicle security operations center (SOC) to tackle the ongoing threat of cyberattacks. Both companies jointly creating a SOC to “commercialize vehicle security monitoring services,” with a specific focus on early detection and response.  

While everything from machine learning-based driver assistance, maps, and entertainment apps are being developed in the automotive industry to appeal to modern drivers, cybersecurity is not necessarily being given the same attention, a gap Panasonic and McAfee aim to plug. It is this threat data that McAfee can then contribute to, by providing threat intelligence and general support to the vehicle SOC, which is intended to become a global service.
