Vehicles have become an integrated part of the “personal ecosystem”—offering connectivity, entertainment, convenience. This is a period of transition for the automotive industry, including yet extending beyond its traditional focus on performance, style, and safety. As such, a large automotive manufacturer recognized the need to break down stovepipes and address the cyber threats related to the vehicle ecosystem.
A cross-functional team of Booz Allen automotive and cybersecurity experts conducted an organizational assessment identifying the risks and opportunities for Vehicle Cybersecurity and a technical assessment of the cyber risks and challenges of the manufacturer’s connected vehicle. These assessments led the client to name a new product cybersecurity leader and create a product cybersecurity organization, which the Booz Allen team continues to support. Our continued efforts focus on: Defining the organizational model, prioritizing and addressing critical product risks, and shaping the new team’s strategic approach to fundamentally change how the company and the industry address product cybersecurity.
Today’s automobile is more like your iPhone than your grandfather’s Cadillac. As vehicles are increasingly connected, OEMs must adapt to emerging cybersecurity needs. Vehicle networks—like all IT systems—are susceptible to manipulation and disruption, and risks range from vehicle safety to exploitation of personal information. Securing the components of the vehicle is especially challenging, as automotive manufacturers have a long list of suppliers, vendors, internal teams, partners, and even the consumer sharing responsibility for various elements of cybersecurity.
“Why is vehicle cybersecurity so critical? Because cars are more connected than ever before. Today’s automobile is more like your iPhone than your grandfather’s Cadillac.”
Booz Allen built its assessment by first helping the clients engage the challenge with a comprehensive view. We mapped the connected vehicle ecosystem to understand where potential vulnerabilities exist and to simplify the complexity of internal and external stakeholders and suppliers. From this common viewpoint, our team identified current and emerging risks and opportunities—across technical, organizational and strategic levels.
The connected vehicle landscape is evolving—expanding to include new industries like telecommunications and consumer electronics into the automotive space. Booz Allen has a record of providing cybersecurity, strategy, and innovation expertise to the traditional and newly redefined automotive industries. Our strategists, data analysts, and information technology experts deliver industry-leading capabilities coupled with a clear understanding of the client’s business opportunities.
