A Vehicle SOC is essential to automotive cybersecurity

Automotive- Specific Vehicle Security Operations Centers (VSOCs) address the complexity of cyberattacks targeting OT networks, such as connected vehicles and their components or services.

An effective Vehicle SOC allows stakeholders to monitor vehicles, fleets, and the entire connected vehicle infrastructure in near real-time, offering cyber threat detection throughout the lifecycle of a vehicle. It is a critical element in ensuring the safety and security of vehicles, services, fleets, and road users.

Operating at the core of any VSOC, the Upstream Platform offers unparalleled automotive cybersecurity capabilities by detecting known and unknown cyber threats, and improves operational efficiencies by providing automated workflows adaptable to the changing cyber threat landscape.

Multiple Vehicle SOC approaches

There are three recommended approaches to building a VSOC. First, organizations with an existing enterprise SOC can expand it to encompass smart mobility. Second, create a new and dedicated vehicle SOC. And third, outsource the VSOC to a managed security service provider (MSSP) that has automotive-related security capabilities in addition to IT security capabilities. The decision as to which approach a connected vehicle stakeholder should take needs to factor in operational capabilities, budgets, and risk profile of the organization. Upstream’s platform complies with all three options and powers the VSOC at its core.

Understanding Vehicle SOC architecture

The Vehicle SOC fuses together disciplines from the IT and OT sides of the enterprise as monitoring of all aspects of the service are needed. The Upstream Platform focuses on the OT element and combines the ability to aggregate and normalize multiple proprietary data feeds, digital twin profiling of the connected vehicle environment, and powerful AI-powered detection modeling, along with security analysis and customized mobility incident alerts. The platform’s pre-built integrations with leading IT SIEM and workflow solutions enable a true end-to-end VSOC.

Leverage Upstream in your Vehicle SOC

The Upstream’s Platform has many pre-built integrations in place and is designed to work hand in hand with existing automitive SOC products such as SIEM solutions. When deployed together with a SIEM or SOAR solution, Upstream provides both automotive cybersecurity detection and additional non-cyber smart-mobility use cases for deep, contextually rich investigation of automotive targeted incidents. Typically, the Upstream Platform is utilized as a detection engine with the SIEM handling ticketing, workflow, and case management functions.
