Much like every other industry, the automotive industry is facing significant challenges due to digitalization. Data coming from various connected sources is only getting bigger, making it significantly more challenging to track and protect the connected car servers against cyber threats. The only way to sort through the data and identify possible attacks is by leveraging artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies for behavioral analysis for each piece of data. Here is why artificial intelligence technologies offer us the best chance to defend against cyber-criminals.
The Issue: Big Data Overload
The proliferation of data because of digitalization processes across basically every industry, and it is not going to slow down any time soon. At today’s current rate, the number of smart connected devices in the world will continue to grow – which means more data to be shared, collected, analyzed, and stolen. The mass influx and possession of data is a huge problem, as we don’t know how to manage it or combat the attacks against it. This is where artificial intelligence comes in.
Our Response: Artificial Intelligence
Artificial intelligence has stormed into the world, offering a tremendous promise: arming computers with human-like knowledge. The implementation of these technologies has already left a significant impact on multiple other industries, but you might be wondering how it’s affecting the automotive industry? In the automotive industry, data overload poses a massive problem with the connected car becoming more of an appliance than a real physical product, due to its regularly being updated and synced. Due to these cars being continuously interconnected through back-end servers, mobile apps, and service data, it makes it much more difficult to make sense of all of the data that is being received.
The Effect of AI
With the latest technology with artificial intelligence, they can now use sophisticated analytics to create full-on visibility into telematics data. This allows AI to collect data, thus enabling cybersecurity intelligence technologies to run analytics to detect a potential threat. From here, artificial intelligence can:
– Run threat inspection
– Identify communication of patterns to find any anomalies in the vehicle and its activity
– Inspect behavioral patterns for the driving activity of a car or the entire fleet.
Technology like this can be implemented as a form of transportation security, driver or passenger cameras, or just for security purposes in general. Artificial intelligence is one of our best bets to combat big data overload and dangerous cybercriminals who might try to take advantage of it.
