The Department of Homeland Security dedicated this past October as National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM), an annual campaign to raise awareness about the importance of cybersecurity to engage and educate public and private sector partners through various events and initiatives. This effort is aimed to provide people and partners with the tools and resources to stay safe in the face of rising cyber-hacking incidents.
Both HARMAN and NCSAM share a common goal in advancing the dialogue about the importance of cybersecurity and its broader impact on safety from the internet domain to the automotive industry.
Automotive cybersecurity is especially critical as connected cars become mainstream and hit more roads in the near-future.
HARMAN develops ‘defense-in-depth’ solutions to establish a strong security foundation in vehicles. Earlier this year, HARMAN announced its partnership with IBM, G+D Mobile Security and Irdeto, to showcase a multi-vendor automotive cybersecurity solution for OEMs and fleet managers at the IAA New Mobility World. The companies displayed HARMAN’s SHIELD Platform at the event and discussed how it can be integrated with the IBM QRadar Security Intelligence Platform, Irdeto’s ECU protection solution - Cloakware™ Secure Environment and G+D’s Automotive Security Management Framework to cyber-shield connected cars.
Continuing HARMAN’s focus to keep connected cars protected against cyberattacks, including ransomware attempts, this integrated system combines the intellectual and technology expertise of four industry-leading solutions to offer OEMs and fleet managers with complete visibility, detection and mitigation capabilities. HARMAN was also recognized by a leading online technology magazine CIO Review in the article “HARMAN Automotive Cybersecurity - by Samsung: Protecting Connected Vehicles through Visibility” for our strong commitment to provide full vehicle protection against the ever-shifting challenges in the automotive industry.
