Strong data security in the cloud enables the automotive industry to offer efficiency, scalability, flexibility, productivity, and access to new and innovative technology.
Due to the emergence of a broader ecosystem and rapid advancements in autonomous, connected, electric, and shared technology, automotive OEMs production has been slowing down in recent years. Cloud technology is now heavily integrated into operations to boost emerging business models and fulfillfast-evolving consumer behavior. It also helps to reduce costs, increase agility and enhance scalability for the vehicles of the future.
However, like the cloud size, the attack surfaces are also expanding. Attackers can target cloud platforms causing data loss, breaches, vehicle hacking, and jeopardizing production, for example. This forces the automotive industry to have robust cloud data security.
Cloud data security can be achieved with various methods that allow users to control their sensitive data entirely or partially, whether data is at rest, in motion, within the vehicle, or in the production environment.
