September 14 2017 - CCoE Unveils IBM's Vehicle Security Solution at Major Automotive Show in Frankfurt

The IBM Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (CCOE) has presented IBM's industry-first solution for protecting connected vehicles at the 67th Frankfurt Annual International Motor Show (IAA 2017, September 14-17). The conference hosted around 1000 exhibitors from 39 countries and well over 800,000 visitors, and the IBM booth was busy with visits from car manufacturers, suppliers and automotive fans. The highlight of IBM's presentation was an end-to-end demonstration of an AI-based solution that includes an in-vehicle smart analytics engine, a cloud-based analytics server, and a SIEM (Security Information and Event Management) layer, based on IBM Security QRadar technology, that analyses vehicle and road-side information and provides prioritized alerts about relevant threats to end users . IBM's demonstration involved running IBM's solution on a real car and integrations with ecosystem partners such as Harman, G&D and Irdeto.
