Privacy, Compliance, Encrypted Communications, Resilient Networks, and Device Security: Market Analysis and Forecasts
Electric Vehicles are coming! EV manufacturers have production plans, sales forecasts, and they show no inclination to wait for a charging infrastructure to be in place. Meanwhile, consumers have begun to show interest in a vehicle that is kinder to the environment and possibly much less expensive to operate. However, as the industry prepares for a quickly increasing volume of EV sales, solutions to some fundamental business problems for EV recharging have not yet been defined, and utilities and vendors alike are facing the challenge of securing the IT systems associated with EV charging infrastructure.
Several important areas for EV cyber security investment include:
– Securing financial transactions that are required for EV recharging.
– Implementing secure and hardened IT environments on EVSEs and Distribution Grid hardware.
– Secure end-to-end communications throughout the EV infrastructure.
– Authoritative identification of vehicle owners/operators for recharging transactions.
– Compliance with applicable Data Privacy Laws and other regulations.
This Pike Research report presents a detailed analysis of key cyber security risks for EV charging infrastructures based upon three key security standards: ISO 27002:2005 for IT networks, NISTIR 7628 Volume 2 for Personal Data Privacy, and NIST 800-82 for ICS networks. The study includes a comprehensive examination of business requirements, technology issues, and key industry players that are shaping the emerging EV cyber security market. Global revenue forecasts are included through 2015, including segmentation by region, security segment, and risk type.
Key questions addressed:
– What measures should be implemented to secure EV Service Equipment (recharging systems)?
– How can EV service providers comply with Privacy laws and protect so much
– Personally Identifiable Information (PII) that flows through EV infrastructure?
– How is it possible to develop sound security approaches for EV recharging when so many business aspects of the EV infrastructure remain undecided?
– Which security solutions are most likely to compete for EV security investment funding?
– What is the market size for EV security solutions, by region and by segment?
