Suppliers join Auto-ISAC
The Automotive Information Sharing and Analysis Center (Auto-ISAC) announced in Late February that Bosch, Cooper Standard, Honeywell, Hyundai Mobis, Lear Corp., LG Electronics, and NXP Semiconductors as original equipment supplier members.
"Each of these new members plays a critical role in the design and engineering of secure connected vehicles,” said Jeff Massimilla of General Motors, who serves as the organization's Vice Chairman. “The addition of these seven companies will help the Auto-ISAC continue to support the industry's proactive efforts to incorporate strong security measures into every phase of the vehicle lifecycle."
The Auto-ISAC was formed by automakers in August 2015 to establish a global community to promote vehicle cybersecurity. Auto-ISAC operates as a central hub for sharing, tracking, and analyzing intelligence about potential cyber threats, vulnerabilities, and incidents related to the connected vehicle; its secure intelligence sharing portal allows members to anonymously submit and receive information that helps them more effectively respond to cyber threats.
In 2016, the Auto-ISAC published the Automotive Cybersecurity Best Practices Executive Summary, which outlines informational guides that cover organizational and technical aspects of vehicle cybersecurity, including incident response, collaboration, and engagement with appropriate third parties, governance, risk management, security by design, threat detection and protection, and training and awareness.
Auto-ISAC members represent more than 99% of light-duty vehicles on the road in North America, and it recently expanded membership eligibility to include heavy-duty vehicles, commercial fleet managers, and carriers. It also has global representation from companies in Europe and Asia.
