Allison Transmission, Autoliv, Calsonic Kansei, Hitachi, Intel and Navistar are the new members to join the Automotive Information Sharing and Analysis Center (Auto-ISAC).
The inclusion of these companies exemplifies the Auto-ISAC’s continued efforts to promote collaboration between Tier 1 suppliers and automobile manufacturers around vehicle cybersecurity.
The Auto-ISAC was formed by automakers in August 2015 to establish a global information sharing community to promote vehicle cybersecurity.
The center operates as a central hub to share and analyze intelligence about emerging cybersecurity risks. Its secure intelligence sharing portal allows members to anonymously submit and receive information that helps them more effectively respond to cyber threats.
A key action by the Auto-ISAC is the publishing of the Automotive Cybersecurity Best Practices Executive Summary which provides informational guides that cover organizational and technical aspects of vehicle cybersecurity.
Two of the guides are available to the public: incident response and collaboration and engagement with appropriate third parties. Six additional guides being written include: governance, risk management, security by design, threat detection and protection, and training and awareness.
“Allison Transmission, Autoliv, Calsonic Kansei, Hitachi, Intel and Navistar all play critical roles in the design and engineering of secure connected vehicles, and we look forward to working with them,” said Jeff Massimilla of General Motors, who serves as the Auto-ISAC’s Chairman.
“The addition of these six companies will help the Auto-ISAC continue to drive the industry’s proactive efforts to incorporate strong security measures into every phase of the vehicle lifecycle.”
