The Automotive Information Sharing and Analysis Center (Auto-ISAC) has announced two new members BlackBerry and Verizon and, two new strategic partners Pen Test Partners and Regulus.
The inclusion of these four companies increases the strength of the Auto-ISAC’s position as the voice of the global auto cybersecurity information sharing community that works to prevent cyber threats to the connected vehicle.
The Auto-ISAC was formed by automakers in 2015 to promote collaboration between suppliers, commercial vehicle companies and automobile manufacturers around vehicle cybersecurity issues. Additionally, the Auto-ISAC has a strategic partner program that brings great value to our membership collaborating with innovators who support learning and sharing tools and techniques in managing the emerging complexity of automotive cybersecurity.
The Auto-ISAC operates as a central hub to share and analyze intelligence about emerging cybersecurity risks. The focus of the Auto-ISAC is to foster global collaboration for mitigating the risks of a cyber-attack and to create a safe, efficient, secure and resilient global connected vehicle ecosystem.
A key action by the Auto-ISAC is the publishing of the automotive cybersecurity best practice guides that cover organizational and technical aspects of vehicle cybersecurity.
Currently, three of the guides are available to the public: incident response, governance and collaboration and engagement with appropriate third parties. Additional guides are forthcoming: security-by-design, risk management, threat detection and protection, and training and awareness.
