The Automotive Information Sharing and Analysis Center (Auto-ISAC) has announced that Bosch, Cooper Standard, Honeywell, Hyundai Mobis, Lear Corp., LG Electronics and NXP Semiconductors have joined the organization as OE supplier members. The group says inclusion of these companies exemplifies Auto-ISAC’s continued efforts to promote collaboration between Tier 1 suppliers and automobile manufacturers around vehicle cybersecurity.
Auto-ISAC was formed by automakers in August 2015 to establish a global information sharing 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.
“We look forward to working together with Bosch, Cooper Standard, Honeywell, Hyundai Mobis, Lear Corp., LG Electronics and NXP Semiconductors to advance vehicle cybersecurity protections,” said Jeff Massimilla of General Motors, who serves as the organization’s vice chairman. “Each of these new members plays a critical role in the design and engineering of secure connected vehicles. The addition of these seven companies will help Auto-ISAC continue to support the industry’s proactive efforts to incorporate strong security measures into every phase of the vehicle lifecycle.”
In 2016, Auto-ISAC published the Automotive Cybersecurity Best Practices Executive Summary, which outlines Auto-ISAC’s 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, training and awareness.
Auto-ISAC members represent more than 99 percent of light-duty vehicles on the road in North America, and 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.
