Karamba Security, a global provider of end-to-end automotive cybersecurity protection solutions, has been selected by the Automotive-Information Sharing and Analysis Center (Auto-ISAC) to join the organization’s Strategic Partnership Program. As a strategic partner, Karamba Security will provide the Auto-ISAC and its members research analysis on attack activity and forensics data of such attacks against electronic control units (ECUs) to keep autonomous and connected vehicles secure.
Karamba will regularly share findings from threat analysis tools in an aggregated and anonymized way with the Auto-ISAC. These shareable insights will help vehicle OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers secure ECUs from hackers. Automotive cyberattacks occur when hackers compromise externally connected ECUs and send commands to safety ECUs, compromising driver, passenger and cargo safety. Keeping the community updated on vulnerabilities in vehicle connected ECUs (telematics control units (TCUs), gateway, infotainment, ADAS, CAN bus external connectivity, etc.) provides actionable mitigation steps to reduce risk.
“It is our privilege to be selected by the Auto-ISAC as a Strategic Partner,” said Ami Dotan, Karamba Security’s co-founder and CEO. “Joining the Auto-ISAC Strategic Partnership Program enables Karamba Security to better deliver on its mission to prevent cyber hacks and maintain consumer safety. Karamba Security’s real-time, detailed, forensics data enables Auto-ISAC members to expose hidden vulnerabilities in their ECUs and remedy the ECU before it is compromised. It is an honor to be trusted by the Auto-ISAC to provide the community with insights that will help secure vehicles.”
The Auto-ISAC was formed by automakers in August 2015 to establish a global information sharing community to address vehicle cybersecurity risks. Auto-ISAC operates a central hub for sharing, tracking and analyzing intelligence about cyber threats, vulnerabilities and incidents related to the connected vehicle. With Karamba joining Auto-ISAC as a strategic partner, it will be able to collaborate with automakers with to ensure cybersecurity is considered at all stages of the vehicle lifecycle.
Members of the Auto-ISAC include, among others, FCA, Ford, General Motors, Toyota, Mazda, Honda, Hyundai, Mitsubishi Motors, BMW, Mercedes Benz, VW and Volvo Group North America.
