Automotive industry collaborates on vehicle cybersecurity best practices

LinkedIn +

Members of the Automotive Information Sharing and Analysis Center (Auto-ISAC) have released an overview of comprehensive automotive cybersecurity best practices, developed as a proactive measure to further enhance vehicle cybersecurity throughout the industry.

Over five months, more than 50 automotive cybersecurity experts from around the world have participated in the development of these best practices to advance automotive cybersecurity capabilities. The effort began in early 2016 when the 15 auto maker members of the Auto-ISAC formed a working group to examine all cybersecurity aspects of the motor vehicle ecosystem.

The best practices provide deep technical and organizational breadth to support, develop and improve defenses against potential cybersecurity threats of the motor vehicle ecosystem. They are grounded in ISO, NIST and other established cybersecurity frameworks but are tailored to the motor vehicle. Auto-ISAC members have committed to continuously enhancing the best practices over time to keep pace with the constantly evolving cyber landscape.
