By Staff Writer April 30, 2019 315

The Automotive Information Sharing and Analysis Center (Auto-ISAC) welcomed 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 cyber security 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 cyber security issues.

“BlackBerry, Verizon, Pen Test Partners and Regulus all play critical roles in supporting the resiliency of our connected vehicle ecosystem, and their contribution to the Auto-ISAC is key to our industry’s success,” said Jeff Massimilla of General Motors, who serves as the Auto-ISAC’s chairman. “Collectively, these companies will contribute valuable information to drive the industry’s proactive work to incorporate strong security measures into every phase of the vehicle lifecycle.”

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.
