We thank our members and the automotive community for your inquiries regarding our annual Summit. We are mindful of the personal and professional challenges facing us all during the COVID-19 epidemic, but recognize that our mission remains critical to the industry and that there are increased cybersecurity concerns during times of crisis. Therefore, with cautious optimism, we are moving forward with event planning.  We will continue to provide updates on our website, including event details, registration information, and a call for papers.

4th Annual Auto-ISAC Cybersecurity Summit!

The Summit is an automotive cybersecurity conference that showcases insights from manufacturers, suppliers, thought leaders, lawmakers, practitioners and other stakeholders and highlights the commitment of members to trust, share, teach, learn, and act.
2020 Summit topics will explore the state of the global automotive cybersecurity landscape and how Auto-ISAC can help ensure consistent industry-wide cybersecurity capability to build critical resilience because...

An Attack on One is an Attack on All.

“The Auto-ISAC Summit provides a unique experience to learn about automotive cybersecurity information sharing, collaboration, and organization. The Summit fills a gap among automotive cybersecurity workshops and ideally complements more technical workshops such as escar.”

– Summit Attendee


Auto-ISAC is looking for dynamic presentations for their 2020 Summit!

In Vehicle

This section takes a dive into how the connectivity with each generation of vehicle increases, therefore, needing to ensure that in-vehicle cybersecurity is robust. 

Between wireless network capabilities, USB ports, key fobs, OBD 2 ports, intra-vehicle network and ECU, it is a large task to secure vehicle integrity to ensure overall safety.

We will examine new technology such as 5G implications, biometrics, and artificial intelligence which can all be used to secure vehicles. From penetration testing to vehicle security standards, the industry needs to stay on their toes to keep up with the growing need to secure vehicles.


Vehicle Ecosystem

A connected vehicle builds an ecosystem of networks between the vehicle, its passengers, and the world around them. It is essential that vehicle manufacturers focus on simultaneously developing and protecting this delicate ecosystem – including cybersecurity protections from design to production as well as privacy by design.

This section examines this double-edged sword created by the benefits of a connected vehicle versus the ever-growing attack surface that it creates . Benefits include ELD (Electronic Logging Device) for commercial vehicles, data insights into urban planning, passenger/pedestrian safety, smart and autonomous cities, and the improvement of the average commuter’s experience. Drawbacks include the increased risks of a potential cyber attack can pose, putting privacy at risk.  


Processes and Standards

Autonomous, Connected, Electric, and Shared concepts are transforming the automobile industry, resulting in a significant number of new standards being developed and an impact on internal processes. 

We will explore topics such as vehicle integrity in a right to repair world, cybersecurity and privacy in the US and globally, an overview of the various standards being developed at the global, federal, and state level, working with law enforcement and regulators with new data models in automotive, supply chain, tools and techniques to support change.


Organizations and Education

The necessity for great collaboration across historically siloed teams, and increased education and awareness within our companies and with our customers will be discussed in this section.

We will explore concepts such as the role of enterprise IT in the connected vehicle space, Virtual Security Operations Center leading practices, global information sharing, industry context beyond automobiles the overlap of safety, cyber, and privacy, product vs enterprise cyber, and threat intelligence.
