5th Annual Auto-ISAC Cybersecurity Summit!

Hybrid Event - Detroit, MI and Virtual

Please join us!

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. This year our event will take place both in Detroit and virtually. 

The automotive industry is at the nexus of emerging societal, governmental, environmental, and technological trends that herald a new era of mobility. To that end, industry participants are developing and deploying electric powertrains, striving to balance operational consistency and predictability while minimizing risk, including, of course, cybersecurity risk.

This year's Summit will explore existing and emerging cybersecurity challenges on the way to this new era. Yes, indeed, it is time for the industry to…



Sub-Themes to be Explored in 2021

This seems to be a topic that's impossible to ignore, so we won't! Impossible to cover every supply chain topic, so we'll focus on key industry initiatives and concerns.



An emerging discipline for Auto-ISAC, we'll discuss trends, lessons learned, how to prepare, and how to recover in the event of an incident.
