 Auto-ISAC Adds New Member – Renesas Electronics – Focused on the Cybersecurity of the Connected Vehicle

Washington, DC – April 21, 2020  The Automotive Information Sharing and Analysis Center (Auto-ISAC) adds Renesas Electronics to its expanding membership base.

“The inclusion of Renesas Electronics increases the Auto-ISAC’s position as the voice of the global auto cybersecurity information sharing community,” said Kevin Tierney, General Motors’ Vice President of Global Cybersecurity and chairman of the Auto-ISAC. “Each of our member companies play a role in the design and engineering resiliency of our connected vehicles and their participation is key to the industry’s success 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 cybersecurity issues. It 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.

Additionally, the Auto-ISAC offers a strategic partner program that provides members the ability to collaborate with innovators who support the emerging complexity of the automotive cybersecurity environment.

A key function of the membership of the Auto-ISAC is publishing automotive cybersecurity best practice guides that cover organizational and technical aspects of vehicle cybersecurity. Guides on the following topics are available to the public: awareness and training; collaboration and engagement; governance; incident response; risk assessment and management; and threat detection, monitoring and analysis.

The Auto-ISAC has global representation. Its members represent more than 99 percent of light-duty vehicles on the road in North America. Members also include heavy-duty vehicles, commercial fleets and carriers and suppliers. For more information please visit and follow us @autoisac.
