Advancing Cybersecurity of the Connected Vehicle across the Industry
Washington, DC – June 8, 2021 – The Automotive Information Sharing and Analysis Center (Auto-ISAC) welcomes new member Luminar Technologies, the global leader in automotive lidar hardware and software technology,
The addition of Luminar as a Member of the Auto-ISAC expands its Membership of organizations on a mission to make autonomy safe and ubiquitous. The Auto-ISAC was formed by automakers in August 2015 to establish a global information sharing community to promote vehicle cybersecurity.
“Luminar joining the Auto-ISAC bolsters the Membership’s pool of information related to the critical area of security in the growing autonomous vehicle sector. Many current ISAC Members are involved in this sector and look forward to sharing experiences that will help support cybersecurity for the whole of the automotive industry,” said Kevin Tierney, Vice President Global Cybersecurity, General Motors, who serves as the Auto-ISAC’s Chairman.
The Auto-ISAC operates as a central hub to share and analyze intelligence about emerging cybersecurity risks. Its secure intelligence sharing portal allows members to anonymously submit and receive information that helps them more effectively respond to cyber threats.
“As technology continues to shape the future of automotive safety, the Auto-ISAC helps ensure that we as an industry will meet cybersecurity challenges together,” said Tony Cooke, VP of Policy and Regulation.
Recently, the Auto-ISAC expanded its scope to include Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT) functional areas related to the connected vehicle. The newly formed IT/OT Working Group creates a forum for technical IT and OT cybersecurity experts in the automotive industry to share actionable intelligence regarding cybersecurity challenges, threats, and risk mitigation methods to build resiliency of the connected vehicle.
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 www.automotiveisac.com and follow us @autoisac.
