AUTOMOTIVE INFORMATION SHARING AND ANALYSIS CENTER

An industry-driven community to share and analyze intelligence about emerging cybersecurity risks to the vehicle, and to collectively enhance vehicle cybersecurity capabilities across the global automotive industry, including light- and heavy-duty vehicle OEMs, suppliers and the commercial vehicle sector.

Automotive connectivity

Vehicles are benefiting from a wave of technology innovation, producing transportation that is safer, cleaner and smarter thanks in large part to automotive and information systems that provide more connectivity. The very technology that provides us with these new efficiencies also introduces cyber risk to the vehicle, which is why the industry is proactively addressing this issue as a critical focus.

Security at every stage

Automakers, their suppliers and commercial vehicle companies are committed to strong cybersecurity protections in these systems, and are taking many actions, including implementing security feature sin every stage of the vehicle lifecycle. The Auto-ISAC provides an external resource – an industry-wide forum for companies to collaborate to identify threats sooner, and share solutions to enhance vehicle cybersecurity.

Our History

In 2014, the Auto Alliance, Global Automakers and fourteen automakers joined forces to form the Auto-ISAC, a community to share and analyze intelligence about emerging cybersecurity risks to the vehicle. The organization was officially established in August 2015, and its intelligence sharing platform went live in January 2016. Since then, the Auto-ISAC has broadened its horizons to include a more comprehensive view of the connected vehicle ecosystem. Today, membership includes light- and heavy-duty vehicle OEMs, suppliers and the commercial vehicle sector (e.g. fleets, carriers).
