Join Your Colleagues at the 3rd Auto-ISAC Cybersecurity Summit!

Our 3rd Auto-ISAC Cybersecurity Summit this October 2019 will build on topics introduced during our inaugural Summit last December. This year’s conference will focus on taking cybersecurity and sharing to the next level.

Move into the fast lane as we work together across the automotive ecosystem to discuss how we collaborate and learn best practices for mitigating the cybersecurity threat against our industry.

Join us and learn how the Auto-ISAC is speeding up to stay ahead of these emerging threats and fuel the industry for this endurance race.

Cybersecurity is in the news daily and on everyone’s mind.

Governments, businesses, and everyday Americans seem to be constantly under siege from international and domestic attackers. The Auto-ISAC’s focus at last year’s Summit was starting our engines and beginning to address these nefarious and asymmetric threats. With the exciting new innovations and technologies for automotive and autonomous vehicles, the industry has a call to action to shift gears and get in the fast lane.

Guided talks, panels and keynotes will share up-to-date knowledge and best practices. We invite you to join us for an exciting event that will provide educational and networking opportunities for the whole of the connected vehicle industry.

“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.”
