Auto-ISAC was formed by automakers in August 2015 to establish a global information sharing community to promote vehicle cybersecurity. Auto-ISAC operates as a central hub for sharing, tracking and analyzing intelligence about potential cyber threats, vulnerabilities and incidents related to the connected vehicle; its secure intelligence sharing portal allows members to anonymously submit and receive information that helps them more effectively respond to cyber threats.
In 2016, Auto-ISAC published the Automotive Cybersecurity Best Practices Executive Summary, which outlines Auto-ISAC's informational guides that cover organizational and technical aspects of vehicle cybersecurity, including incident response, collaboration and engagement with appropriate third parties, governance, risk management, security by design, threat detection and protection, and training and awareness.
Auto-ISAC members represent more than 99 percent of light-duty vehicles on the road in North America, and recently expanded membership eligibility to include heavy-duty vehicles, commercial fleet managers, and carriers. It also has global representation from companies in Europe and Asia.
