WASHINGTON, Aug. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Automotive Information Sharing and Analysis Center (Auto-ISAC) welcomes Continental, Cummins, HARMAN, and ZF as original equipment supplier members. The four new members continue Auto-ISAC's recent expansion beyond automakers, as the organization acknowledges the critical role that suppliers play in creating strong vehicle cybersecurity protections.
"Automakers and suppliers must be in close coordination around cybersecurity," said Jeff Massimilla of General Motors, Auto-ISAC's Vice-Chairman. "With members like Continental, Cummins, HARMAN, and ZF, Auto-ISAC can continue to facilitate that coordination and improve the industry's collective cybersecurity posture."
