NXP Joins Auto-ISAC

27 February 2017

NXP Semiconductors N.V. has joined the Automotive Information Sharing and Analysis Center (Auto-ISAC).

Auto-ISAC was formed by automakers to establish a secure platform for sharing, tracking and analyzing intelligence about cyber threats and potential vulnerabilities around the connected vehicle. Auto-ISAC operates as a central hub that allows members to anonymously submit and receive information to help them more effectively counter cyber threats in real time.

The automobile industry recognizes that the autonomous driving ecosystem—that includes wireless technologies that enable communications, telematics, digital broadcast reception and ADAS systems—introduces risks for potential attacks by hackers.

NXP has joined the Auto-ISAC organization to help develop best cybersecurity practices for the automotive industry. Auto-ISAC published the Automotive Cybersecurity Best Practices Executive Summary, which outlines Auto-ISAC’s development of informational guides that cover organizational and technical aspects of vehicle cybersecurity, including governance, risk management, security by design, threat detection and incident response. ISAC implements training and promotes collaboration with third parties. In the United States, 98 percent of vehicles on the road are represented by member companies in the Auto-ISAC.
