Denso Corp. has joined the Automotive Information Sharing and Analysis Center (Auto-ISAC) in June as a Tier 1 supplier member in an effort to advance vehicle cybersecurity protections.
"Denso is committed to protecting lives by making cars safer and more reliable,” says Roger Berg, vice president, North America Research and Development, Denso International America, Inc.
“Our Auto-ISAC membership helps us to continue in that mission by collaborating with automotive OEMs and suppliers to share meaningful information about cyber-attack vulnerability and recovery strategies. Our expertise in connected vehicles and the technologies that make them work will help us aid customers in ensuring a secure driving environment."
Auto-ISAC was formed in July 2015 in a collective effort by the auto industry to establish a secure platform for sharing, tracking and analyzing intelligence about cyber threats and potential vulnerabilities. It was modeled after similar programs in the aviation and financial industries.
The 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. Currently, Auto-ISAC members account for more than 99% of light-duty vehicles on the road in North America.
