The Automotive Information Sharing and Analysis Center (Auto-ISAC) welcomes Volvo Cars as its latest original equipment manufacturer (OEM) member. Volvo Cars will join Auto-ISAC’s other OEM members on the organization’s Board of Directors.
“Volvo Cars recognizes that cyber-security is a constantly evolving threat that must be dealt with globally in an intelligent and proactive way. Volvo Cars takes cyber security and privacy issues very seriously and therefore, we believe joining the Auto-ISAC is paramount as it will serve as the central organization for analysis and sharing of cyber threats. This global collaboration with other automakers and suppliers will provide additional critical support in our robust efforts to keep our cars as secure as possible,” said Klas Bendrik, Senior Vice President and Group Chief Information Officer.
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. 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 percent of light-duty vehicles on the road in North America.
