Members of the Automotive Information Sharing and Analysis Center (Auto-ISAC) on Thursday released an overview of what they called “comprehensive Automotive Cybersecurity Best Practices,” which they say was developed as a proactive measure to further enhance vehicle cybersecurity throughout the industry.    

More than 50 automotive cybersecurity experts from around the world participated in the development of these best practices to advance automotive cybersecurity capabilities, said the group.

The best practices provide deep technical and organizational breadth to support, develop, and improve defenses against potential cybersecurity threats of the motor vehicle ecosystem. They are grounded in ISO, NIST and other established cybersecurity frameworks but are tailored to the motor vehicle

The creation of the best practices follows the release of the Framework for Automotive Cybersecurity Best Practices jointly released by the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers and the Association of Global Automakers in January 2016.

The Auto-ISAC coordinated with both organizations throughout the Best Practices development, and say their members have committed to continuously enhancing the best practices over time to keep pace with the constantly evolving cyber landscape.
