Delphi, Valeo join Auto-ISAC cybersecurity coalition

Manufacturer-driven group's supplier council gains major Tier 1 suppliers to work on security challenges for future cars, commercial trucks.


Washington, D.C. – Tier 1 auto suppliers Valeo and Delphi Technologies have joined the Automotive Information Sharing and Analysis Center (Auto-ISAC), a trade group established to study cybersecurity in increasingly connected vehicles.

The Auto-ISAC was formed by automakers in August 2015 to establish a global information sharing community to promote vehicle cybersecurity.

"Delphi Technologies and Valeo play critical roles in the design and engineering of secure connected vehicles, and we are pleased to have them join us to drive the industry's proactive work to incorporate strong security measures into every phase of the vehicle lifecycle," said Jeff Massimilla of General Motors, chairman of the Auto-ISAC.

The Auto-ISAC operates as a hub to share and analyze intelligence about emerging cybersecurity risks. Its secure intelligence sharing portal allows members to anonymously submit and receive information that helps them more effectively respond to cyber threats.

Jeff Stewart of AT&T and chairman of the organization's Affiliate Advisory Board, which represents non-OEM members said, "We all play a key role in the cybersecurity of connected vehicles. Sharing and analyzing cyber risk information benefits everyone and it is important that Delphi Technologies and Valeo contribute to our intelligence gathering actions."

Auto-ISAC publishes the Automotive Cybersecurity Best Practices Executive Summary which provides informational guides that cover organizational and technical aspects of vehicle cybersecurity.

Two of the guides are available to the public: incident response, governance and collaboration and engagement with appropriate third parties.

Six additional guides being written include: risk management, security by design, threat detection and protection, and training and awareness.

Auto-ISAC’s members represent more than 99% of light-duty vehicles on the road in North America. Members also include heavy-duty vehicles, commercial fleets, and carriers and suppliers.
