MEMA Joins with Auto-ISAC
The Motor & Equipment Manufacturers Association (MEMA) has linked up with a leading cyber security organisation in a bid to ensure that policy makers take reman into account when drafting legislation on cybersecurity in the automotive industry. Its strategic partnership with the Automotive Information Sharing and Analysis Center (Auto-ISAC) will centre on potential threats to vehicle-to-vehicle communications and network connections in future vehicles. MEMA president and CEO Steve Handschuh says this will help the industry tackle “the complex security issues”. Starting in 1998,ISACs were created in areas such as financial services, electricity and energy to share information about physical and cyber threats to protect US infrastructure.
