NAFA Joins Auto-ISAC as a Cybersecurity Strategic Partner
 
Partnership developed to combat cyber threats, vulnerabilities, and incidents related to connected vehicles

PRINCETON, N.J. (APRIL 5, 2018)NAFA Fleet Management Association (NAFA), the vehicle fleet industry’s largest membership association, has been named to the Automotive Information Sharing and Analysis Center (Auto-ISAC), as a strategic partner. In this alliance, NAFA will represent and advocate for the fleet and mobility profession in a partnership that will directly impact vehicle safety and security.
 
“With today’s high-tech vehicles running on multiple computers and networks, hackers have ample ability to break into the vehicle’s controls,” said NAFA Chief Executive Officer Phillip E. Russo, CAE. “NAFA has been the voice of the fleet industry’s concerns and needs for vehicle security, advocating to lawmakers and regulators the need for stringent cybersecurity. Our partnership with Auto-ISAC further strengthens our longstanding mission and commitment.”

As part of the agreement with Auto-ISAC, NAFA will have access to information, reports, webinars, workshops, and other educational tools to share with its members. This positions NAFA to have even greater influence and impact on the future of vehicle cybersecurity.
