It was inspired by similar organizations in the financial and aviation sectors. In Auto-ISAC, members have the option of anonymously submitting and receiving information that can significantly help them to tackle cyber threats in real time. Over 99% of light-duty vehicles on the road in North America are made by organizations that are members of Auto-ISAC.
