As it looks to begin addressing potential cybersecurity risks associated with connected automobiles, Intel Corporation announced on Monday that it had established a security board that will develop a set of best practices for the industry.
The Automotive Security Review Board (ASRB), which includes top security industry talent from around the globe, will be responsible for performing ongoing security tests and audits of the automobile industry. The purpose of this work, Intel said, is to develop recommendations for advanced cybersecurity products for manufacturers and consumers.
"We can, and must, raise the bar against cyberattacks in automobiles," Chris Young, senior vice president and general manager of Intel Security, said in a statement. "With the help of the ASRB, Intel can establish security best practices and encourage that cybersecurity is an essential ingredient in the design of every connected car. Few things are more personal than our safety while on the road, making the ASRB the right idea at the right time."
