Intel in cyber security driving seat, sets up connected car security board

Board will include security specialists from across the globe.

By CBR Staff Writer

Intel has established an automotive security review board (ASRB) to help mitigate cybersecurity risks related with connected automobiles.

The board will include security industry specialists from across the globe. They will undertake ongoing security tests and audits aimed at codifying best practices, as well as produce design recommendations for advanced cybersecurity solutions and products.

Intel also published the initial version of its automotive cybersecurity best practices white paper, which will be updated depending on ASRB findings.

The board will undertake research using Intel’s automotive advanced development platforms. The company said it will award a new car to the member who delivers the most significant and impactful cybersecurity contribution that can be deployed on its automotive platform.

Intel Security senior vice president and general manager Chris Young said: "We can, and must, raise the bar against cyberattacks in automobiles.

"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."

Gartner predicts that the number of connected passenger vehicles on the road in use will be around 150 million by 2020.
