Intel Corporation established the Automotive Security Review Board (ASRB) to help mitigate cyber security risks associated with connected automobiles, the company said Monday.
The ASRB will include security industry specialists across the globe. Intel noted that ASRB researchers will perform ongoing security tests and audits intended to codify best practices and design recommendations for advanced cybersecurity solutions and products to benefit the automobile industry and drivers.
The company also published the first version of its automotive cybersecurity best practices white paper. Intel will update it based on ASRB findings.
“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,” said Chris Young, senior vice president and general manager of Intel Security.
Research agency Gartner predicts that “by 2020, the number of connected passenger vehicles on the road in use will be about 150 million; 60 percent to 75 percent of them will be capable of consuming, creating and sharing Web-based data.”
