Auto-ISAC has signed a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to collaborate and improve cyber-threat information sharing and analysis, according to a company announcement.

By signing a CRADA, Auto-ISAC will be able to participate in the Cyber Information Sharing and Collaboration Program (CISCP), which is the department's flagship program for public-private multi-directional cybersecurity information sharing and analytic collaboration on the topics of cyber threats, incidents, and vulnerabilities.

A key aspect of this agreement will be the ability of Auto-ISAC representatives to be able to work with the U.S. government to share and analyze information and block cyber threats before damaging compromises occur.

Faye Francy, executive director of Auto-ISAC will be joining Andrea Amico, president of Jack Cooper Logistics in leading a session on the topic of cybersecurity and privacy at the Conference of Automotive Remarketing being held at Caesars Palace Las Vegas on March 6-7.
