General Motors collaborate with US Army on auto cybersecurity
General Motors and US Army CCDC Ground Vehicle Systems Centre (GVSC) have announced a new research and development agreement which aims to strengthen automotive cybersecurity expertise during the next two years.
The agreement marks the first automotive cybersecurity partnership of its kind between GVSC and a full-line vehicle manufacturer.
Cybersecurity experts from both parties will share best practices, methodologies, tools and approaches focused on conducting penetration testing and cybersecurity risk analysis. In addition to improving cybersecurity processes, both organisations aim to share key learnings with the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) for the development of common standards.
«Cybersecurity is an area of growing concern to the auto industry and one GM takes very seriously, which is why a partnership with the US Army is crucially important» said GM chief product cybersecurity officer, Kevin Tierney.
