Upstream Joins J-Auto-ISAC as Support Member

The growth of connected vehicles and advanced services is exploding, resulting in a rapidly growing number of cyber attacks that compromise customer experience, safety and trust. As attacks become more sophisticated, deep collaboration and information sharing between automotive stakeholders is required to effectively mitigate threats and risks.

TOKYO, JAPAN & HERZLIYA, ISRAEL– Upstream, the creator of the industry-leading cloud-based cybersecurity and data management platform for the automotive and smart-mobility ecosystem, announced it was accepted as a support member in General Incorporated Association Japan Automotive ISAC (J-Auto-ISAC). With the rapid growth of connected vehicles as well as advanced services and applications, cyber attacks have become more widespread and complex. The impact on safety, reliability and trust, as well as potential damages associated with cyber threats, have led many automotive and smart mobility stakeholders to shift attention and resources to develop effective response and mitigation strategies.

J-Auto-ISAC was established in February 2021 to promote information sharing and analysis of cybersecurity risks. With over 100 members, J-Auto-ISAC is focused on strengthening cybersecurity response capabilities and ensuring the safe and secure use of vehicles and mobility services in Japan. J-Auto-ISAC’s wide activities include frequent information sharing about cybersecurity threats and vulnerabilities to its members, as well as delivering deep analysis reports by industry experts. Upstream will actively contribute to the collaboration efforts, sharing information and insights on automotive-related cyber incidents, risks and vulnerabilities based on the Upstream Platform and AutoThreat® solution.

“Upstream already monitors and secures over 12 million vehicles from some of the top OEMs globally,” states Yoav Levy, Upstream’s Co-Founder and CEO. “Our mission is to secure and empower the future of connected vehicles by shaping the way automotive stakeholders use and process data.”

“Upstream has been working closely with Japanese OEMs, Tier-1s and strategic partners to deliver a robust detection and response platform, purpose built for the automotive industry,” adds Akira Ueno, Upstream’s General Manager in Japan. “This is a great opportunity for us to liaison with J-Auto-ISAC and the Japanese community and share from our experience. We look forward to taking an active role and supporting the ecosystem in Japan.”
