Auto-ISAC appoints Dr. Martin Emele new European Regional Director
The Automotive Information Sharing and Analysis Center (Auto-ISAC) today announced the appointment of Dr. Martin Emele as the European Regional Director (ERD). In this role, Martin Emele will be responsible for establishing and leading the European Regional Branch of the Auto-ISAC in order to advance Cybersecurity of the Connected Vehicle across the Industry.
Martin Emele stated the outlook for the European Auto-ISAC: “My vision for the next few years is to establish a strong community in Europe where automotive OEMs and suppliers actively collaborate to share security issues and resolve them quickly. We need to develop a robust global sharing practice built on trust and awareness to ensure that relevant information is shared and does not remain in small circles. This also means that we do not want segregated European and U.S. ISACs, but a truly global Auto-ISAC, because attackers are operating on a global scale as well. I firmly believe that only together as one strong team we can protect our customers and increase the resilience of our organizations, because an attack on one is an attack on all.”
"An attack on one is an attack on all"
Martin Emele has been the Vice President Cybersecurity Public Affairs and Governmental Relations at the Bosch Group since 2018. In this position he actively engages with government agencies, which included the European Union Agency for Cybersecurity (ENISA), the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI), and other private sector entities and associations. As head of the Automotive Cybersecurity product group, he was also responsible for the security business of ESCRYPT at Bosch subsidiary ETAS.
Going forward, the European Regional Director will establish a regional Auto-ISAC presence in Europe by shepherding close coordination and alignment with European-based Auto-ISAC members and other automotive companies who have yet to join. This includes crafting alliances with key partners including the European Automobile Manufacturer Association (ACEA) and the European Association of Automotive Suppliers (CLEPA), as well as with national and European government agencies.
