“The ICC is proud to join with CTIA-the Wireless Association, the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers, and the Association of Global Automakers in submitting comments regarding NTIA’s efforts to ensure cybersecurity in the digital ecosystem. The ICC has long supported multistakeholder, industry-led approaches to resolving policy matters. In this case, we join with the leading wireless and automotive associations to support a process — similar to the NIST process — to yield a voluntary cybersecurity framework for connected cars.”
