2 Auto-ISAC, Jack Cooper Logistics execs to host IARA cybersecurity town hall


IARA announced Wednesday details about its upcoming town hall discussion on cybersecurity set for the last day of the Conference of Automotive Remarketing.

Auto-ISAC’s Faye Francy and Jack Cooper Logistics' Andrea Amico will host the town hall next month.

IARA said the two executives will discuss minimizing cybersecurity threats to the remarketing industry, along with data privacy initiatives, such as safeguarding personally identifiable information.

“If attendees are interested in how and what the automotive sector is doing to manage cybersecurity risk, then this is a must-attend panel discussion,” Francy said in a news release.

Francy became Auto-ISAC’s first executive director in October 2016, and she has 30 years of experience in government and industry, specializing in cybersecurity and complex systems.

To collaborate and improve vehicle cyber-threat information sharing and analysis, Auto-ISAC recently signed a cooperative research and development agreement with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, according to IARA.

Additionally, Amico took on his role as president of Jack Cooper Logistics in 2011 and has held previous leadership positions at both NBC Universal and McKinsey & Co.

“Consumer sentiment, legislative action, media attention and technology are rapidly evolving when it comes to privacy and cars. The work we have done at IARA is industry-leading, and this session is a great way to navigate the emerging digital PII landscape,” added Amico.

A full conference pass is $895 before Friday. Passes will then rise by an additional $100.
