The American Trucking Associations (ATA) announced Wednesday the launch of Fleet CyWatch, a new service for members of the trucking industry to share threat information and report cybercrimes affecting fleet operations. The Fleet CyWatch program is open to motor carrier and council members of ATA, the US's largest national trade association for the trucking industry.
"As the industry responsible for delivering America's food, fuel and other essentials, security is of paramount importance, particularly in an increasingly technologically connected world," said Chris Spear, ATA president and CEO, in a statement. "Fleet CyWatch is the next logical step in our association's and our industry's commitment to working with law enforcement and national security agencies to keep our supply chain safe and secure."
Fleet CyWatch was developed in conjunction with the US Federal Bureau of Investigations to improve cybercrime reporting and response and to improve motor carriers' cybersecurity awareness and threat prevention.
