It’s been a headlines-grabbing subject: New cars that are connected to the Internet could be hijacked by hackers and driven off the road. Now, Intel is announcing it wants to fix the problem.

The tech giant has launched a review board that will look to ensure the safety of connected cars.

“We can and must, raise the bar against cyber attacks in automobiles,” said Chris Young, senior vice president and general manager of Intel Security in a news release. “With the help of ASRB, Intel can establish security best practices and encourage that cybersecurity is an essential ingredient in the design of every connected car.”

Intel Security has already released a white paper around on this topic and is looking for comments. The company also wants researchers to sign on to the new program.

Intel is positioning itself as a leader in the next wave of computing, which is moving beyond mobile devices and includes wearable systems, connected homes and cars and a myriad of other connected devices within the Internet of Things.
