AVIATION CYBER SECURITY
June 18-19, 2019
Global aviation continues to experience regular attacks on several fronts; whether it is a single drone bringing an international airport to a standstill, a breach leading to the widespread loss of customer data or disruption caused by a direct attack on operational systems, the cost of vulnerabilities in our IT and OT systems appears to be mounting. IT/OT and IoT convergence in avionics, navigation, communications and passenger information systems, in-flight and ground services has led to an increasing reliance on internet connectivity, real-time data exchange and automated industrial control systems. With this new paradigm of hyper-connectivity in aviation and aviation-related systems, the industry is having to face the reality of an expanded threat surface and increased complexity in managing risk.
