Strategic Partners will be involved in the cyber security regulatory environment for the aviation industry by supporting the challenges that the aviation industry is facing and participating in the development of best practices and guidelines.

Cyber Security Strategic Partnerships Summary

Aviation Cyber Security represents a top priority for aviation by maintaining safe, secure, and resilient operations. While technology and digitization bring many advantages to aviation, they also create challenges in managing cyber vulnerabilities in this complex environment. The airline industry is an attractive target for cyber threat actors intent on causing harm, and whose motivations range from stealing value in data or money to causing serious disruptions and damage.
