Last month, the US Senate introduced the Cybersecurity Standards for Aircraft to Improve Resilience Act (Cyber AIR Act). This move requires the FAA to introduce guidelines for the aviation industry in addition to the requirement of airlines to report any and every instance of cyber-attack to the government.
In a technologically-advancing age, cybersecurity in the aviation industry is becoming increasingly necessary, with potentially disastrous consequences on the table for failure to keep information management systems secure. Millions of pieces of mission-critical data, and personal passenger information is exchanged between agencies, government bodies and aviation businesses every day, and access to it is strictly regulated.
Providers of cybersecurity solutions for key infrastructure in airports and secure facilities all over the world deliver a wide range of products and technology to ensure industry standards are met and integration remains fully managed.
