The Singapore Airshow saw a new cyber security solution launched by Israel Aerospace Industries Ltd this year, designed to tighten security around air traffic, aircraft systems and avionics, in addition to IT infrastructure.
The company, who have experience in civil aviation and in cyber security, have launched the new solution at the right time, with today’s growing threat of cyberspace terrorism sweeping the globe.
Cyber security providers are recognising a critical need for the creation of a holistic approach to strengthening infrastructure security across the entire aviation environment, including airports, IT systems, airlines, manufacturers and aircraft.
ARINC, world-leading aviation communications providers also lead the way in the global security market with solutions for highly advanced information management, including ARINC AIM.
