Aviation Cyber Security Assessment
In recent years, we have seen significant attacks on large organisations, critical infrastructures of various types, governments, and SMEs with varying degrees of sophistication and severity of impact.
As one might expect, the aviation industry is no exception. However, significant distinctions exist between financial services, insurance, and e-commerce, to name a few. Transportation, particularly aircraft, has a critical life safety issue. If a cyberattack is successful, it can result in the death of many people, resulting in a total disaster. If that weren't enough, it could jeopardise trust and, consequently, the brand.
Aviation cybersecurity is a subset of general cybersecurity but with the added risk of losing a life.
Additionally, aviation and aerospace systems must display real-time behaviour and be extremely reliable. These systems are mission-critical, necessitating rigorous certification and cybersecurity measures.
