Think Paper No. 12
Aviation under attack: Faced with a rising tide of cybercrime, is our industry resilient enough to cope?
IFA Comment: Although produced by data from Air Traffic Team it covers concern of the whole industry.
The European aviation industry is being increasingly exposed to rising levels of risk, as criminals, hackers and state- sponsored cyber-attackers look to exploit vulnerabilities, cause chaos, and above all, fill their pockets at the expense of the aviation sector, with airlines and the flying public firmly in their sights. Using exclusive EUROCONTROL data from the Agency’s EATM-CERT (European Air Traffic Management Computer Emergency Response Team) service, this Think Paper casts light on the urgency of the threat, gives an idea of its magnitude, assesses the threat sources, advises how European aviation actors should enhance their cyber-resilience.
