Aviation industry urged to do more to tackle Cyber Risk:
The aviation industry is behind in terms of its response and readiness to the threat posed by cyber criminality whether from criminals, terrorists, nation states or hackers.
It has been warned that regulators, manufacturers and operators are only now waking up to the pervasive nature of cyber threats. FAC are concerned that cyber risk is not viewed as a significant and we are here to tell you it is!
The aviation sector is particularly vulnerable to risk of cyber vulnerabilities because there is such heavy reliance upon digital capability and the very high degree of integration in a very sophisticated supply chain. Vulnerability and weakness in any part of the supply chain can and does have significant impact.
We are therefore holding an event on 23rd July which we feel is one of the events that you MUST attend. Do not think that your IT department has everything under control because the major players of this world thought that and guess what – they did not. There will be an insistent in the not too distant future from the majors that to be part of their supply chain you will have to be able to supply non-vulnerability assurances.
Who should attend: CEO’s, IT Personnel, Office Managers ……
