Civil Aviation

The civil aviation ecosystem is a target of choice for malicious actors due to its safety-critical systems as well as its condition as an enabler of global trade.

Digitalization exposes aviation to threats arising from both internal and external fronts: increased use of smart devices from travelers and employees and the integration of IoT (Internet of Things) into industrial control systems in commercial aviation facilities.

Innovation and digitalization is leading to a hyper-connected reality in which some critical assets that are currently segregated are now being interconnected. Airlines, airports, MROs and ANSPs will become a fully integrated ecosystem. In this context, a vulnerability on weakly protected non-critical assets may lead to an overall failure of the aviation ecosystem.
