Civil aviation is reliant on cyber technology to enable safety and efficiency of air transport. It uses interconnected systems for air navigation, on-board aircraft control and communications, airport ground control, flight information, security screening and many other daily operations. The interconnection of aviation systems across geographic locations means that the cyber-threat to aviation is global. Therefore addressing cybersecurity needs to be addressed in a unified way by the entire aviation industry.
To address the topic of 'Cybersecurity Resilience in Aviation' we welcome Gerry Ngu, a senior expert in aviation cybersecurity. Gerry is currently the Technical Lead of the European Cybersecurity Centre for Aviation and Chairman of the recently established Network of Cybersecurity Analysts for the European Member States.
