The air transport community is facing increased risk from cyber attacks. SITA is working to support the industry to mitigate this threat through data sharing and greater collaboration.

The interdependencies built into air transport systems mean the vulnerability to cyber-attacks is increasing. Cyber threats cannot be efficiently combated by acting unilaterally. Instead, we must combine forces and find mutually agreeable ways of dealing with this reality.

To help air transport fight back, SITA operates the SITA Community Cyber Threat Center (CCTC), – a security information sharing service – on behalf of its members. The CCTC enables actionable information on cyber threats to be shared in a timely manner among key industry stakeholders. The center is aimed at security professionals working for more than 400 SITA member organizations from across the air transport industry.

Cybersecurity has steadily progressed to become a key topic on companies' risk agendas. Our industry – and many others – has seen a dramatic change as security researchers, hackers, criminal organizations and nation-states target the vast expanse of global air transportation.

Stakeholders from across the industry are calling for joint actions and increased collaboration to actively combat the cyber security threat. Our ability to share threat information relating to cyber security incidents affecting our industry has become paramount.

With such information, the industry will increasingly be able to search for those attackers deeply nested into our infrastructure and provide a coordinated response to those who seek to take advantage of temporary security lapses. 

Community Cyber Threat Center

The SITA Community Cyber Threat Center (CCTC), launched in 2017, is working to support a community-wide response by promoting the proactive and timely exchange of contextualized, actionable cyber threat information between its members.
