Aviation Cybersecurity Symposium

Cybersecurity Symposium 2016The fourth SITA Aviation Cybersecurity Symposium was held in Frankfurt in October 2019, bringing together more than 35 IT and cybersecurity specialists across the air transport industry globally.

The two-day event presented a rare and timely opportunity for these experts to share their experience and chart the way forward for an industry which is facing an unprecedented growth in the number of cyber threats. These threats have the potential to disrupt the industry if left unchecked and SITA is at the forefront of ensuring our industry is prepared to manage this changing landscape.

The SITA Community Cyber Threat Center (CCTC) shared their observations and solutions. The center was formed as a result of discussions at SITA's first Cybersecurity symposium in London. Its aim is to drive greater collaboration and information-sharing across the industry.

The center facilitates direct engagements among its members and a community-wide exchange of cyber threat intelligence via a secure online platform. The timely sharing of information on cyber threats, vulnerabilities and impacts has become pivotal to the effective management of cyber risks. SITA demonstrated to delegates how the use of this intelligence can help prevent a cyber attack.
