Better anticipate and react to cyberattacks?

Barely a day goes by without a cyberattack in the headlines. Thanks to its interconnectivity and complexity, the air transport industry is an attractive target for cyber threat actors. Premeditated cyberattacks can cause anything from delays and flight cancellations to global disruption and ripples of economic and social turmoil.

As the attack numbers grow and attack sophistication increases, new types and levels of risk cannot be overcome with increased IT spending alone.

Even though cybersecurity is on the top of the CIO agenda, only one third of boards at airlines and a fifth at airports, have fully integrated cybersecurity into their business plans.
