Aviation Cybersecurity Symposium

Cybersecurity Symposium 2016In May this year, SITA held its second Aviation Cybersecurity Symposium in Dubai, bringing together more than 30 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 symposium was also the first opportunity to present the SITA Community Cyber Threat Center (CCTC), the result of discussions at last year’s symposium in London aimed at driving 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 and SITA demonstrated to delegates how the use of this intelligence can help prevent a cyber attack.

We also shared our commercial range of threat intelligence products and services to help the industry supplement its cyber defenses.
