Cyber security is vitally important to the aviation sector which is heavily reliant on computer-based systems and information management. Airport and airline systems are potential targets for hacking and compromise by criminals and terrorists who wish to exploit vulnerabilities for gain or to cause harm. The course considers current and emerging cyber threats and practical countermeasures that can help reduce the risk of attack or compromise and provide reassurance.  

The course will provide attendees with a risk assessment methodology which they can apply in their own workplaces, and an understanding of how the cyber threat can quickly create serious consequences for aviation operations.

Regulations concerned:

• ICAO Annex 17 (Tenth Edition, April 2017)
• ICAO global Risk Context Statement (RCS)
• The Convention against Transnational Organised Crime (The Palermo Convention) 2000
