SITA CyberSecurity

Protect your business from increasingly sophisticated and targeted cyber threats

Overview

Airports and airlines are increasingly turning to a wide range of technology to better manage their operations and provide an improved service to their passengers. Securing these technology systems, protecting the information and data that these systems manage, requires an effective cybersecurity solution.

In fact, the 2016 Airline IT Trends survey reveals that 91% of respondents plan to invest in cybersecurity programs over the next three years and 63% say cybersecurity is a board level responsibility at their airline, while 94% of airports are investing in cybersecurity incident response management.

Combining our in-depth knowledge of airlines and airports’ critical IT assets and processes with the expertise of several high-profile cybersecurity companies such as Airbus, we have developed a comprehensive cybersecurity solution. Ranging from consultancy for the assessment of cyber threat and vulnerability, to detection of cyber attacks, response and protection, SITA CyberSecurity addresses the continuing emergence and escalation of cybersecurity threats to the aviation industry.
