Why is Cyber and Operational Resilience So Important for Airports Today?

Faced with global shocks and growing cybersecurity threats, airport leadership is under pressure to improve cybersecurity, protect expanding digital systems and safeguard passenger services.

Challenges include:

  • Major business disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, war-related flight restrictions and extreme weather
  • Climbing fuel costs
  • Rising cyber threats on critical infrastructure
  • Growing cybersecurity compliance requirements
  • Complex, diverse airport subsystems with high node counts
  • Increasingly connected systems and technology adoption
  • Unifying security across IT and OT

To achieve cyber resilience and meet compliance and security KPIs, airports need OT/IoT visibility and security.

“The pandemic brought the aviation industry to a dead stop but had the opposite impact on cybercrime. Many experts reported the rise of cyberattacks during this period. This upward trend calls for unprecedented actions to tackle and build resilience for corporate and interconnected systems.”

–  Nick Careen, Senior Vice-President Airport, Cargo, Passenger and Security, International Air Transport Associatio

With the rapid pace of digitalization, regulations may not keep up with the emerging cyber risks. Aviation-sector organizations need to ensure their cyber risk posture and efforts extend beyond compliance, towards a holistic risk management approach.
