Workshop on Cybersecurity in Aviation



Workshop on Cybersecurity in Aviation

31 May 2017, Brussels, EASA


Cybersecurity incidents are increasing in frequency, magnitude and complexity, and have no border. Civil aviation is an increasingly attractive target for adversaries and new technologies such as e-enabled aircraft, new generation CNS/ATM systems and drones are changing the risk landscape of the aviation system.

At the same time, the rationalisation and concentration of the aviation IT infrastructure and the multiplication of network connexions will create new vulnerabilities.

There is a concern that the aviation system is insufficiently protected against cyber threats and that there is an urgent need to develop a holistic response.

The EASA High Level Meeting Cybersecurity in Civil Aviation concluded that to ensure both a level playing field and a balanced sharing of risk management, cybersecurity in aviation will require risk and performance based sectorial regulations that benefit from industry standards to the greatest extent possible.


EASA and EUROCAE are jointly organizing a workshop to discuss current activities and future regulatory and standardization needs with key stakeholders from industry, airspace users, Member States, European institutions, academia.


The Cybersecurity Workshop will be held on 31 May 2017, at the EASA premises, 100 avenue de Cortenbergh, Brussels, Belgium.


Further information on the workshop is available at the EASA website and the EUROCAE website.
