Aircraft Cyber Security Development and Continuing Airworthiness


The aircraft risk profile for cyber-attacks has changed significantly with ever increasing digitisation and connectivity, such as e-enabled aircraft, new generation avionics and use of Internet Protocol (IP) for internal and external communication. To ensure safety, security and the protection of aircraft from cyber-attacks, EASA has published ED 2020/006/R to include cybersecurity in all certification specifications (CS-23, CS-25, CS-27, CS-29, CS-APU, CS-E, CS-P, CS-ETSO). In addition, EASA has published Part-IS (Information Security) which will contribute to further improve the cyber-resilience of approved organisations by requiring the implementation of an ISMS (Information Security Management System).

To address the demand of the industry for a consistent practice of security by design for aircraft and to have a harmonised approach in demonstrating compliance to the new aviation cybersecurity rules, EUROCAE WG-72 has developed three standards: ED-202A, ED-203A and ED-204A. The documents ED-202A and ED-203A provide a standard and guidance for developing aircraft, aircraft systems and parts from initial design to type certification. ED-204A provides the standard and guidance for maintaining airworthiness of aircraft under consideration of a cybersecurity perspective.

  • Understand, how to use available tools and apply available standards to manage cyber-risk in for aviation in a standards-led way
  • Learn key activities and best practice used in auditing and certification.
  • Instructors are leading experts on aviation cyber security and regulations.
  • Share experiences with colleagues from other aviation stakeholders/countries.
  • Extensive course handouts including ED-202A, ED-203A, and ED-204A and a handbook that shall serve participants also after the training as reference.
  • Optional distance learning programme to allow flexible training from the comfort of your home or the office.
  • Certificate of completion of the course
  • The course content is structured for all background in these roles – whether IT with a security background, aviation backgrounds in system, software or hardware development or aircraft certification.
  • Anyone working in a development or certification role exposed to cybersecurity within the design organisations and their suppliers – including design approval holders for Type Certificates in Airplanes, Rotorcraft, Engines, Propellers; design approval holders for Supplemental Type Certificates (STC); Design Approval Holders for (European) Technical Standard Orders (ETSO/TSO); and the suppliers of systems, software and hardware to any of the Design Approval Holders.
  • Anyone working in design organisations in departments issuing Security Operator Guidance or Instructions for Continued Airworthiness and anyone in airlines, operators and maintenance, repair, overhaul (MRO) organisations in a cyber capacity – whether IT, operational or maintenance.
  • Anyone working in aviation (airport, ANSP, airline, manufacturing industry (developing, producing or maintaining aircraft) plus regulatory and industrial audiences, who needs to deal with cyber security as part of their day-to-day activities.
