The AIAA (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics) has published its decision paper“A Framework for Aviation Cybersecurity”.

The report describe the different cyber threat to the world’s $2.2 trillion commercial aviation enterprise, and outline the lack of global agreement on cybersecurity as it relates to aviation.

Speaking in a press conference, the AIAA President-Elect Jim Albaugh said that “this Framework recognizes the need to reach a unified understanding of the threats and the risks posed to aviation, and seeks to foster a cybersecurity culture that protects the enterprise.”

He also said that “the global aviation system is a very complex and integrated system. As dependence on this system increases, it also becomes a target for those seeking to disrupt the industry and the global economy. The impacts of an attack on our national air transportation system would be felt far beyond the aerospace industry, and solutions must take those interests into account.”

“The Framework stresses the need for the world’s aviation community to establish a cohesive cybersecurity regime, in particular by: establishing a single framework for cybersecurity throughout the ecosystem; establishing a protocol for communicating the threats and building enhanced situational awareness throughout the aviation enterprise; strengthening defensive systems and defining design and operational principles for them; providing cohesive situational response; identifying and developing ongoing research and development priorities; and building a culture of unified collaboration and cooperation between governments and private entities.”
