As many of those have said and continue to say, it is not “if, but when.” Those are not words to generate fear and misunderstanding, they are a reality for ageing critical national infrastructure now converged with enterprise facing architecture.

The smart aviation sector is rapidly evolving, providing greater efficiencies for passengers, manufacturers and shareholders through advanced digital interconnectivity. These smart technologies can be seen throughout airports, aircraft, control towers and air service providers platforms giving owners and operators a potential real-time, 360-degree view of assets for predictive maintenance and cost saving applications.

The dependence on interconnectivity, however, has created cyber vulnerabilities throughout the aviation ecosystem. Protecting data and assets has become significantly more complex, and with the proliferation of IOT and integrated avionics, many aviation leaders are now realising they are playing catch up in the 21st century as the threats consistently evolve.

Join us on November 21/22 in London, England for the Cyber Senate Aviation Cyber Security Summit. We will address key issues such as the importance of information sharing and collaboration, supply chain and third party risk, incident response, integrating of cyber security and safety, IT and OT convergence, Security Operations Centres and much more as we further develop our collective insight in how we can mitigate risk and develop resilient end to end networks capable of delivering safety and value to all stakeholders

Aviation Cyber security: 21st Century business enabler for the sector

Cyber security is a business enabler in the 21st century and getting it right provides a foundation that is necessary to move the business forward. Companies need to understand and manage risks before decisions can be made that are transformational, which are key to the rapidly changing aviation industry.
Join us on November 21nd and 22nd in London. as the Cyber Senate looks at steps to align business strategy and goals with cyber security, key areas of focus for your cyber security program- getting the basics right and transforming from business silos to an enterprise program.

Delegates will be made up of key security decision makers from airports and airlines around the world, government influencers, cyber security subject matter experts and some of the world’s leading solution providers in the sector.

The purpose of the summit is to collaborate, share information and devise a common strategy to tackle cyber threats.

Cyber experts to gather for aviation security conference


Cyber security and aviation experts from all over the world are set to gather in London this Autumn for the Aviation Cyber Security Summit.


Taking part in the Marriott Hotel in Regent’s Park on the 21st and 22nd November, the event will explore how to manage the tension between the ‘smart’ aviation industry and the inevitable security threat caused by the use of new digital technology.


Addressing key issues such as supply chain and third party risk, the importance of information sharing and collaboration, incident response and the integration of cyber security and safety, the event will explore how both the cyber security and aviation industries can work together to mitigate risks and improve safety without compromising efficiency.


As part of the event, there will be a number of panel sessions covering topics such as incident response, developing a culture of awareness, managing the skills gap and IT and operational technology convergence.


A number of experts in both the global aviation industry and security sector are also confirmed as speakers at the event. These include:

  • Filippos Komninos, Athens International Airport S.A., Information Security Specialist
  • Chris Blask, US ICS ISAC, Unisys Director Industrial Control Security
  • Jonas Jorgensen, Copenhagen Airports, IT Director
  • John Hird, Eurocontrol, ATM & Cyber Security Senior Expert Directorate
  • Mike Heath, Calgary Airport Authority, Information Security Lead
  • Anson Fong, Los Angeles World Airports, Chief Information Security Officer
  • Peter Williams, Manchester Airports Group (MAG), Chief Information Security Officer
  • Kevin Borley, Bristol Airport, Head of IT and Innovation
  • Chris Johnson, University of Glasgow, Head of Computing
  • Fazle R Quasha, Fort McMurray Airport Authority, Manager Information Technologies
  • Ladislav Kašpar, Czech Airlines, j.s.c., Head of Security and Emergency Response Planning
  • Paul Hunton, Hunton Woods, Digital Forensics Expert

Discussing the event, organiser James Nesbitt of Cyber Senate commented: “The aviation industry is evolving rapidly and the integration of numerous smart technologies in areas such as airports, aircrafts and control towers will undoubtedly help drive the sector forward.


“This tech brings with it many benefits, in everything from enhancing the customer experience to enabling asset owners to be more easily able to troubleshoot problems before they arise. However, it also makes aviation assets vulnerable to cyber threat and, perhaps in aviationmore so than in any other industry, security breaches have the potential to be truly catastrophic.


“Cyber threats to the aviation industry are constantly evolving and asset owners must ensure that they have the most up-to-date strategies to ensure that they can manage them. This event will help them do that.”




Location: London Marriott Hotel Regents Park, 128 King Henry’s Road, London, NW3 3ST
