Episode 009 The KYND #StopTheBad Podcast: Are cyber risks in aviation reaching new altitudes?

June 24, 2021

Supporting 65.5 million jobs around the globe and transporting over a third of world trade by value, the aviation industry forms a critical part of the global economy and infrastructure. But the rapid digitisation of the sector, whilst providing numerous undeniable benefits for passengers and customers, has also introduced a wide range of new cyber risks – making the industry a particularly attractive target for attackers.  

In the latest episode of #TheKYNDPodcast, KYND’s CEO, Andy Thomas, and our very special guest experts - John Head of Ed Broking and Bill Parnell of PIIQ, joined Melanie Hayes to discuss some of the key cyber threats endangering aviation, how the industry is rising to the challenge and share their best practice advice for aerospace companies to help them bolster their cyber resilience.

The areas covered include:

  • Just how serious the threat of emerging cyber risks is in the aviation industry
  • What are the key factors making the sector a prime target for cybercriminals
  • Real-life aviation cyber security breaches examples and its far-reaching impacts
  • Brokers' perspective on the rising risk of cybercrime for the industry
  • The proactive steps aviation companies should take to mitigate the risks and bolster their defences.
