Evidence Based Cybersecurity Training for Airline Pilots
Aviation Cyber Safety
The aviation industry traditionally relies on complex technology and the internet. The rise of sophisticated cyber-attacks makes cybersecurity an increasingly important key topic in the boardroom of any airline or aviation-related company. The vulnerability of modern aeroplanes to cyber attacks requires the full attention of all involved parties, from the aircraft manufacturer to the pilots operating it.
Cybersecurity for pilots
Cybersecurity attacks on aeroplanes can be subtle and difficult to detect, so it is important for pilots to be able to recognise a cyber attack and take appropriate action. Simulator training has always been essential for airline pilots. A cybersecurity attack on aircraft during flight can only be experienced and realistically trained in flight simulators. This will allow pilots to practice identifying and responding to cyber threats effectively.
Aviation Cyber Academy
The Aviation Cyber Academy (ACA) trains commercial pilots to recognise a cyber attack on their airplane in flight, and how to manage that event. A 4 hour masterclass prior to a 2 hour full simulator scenario training, called Evidence Based Training (EBT) teaches not only the basics of cybersecurity and latest threat intelligence, but also aircraft specifics like threat surface, ARINC and system knowledge. Full flight simulator scenario training will confirm cybersecurity awareness is fully understood and integrated in emergency situation management, thereby elevating future proof cyber safety to the next level.
