AirCyber

Standardization and harmonization of IT & IS security throughout the European Aerospace & Defense Supply Chain

Context

The AeroSpace and Defense Extended Enterprise is composed of multiple small and medium sized companies, having usually their ICT managed in silos with limited capability to protect their business from cyber-attacks or even to detect they are subject to these attacks. However today, these companies are the first target of cyber criminals while being the less protected.

Over the past 5 years, the experience confirmed that attackers shifted their efforts to suppliers, as illustrated by multiple security issues reports.

Unfortunately, while having spent lot of efforts to secure their internal ICT, the security protections of BoostAeroSpace founders (Airbus, Dassault Aviation, Safran, Thales) deployed inside their ICT are not deployed equally to their partners.

Therefore, in order to solve this urgent issue, BoostAeroSpace together with the support and involvement of security specialists from Airbus, Dassault Aviation, Safran an Thales, launched the AirCyber Program.
