Airline Cybersecurity Preliminary Agreement Reached

A team comprising US government and aviation experts has arrived at a preliminary agreement on proposals to improve cybersecurity in the airline industry.

Recommendations are expected to include installing alert systems in cockpits to warn against compromise of critical safety networks. A progress report on the study will be presented at a US-European safety conference.

The panel, formed by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to protect the aviation industry from hacks, started work last summer with more than 36 members and observers including air safety regulators and aviation experts. It will submit its report with only generic recommendations to the FAA in August.
