Five organisations agree cybercrime roadmap

ICAO, IATA, Airports Council International, the Civil Air Navigation Services Organization and the International Coordinating Council of Aerospace Industry Associations have agreed a common roadmap to align their respective actions on cyber threats.

Recognizing that the safety and security of the global aviation system is vulnerable to attacks from cyber criminals, the organizations signed a new cybersecurity agreement last week formalizing their common front against hackers, “hacktivists,” cyber criminals and terrorists focused on malicious intent ranging from the theft of information and general disruption to potential loss of life.

ICAO Secretary General Raymond Benjamin said: “Our common goal in developing this agreement is to work more effectively together to establish and promote a robust cybersecurity culture and strategy for the benefit of all actors in our industry.”

The cyber agreement signatories will be more proactive in sharing critical information such as threat identification, risk assessment, and cybersecurity best practices. They will also encourage more substantial coordination at the State level between their respective government and industry stakeholders on all cybersecurity strategies, policies and plans.
