London, UK – November 5, 2018 - SecurityMatters, a global leader in industrial control systems (ICS) network assessment and protection, will join the Cyber Senate Aviation Cyber Security and Resilience Summit (AVCIP2018) running November 6-7 in London, United Kingdom.
The aviation sector is a critical and potentially lucrative target for hackers and state-sponsored cyber warfare initiatives. Disrupting operations of any airport building automation system (BAS) for example, even for a handful of hours, could result in millions of dollars of lost revenue for airlines and related vendors.
"At SecurityMatters, what we observe is that most threats affecting various aviation-related applications target industrial control and process control networks. Additionally, traffic control networks for ATM resemble traditional ICS networks in many ways, from their reliability requirements to their usage of specific protocols. This makes a holistic, scalable cybersecurity strategy that utilizes technologies that excel at industrial threat detection critical for both aviation risk management and process optimization." said Elisa Costante, Chief Technology Officer at SecurityMatters.
At the Aviation Cyber Security Summit, Dr. Elisa Costante will discuss the escalating cyber risk and resilience challenges associated with the adoption and convergence of operational technologies in enterprise facing architecture.
The complete program of the event is available here.
