ACI World and A-ISAC have signed an agreement that better enables ACI members to join A-ISAC for access to airport-specific cyber-threat intelligence and actionable data to help them build cyber resilience.
Both organizations play an active role in supporting the global aviation network. With this collaboration they have created a partnership that better protects global aviation stakeholders, including the traveling public.
Angela Gittens, director general, ACI World, said, “This agreement sets out ACI and A-ISAC’s shared objective to improve cyber resilience in every sector of the global air transport network. Airports are critical to a successful aviation infrastructure and building their cyber resilience is a significant goal for 2020 and beyond. With the rapid increase in cyberattacks targeting airports, knowledge gained through the Aviation ISAC is a vital component of preparedness and incident response.”
In addition to overarching aviation industry cyber-threat intelligence, airports that join the Aviation ISAC will have access to a dedicated working group, a quarterly report that covers the latest airport-specific threats and trends, and other content that is solely focused on airport cybersecurity concerns.
The agreement is not limited to cyber-threat intelligence sharing. The organizations will work together at industry events and activities with the shared goal of ensuring a safer and more secure aviation infrastructure that recognizes airports as key stakeholders.
