Protecting essential services and control systems networks in the aviation sector is imperative and in many cases neglected in relation to embedded systems in modern architecture.
The proliferation and advancement of operational technologies and the Internet of Things, the convergence of IT and OT have enhanced operational efficiency but paradoxically has increased the attack surface exponentially across all critical national infrastructure.
Now in its 2nd year, the Cyber Senate Aviation Cyber Security and Resilience Summit (AVCIP2018) will take place on 6th and 7th in London United Kingdom 2018. This two-day executive forum will include presentations, roundtable working groups and panel sessions.
Together we will address the escalating cyber risk and resilience challenges associated with the adoption and convergence of operational technologies in enterprise facing architecture. Practitioners will gain further insight into how to best respond to evolving cyber threats, the importance of effective risk management throughout the aviation supply chain, innovations in detection and mitigation, configuration management and how can we incorporate resilience into critical control system components and business process.
