Atlantic Council releases new report: Aviation cybersecurity: Scoping the challenge


Today, the Atlantic Council’s Cyber Statecraft Initiative, within the Scowcroft Center for Strategy and Security, launched a new report titled “Aviation Cybersecurity: Scoping the Challenge” and the results of the first-ever global survey on aviation cybersecurity. The report will be celebrated with a public launch and discussion led by Pete Cooper, report author and Senior Fellow with the Cyber Statecraft Initiative, and featuring insights from Alan Pellegrini, CEO of Thales North America and Atlantic Council Board Director, and Dr. Will Roper, U.S. Air Force Assistant Secretary for Acquisition Technology and Logistics.

The Atlantic Council’s aviation cybersecurity programming was first developed in 2017 in an effort to understand and develop actionable recommendations for the complex cybersecurity challenges the aviation sector faces. The report’s findings come at a time when the aviation ecosystem as a whole is becoming increasingly integrated and digitized. International stakeholders such as the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) are seeking a concerted, whole of sector approach to better understand the cyber vulnerabilities within this ecosystem and to ensure that no country is left behind when it comes to maintaining safety, security, and resiliency.
