7 Takeaways from the Annual Aviation ISAC Summit 

The Aviation ISAC Summit gathers experts dedicated to enhancing aviation security. This year in Dublin, specialists added their real-world experiences and challenges to a collective conversation to enrich industry-wide understanding of a modern, cyber-secure aviation ecosystem. Read on for key takeaways from the summit that provide a framework for enhancing aviation cybersecurity strategies and solutions.

What is Observability?

Observability refers to the ability to derive real-time, context-rich insights from refined onboard data to enable not just a more comprehensive understanding of the state of a system—or system of systems—but ultimately to enable smarter, faster decisions and actions.

It unlocks a new level of decision-making by providing a clear understanding of what’s happening on a vehicle holistically, the whole being greater than the sum of its parts.

With observability, operators and maintainers can see and understand exactly what’s going on within a platform’s onboard systems and components collectively at the moment the issue manifests.

Shift5 Helps Streamline Regulatory Compliance for Fleet Vehicles 

Today, Shift5 announced the release of the Shift5 Compliance Module, which helps automate compliance efforts for data created on board fleet vehicles. This inaugural release, developed in partnership with aviation industry experts, enables automation of the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) guidelines in Advisory Circular (AC) 119-1 requiring operators to create an Aircraft Network Security Program (ANSP).

3 Potential Cyber Threats to Commercial Airliners

While security researchers continue to investigate cyber vulnerabilities, airlines are keenly aware they could be targets of cyber attacks. Research findings show us why it’s essential to continue searching for threats, and taking steps to prevent them. Read the blog now to see the top cybersecurity threats to commercial aircraft.

Russia Raises the Stakes for Our Critical Infrastructure

The invasion of Ukraine and the sanctions imposed by the West on Russia has raised international tensions to levels not seen in a generation. And although the specter of escalation into a full-scale conventional war looms large, intelligence sources say retaliation will more likely come from state-sponsored cyberattacks on our critical infrastructure.

The Cyber Attacks that Impact our Daily Lives

When most people think of cybersecurity or cyber attacks, they typically think of malicious activity targeting sensitive IT (information technology) assets. These assets often contain highly-valuable data that can be stolen, sold, or held for ransom by a motivated adversary.
