Advancements in modern technology, as well as the adoption of innovative digital solutions and applications have helped the aviation industry continue to grow and capture more of the transportation market. However, these same advancements and innovations have drastically increased attack surfaces, and the inherent interconnectivity required to do business makes proactive security a must.

Cyber Threats Targeting Today's Aviation Industry
The aviation industry is tasked with protecting an enormous amount of data, applications, networks, endpoints, and cloud environments. From flight operations and security controls to online and on-prem reservation systems to in-flight entertainment and Wi-Fi, the aviation industry operates on interconnectivity. While this has drastically improved the quality of customer experiences and the efficiency and performance of aviation organizations, this expanding digital ecosystem has also created expanded attack surfaces that not all are equipped to protect.

Major Threats

While the aviation industry is susceptible to everything from DDoS attacks to nation-state attacks, the most common major threats the industry faces are ransomware and social engineering attacks like phishing and business email compromise.
