Conversation Aviation Magazine #3 - Article on Cyber Risks
The 3rd edition of the Conversation Aviation Magazine has been published and includes a dedicated article about understanding Cybersecurity Risks.
But what type of risks are we are talking about and what do we need to do to mitigate them?
What can you do?
There are three things you can do to help our efforts to mitigate cyber risks.
- Firstly, please follow all company procedures when it comes to operating or maintaining any systems that you use in your day-to-day work and when it comes to the use of USB sticks.
- Be aware of potential phishing or other possible attacks that might come to you as an individual, especially through email. Ana and her security team continually produce promotions of common threats and things you can do and these are always available on the company intranet.
- Finally, please report any situation that you think might cause Cyber Risks. For example, if you open anything by accident in an email, please report it so we can take action quickly. The main thing is to report it, Cyber Risks are continually evolving and even the most aware people can be taken in – don’t be afraid, nothing will happen to you if you report something.

But who is Ana? Who are part of the security team? And which company is this?
Well Safewings of course!
Maybe you need a little bit of context here...Let me tell you a bit more about the magazine then.
The Conversation Aviation Magazine is published every quarter as an EASA publication, created in a collaborative way with organisations from across the aviation community. In principle, each publication takes place after the end of each quarter, aiming at 4 editions per year.
During the course of each quarter, the articles are published on the Air Ops Community so you can read them as individual articles and not just as part of the magazine. Videos, posters, and even some podcasts on the different topics are also included.
This edition is focusing on Winter Ops. Apart from the article on cyber security, a great selection of articles covers the Winter Ops theme including the mental health of staff, the role of human factors / aviation psychologists, the origins of flight education, communication and standard phraseology and sustainable flying.
