European Centre for Cybersecurity in Aviation (ECCSA)

ECCSA is a voluntary, cooperative partnership within the aviation community to better understand the emerging cybersecurity risks in aviation and to provide collective support in dealing with cybersecurity incidents, weaknesses and unauthorised interactions that could potentially affect the sector’s resiliency and safety.


The participation to ECCSA is voluntary as well as the information sharing. Organisations relevant for the safety and security of European Civil Aviation may apply for ECCSA membership, assured to meet applicable security selection criteria.
