Will cybersecurity and potential resulting safety issues play a more important role in the future of aviation?
Aviation is evolving, like the majority of other technological sectors, towards digitalization and systems interconnection in order to improve users’ experience, provide new services, as well as reduce human errors. The flipside of this evolution is that opportunities for hackers, i.e. the “attack surface”, will also increase. To deal with these potential issues, aviation will need to implement a structured approach such as an Aviation Security Information Management System.
