ICAO Cyber Security and Resilience Symposium

Acknowledging the urgency and importance of protecting civil aviation’s critical infrastructure, information and communication technology systems and data against cyber threats, Jordan Civil Aviation Regulatory Commission (CARC) is hosting the Cyber Security and Resilience Symposium in collaboration with the regional office of the International Civil Aviation organization (ICAO).

The objective of the Cyber Security and Resilience Symposium is to empower the aviation industry with prevention measures to mitigate the exploitation of critical information system and fostering a cyber-security culture that promotes a resilient and secure cyberspace. While the aspect of cyber security was certainly not unknown in the civil aviation industry, recent events have raised questions concerning the safety & security of civil aviation in the media. Global aviation continues to experience regular attacks on several fronts; whether it is a single drone bringing an international airport to a standstill, a breach leading to the widespread loss of customer data or disruption caused by a direct attack on operational systems, the cost of vulnerabilities in our aviation systems is mounting.
