The services were developed to specifically meet increasing demand for cybersecurity in the industry. SITA’s Airline IT Trends Survey 2016 shows that 91 percent of airlines plan to invest in cybersecurity programs during the next three years.
Together, the companies will use their expertise to detect cyber activity relevant to airlines and airports. The join center will provide appropriate containment and remedial action, ensuring that a company’s digital assets are safe from attack.
The joint center is the first of a new portfolio of cybersecurity products and services being developed by SITA. The portfolio will help airlines and airports identify, detect and react to cyber threats while protecting their company assets from attack.
In addition to creating a customized portfolio for the industry, SITA in 2016 identified cybersecurity as one of five keys areas where it is exploring new solutions on behalf of its members as well as the wider air transport community.
