This professional short course will evaluate and provide awareness training related to cybersecurity issues that are of specific interest to the aviation and aerospace industry. The course will primarily focus on the risk management aspects of information security -- risk identification, assessment, and mitigation -- and cover technical issues, as appropriate. Providing the knowledge of how and why to get ahead of the potential for commercial losses, negligence claims, public relations problems, and disruption of operations is increasingly important in relation to this aspect of the industry. Learn more about the importance of managerial awareness of cybersecurity issues.
Although it is expected that attendees have some knowledge of cybersecurity issues, the target audience of this course is managerial rather than technical. This course is aimed towards anyone in an operation or management role in the aviation or aerospace industry, including airlines, airports, cargo lines, commercial space operators, aviation equipment or airframe manufacturers or vendors, communications providers, etc.
Learning objectives of this program include:
Course participants will receive electronic copies of all course presentation materials, as well as pertinent articles, papers, and industry guidelines. In addition, students will actively participate in an exercise to aid them in identifying cybersecurity issues most pertinent to their organization and a method with which to prioritize which are the most pressing. Guidelines for risk assessment and the creation of policies and procedures will also be provided."If left unaddressed and unmanaged, cybersecurity vulnerabilities can be an existential threat to airlines, airports, and other players in the aviation and aerospace industry. This course will help managers, operators, executives, and other aviation professionals get a handle on these problems and devise strategies that they can use to produce policies and procedures with which to address them." - Dr. Gary Kessler, Chair of Security Studies and International Affairs, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University
