Posted 19 October 2017 · Add Comment

Inmarsat recently joined the Aviation Information Sharing and Analysis Center (A-ISAC), the trusted international membership association for sharing cybersecurity information targeted at the aviation sector.



As part of the A-ISAC, Inmarsat joins a global contingent of aviation industry companies working collaboratively to develop and share timely and actionable information related to best practices, protective measures, threats and vulnerabilities. A-ISAC members are located on five continents and are leaders in the airline, airport, platform, satellite, and equipment manufacturing segments of the industry.

“Our decision to join the Aviation ISAC was driven by our desire to be proactive in protecting our systems from potential cyber-attacks,” said Joseph Teixeira, Inmarsat Vice President, Aviation Safety and Cybersecurity. “Companies can no longer operate as separate entities to keep pace with the constantly changing cybersecurity landscape. By being part of one association, we receive real-time updates and are networked across the global aviation ecosphere, expanding our security management capabilities exponentially. Inmarsat is proud to be part of the aviation association that is working to create a safer and more resilient global air space. ”

A-ISAC Executive Director, Jeff Troy highlighted the importance of Inmarsat’s membership in the association. “Protecting its products and networks is a top priority for Inmarsat. Cyber protection is a core component of the company’s security plans and by joining the association Inmarsat will play a key role in sharing best practices and helping the sector to innovate. We look forward to working with them as part of the A-ISAC community.”

Inmarsat is engaging with the A-ISAC at many levels, including organisational summits and workshops and participation in secure information exchanges with fellow members.
