SESAR Joint Undertaking (SJU)
The SJU required expert advice, guidance and recommendations on how Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR) should respond to emerging cybersecurity concerns and how to strengthen their approach to cybersecurity within the SJU work programme with a particular focus on their Research and Innovation activities.
Role of Egis
We led a consortium with Thales AirSystems and Thales Communications and Security.
The role for the team was to produce a major study illustrating the challenges with System Wide Information Management (SWIM), including an introduction to the current problem in the industry and to examine how cyber-risk is changing in air traffic management (ATM).
Egis produced a full report and a publicly available 23-page summary, describing the conclusions drawn at the European-level in terms of an overarching framework for a new approach to cybersecurity. The report delivered a threat and vulnerability assessment (including a set of scenarios), a target framework (both for SESAR and for Europe as a whole), a cybersecurity maturity assessment (of SESAR 1) and a strategy and roadmap for embedding cybersecurity within SESAR 2020.
