Altogether, they demonstrated that CyberSecurity turns out to be a collective priority for the Aerospace and Defense industry.

The answer lies in AirCyber, the Aerospace OEM-governed CyberSecurity support program that will increase Aerospace Supply Chain CyberSecurity resilience. Indeed, such program will enable both customers and industrial suppliers to act as a single company to protect against unbalanced threat of digitalization.

Given the participation and interest shown by the Aerospace and Defense supply chain, it has been a pleasure for BoostAeroSpace AirCyber Product Director Romain BOTTAN to present AirCyber program and animate this day dedicated to industrial suppliers.

Now it’s time to enable BoostAeroSpace’s customers to benefit from AirCyber collective services to combat the threat: with maturity assessments through OEMs validated surveys, sharing cyber documentation from OEMs, best practices, crisis management tool between trusted actors and through the dynamic catalog of trusted cyber products and services.

Subscription for the first 2019 wave is still ongoing; therefore, industrial suppliers are invited to join AirCyber in order to achieve the industry’s standardization objectives for CyberSecurity protection as soon as possible.

AirCyber CyberSecurity products and service catalog proposed to industrial suppliers are also opened. If you are a supplier of CyberSecurity services or products to our shareholders or to industrial suppliers, feel free to get in touch with us.

A great THANK YOU to all participants and guest speakers. BoostAeroSpace is looking forward to supporting supply chain stakeholders in their efforts to achieve the industry’s standardization objectives for CyberSecurity protection.
