CAA debuts aviation cyber security assurance scheme.

The UK’s Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has launched a scheme, developed in partnership with security certification body Crest, that it hopes will play a key role in its strategy to enable the aviation industry to manage its security risks without compromising aviation safety.

Under the Assure framework, accredited cybersecurity professionals will have to demonstrate “extensive” knowledge in one of three key specialisms: cyber audit and risk management; technical cybersecurity expert; and ICS/OT [industrial control systems/operational technology] expert. The professionals’ organisations will also have to have Crest membership in one of its core disciplines and been reviewed by both Crest and the CAA.
