Cyber Security Aviation

Our high quality Cyber Security services help the aviation sector protect their valuable assets, ground and air systems.


Vulnerability to Cyber-Attacks

The airline industry is vulnerable to cyber-attacks on multiple fronts. Those vulnerabilities include the exploitation of weaknesses in legacy systems, infiltration through wireless technologies and unsafe connections to the supply chain.

Aside from the nightmare of a strike on air-control or in-flight systems, a key target for cyber-criminals is the enormous amount of customer data held by airlines due to the value of that intellectual property.

Aviation systems face an average of 1000 cyber-attacks each month

Protecting Your Aircraft

We use the full range of our expertise to protect airlines from being damaged by cyber-attacks. Data protection, cyber defence, intrusion detection, attack analysis services, incident response and security breach investigation are just some of the tools in our armoury for airlines.

Advanced Firewall solutions.

Offering complete application and data control along with superior intrusion prevention and file analysis with no loss of network performance.

Aircraft Network Security Program

Working with airlines to create and implement an Aircraft Network Security Program (ANSP) to build cyber security policies and processes.


Gain visibility of your critical assets and receive recommendations to mitigate the identified risks.

Drone Detection & Mitigation

Protect your infrastructure from the growing threat of drones with A.I.M.

Electronic counter measures

Using state of the art equipment we carry out searches for conventional and non-conventional eavesdropping devices including digital and modern gsm-based devices.


The best way to avert a cyber-attack is to be prepared. Procedures we follow include the performance of a risk assessment, development of policies and procedures, and the provision of security guidelines for employees.


We help airlines to be proactive rather than reactive in the battle against cyber-attacks. By identifying weaknesses in your systems, using knowledge of previous attacks on the industry and anticipating the behaviour of threat actors, we can predict possible scenarios. By being predictive, we vastly improve your readiness in the event of a cyber-attack.


Our security-by-design for airlines includes delivery of a full range of services, from incident response to endpoint protection, cloud security, data protection and encryption and penetration testing. Each strongly contributes to the prevention of a cyber-attack.


Additional Aviation Services

CDS brings extensive experience in the development and implementation of cyber and data security solutions to protect your data and privacy.

Incident Response

Response and containment in the event of an attack, helping to identify possible entry points, identify stolen data, clean up affected systems and offer clear, concise guidance on what measures to take post-event to assist in prevention of any future compromises.

Assessments & Testing

Simply installing a cyber and privacy solution and not reviewing, monitoring or updating regularly introduces and allows an unnecessary level of risk. CDS are experts in assessing and testing systems to ensure they are working to include penetration testing, vulnerability assessments, remote monitoring and wireless network assessments.

ARM – Alert, Record, Monitor

Knowing what is happening on any network at any point in time is of paramount importance. Without continued alerting, recording and monitoring of events, network activity and system changes, how could you possibly know a breach has occurred or a security risk exists?

Privacy & GDPR

Do you know where your data is stored, where it's going and who has access to it? CDS provide protection and privacy of personal, confidential and commercially sensitive data regardless of where this is stored, be that onboard a vessel, corporate offices or mobile devices.

Counter Measures

Eavesdropping and spying are increasingly more prevalent for high profile and / or wealthy businesses or individuals. CDS thwarts unwanted cybercrime through comprehensive TSCM electronic counter-measures services including the detection of visual and listening surveillance devices and countersurveillance software for accessing computing and mobile devices.

Anti-Drone Protection

As the number of drones grows exponentially, so do the challenges. The wide reach of drone surveillance technology increases the risk of Cyber Security attack and the threat to privacy. A.I.M is the only anti-drone system that detects, guards and protects high-value assets against the new and growing threat of drones.
