Cyberattacks against airports and airlines are on the rise.
Attackers are mainly going after the personal information of passengers or seeking a ransom payment after encrypting your data.
It is now more important than ever that aviation organizations start to implement strong cybersecurity practices.
Most cyberattacks are successful because of a lack of employee training where they inadvertently click on a malicious link or download a malicious file from an email.
One of the best defenses against a cyberattack is to properly train employees on how to identify a fraudulent email.
Cybersecurity best practices include a multi-layered approach which is best accomplished by trained professionals.
Software and operating systems need to be regularly updated and maintained. These trained professionals will also be able to perform this task as well as monitor your network and systems looking for anomalies.
Aeronautek is a managed service provider that specializes in working with aviation companies.
We provide a complete cybersecurity package to best protect your networks and data.
Our service plan can also protect your passenger's personal information that may be stored on your servers.
Did you know...
A new federal law now requires companies in the transportation sector, including those in aviation they must now report within 72 hours to CISA of a cyberattack or 24 hours if they make a ransomware payment.

All of our managed services clients will receive the following:
Advanced next generation firewall
This will be your first line of defense from threats that are trying to gain entry into your network from the internet.
This appliance will also contain a web filter to prevent users from visiting questionable or prohibited websites.
email spam filtering
All incoming and outgoing emails will pass through a spam filter looking for viruses and links pointing to malicious sites.
Your users will also be able to send encrypted emails when the need arises.
endpoint software firewall
This monitors incoming and outgoing internet traffic from the device.
If a suspicious process is detected trying to gain access to the internet, this firewall will send us an alert in real-time.
Most organizations do not provide basic cybersecurity training to their users.
This has created a commonly exploited entry for hackers.
With our training program, your users will be better able to identify possible fraudulent emails and what to do if they suspect an attack is underway.
One of the best ways to protect your online accounts is to use strong and unique passwords for every website.
We will implement a password manager your users can use to generate and store strong passwords for each web login they use.
We will also turn on multi-factor authentication to better protect those accounts in the event a password is compromised.
Security Patches and updates
New vulnerabilities are discovered every day.
One way to stay ahead of cyber criminals is to install patches and updates to fix these vulnerabilities before they are exploited.
In some instances, it would be possible for users to run a program or try to make system changes that they should not have access to.
To circumvent this, we will install an application that blocks these changes and any changes that need to be made will have to get approved by us.
Antivirus and MDR software
Antivirus software will protect your computers from known threats that will attempt to do harm or steal data.
The managed detection and response software will look for unknown threats by looking at processes that are acting suspiciously or doing tasks that most normal programs will not do.
The MDR software is also monitored by a team of cyber security professionals 24/7/365 to verify the nature of the threat.
Files can get accidentally deleted or hardware can fail which is why it is very important to have backups available to recover from such an event.
Not only will a local backup be done, but your data will also be backed up to an offsite and secure location in the event of a major disaster where the local backup may be lost as well.
A DNS filter is an additional layer of security that will block users or processes from accessing fraudulent websites.
This is an additional layer of security to protect your computers before any malicious code is able to run and infect your systems.
Microsoft 365 email and office apps
Stay in touch with your staff and customers with the most popular email platform.
You will also be able to collaborate and share files with your users by using Microsoft Teams - a great option for users that work remotely.
Imagine that a user has an issue that needs prompt support to fix an issue.
We will be able to log in to their computer to fix most problems within minutes instead of you waiting for a technician to arrive.
