From terrorist attacks to geopolitical posturing, if there is one industry that tends to find itself dragged onto the frontline of global security and cyber risks, it is aviation.
While flying has always been one of the safest ways to travel, thanks to its wide-ranging international regulatory frameworks, aviation incidents have an outsize impact on the public consciousness. From recent airport attacks in Brussels and Istanbul to the shooting down of MH17 over Ukraine, horrifying images are more powerful than reassuring statistics.
Emerging technologies, the changing character of war, a widening cast of actors and growing reliance on cyber are changing the nature of the threats – creating pressure on the industry to make sure it maintains its safety level, with the number of air travellers projected to nearly double in the next 20 years.
Here are some of four ways in which the likely evolution of the international security landscape over the coming years will affect aviation – and four recommendations for how the industry should react.
Firstly, Technology is rapidly democratizing the ability to inflict large-scale damage.
Furthr, Attacks that would once have been within the purview of only a few major states are becoming conceivable for a much wider range of non-state actors and individuals.
Secondly, The merging of cyber and physical creates new vulnerabilities.
Also, The democratized capacity to wreak large-scale havoc is closely related to the merging of the virtual world with the physical: increasingly, remote attacks can cause serious real-world disruptions….
