Agreement Extends Key Cybersecurity Services to Global Air Transport Network.
SecurityScorecard, the global leader in security ratings, and the Aviation ISAC (A-ISAC) announced today they have entered an agreement to provide A-ISAC members a complimentary enterprise platform license for SecurityScorecard IT and third-party risk management services.
The A-ISAC is the global nonprofit membership association enabling aviation companies to securely share cybersecurity information with the goal of reducing operational cyber risk across the industry.
A-ISAC members can use the SecurityScorecard enterprise platform license to monitor their organization as well as a group of third parties they leverage to run their respective businesses. The critical information provided via SecurityScorecard’s platform helps companies report to the board, rate their vendors, and make key business decisions faster and more efficiently.
“Aviation is a highly visible target for cyber threat actors, and we continue to see increased cybersecurity activity targeting the sector. Our agreement with SecurityScorecard provides our members a way to have a broader view of their cybersecurity posture while simultaneously identifying security gaps with vendors,” said Jeffrey Troy, A-ISAC president. “This is crucial in enabling our members to identify and improve potential weaknesses in their overall cyber defense.”
The aviation industry has been heavily impacted in recent months, with budget constraints and a dispersed workforce among the challenges. The A-ISAC agreement with SecurityScorecard will benefit the industry by enabling automation and streamlining cybersecurity processes as companies implement cost-cutting measures.
“SecurityScorecard is proud to provide support to an industry that renders a critical service for society by strengthening and stabilizing the aviation supply chain,” said Aleksandr Yampolskiy, CEO and co-founder of SecurityScorecard. “Most airlines have large vendor ecosystems and possess sensitive and valuable data, making them an attractive attack target. Providing this service to A-ISAC members reinforces our mission of making the world a safer place by supporting the aviation industry.”
