Indra Air Traffic Systems obtains the hardest cybersecurity certification in the world

30/10/2019


  • Indra achieves the international certification ISO/IEC 27001 on Information Security.
  • It is one of the first companies in the sector to comply with all the specifications of the standard for its design, development and systems delivery processes.
  • Indra works with the world's leading navigation service providers and its systems manage the most complex and busiest air spaces.

31st October 2019.- Indra has obtained the international certification ISO/IEC 27001, guaranteeing that the air traffic systems it develops meet the most rigorous cybersecurity requirements.

The company has passed the external audit carried out by AENOR and is now one of the first companies in its sector in the world to comply with all the requirements established by the international standard ISO/IEC 27001.

Indra develops ATM systems for customers in 160 countries. In Europe, its solutions are used to manage some of the most complex and busiest air spaces. It is also one of the most important companies involved in developing the Single European Sky.

The company provides the aviation world with the technology necessary to manage more efficiently, cleanly and safely the increasing levels of air traffic. Their systems are highly regarded, and they have contributed to half a million safe landings on more than 1,200 runways.

Indra is one of the world's largest companies in the cybersecurity market and the defence cybersecurity market. It's clients include corporations, public administrations and armies.

The organization's expertise and specialization has allowed it to transform cybersecurity into a transversal adaptive capacity, capable of supporting all its developments and projects. The company is aware that secure systems can only be guaranteed if cybersecurity has been taken into account from the early stages of design.

International standard ISO/IEC 27001 defines an Information Security Management System that analyses and manages risks and threats to information systems and their processes/assets, and applies controls to mitigate these. The implementation of these systems sets Indra apart from its competitors and improves its competitiveness in a market that is increasingly aware of cyber risks and the costs involved in a cyber attack, in terms of prestige, passenger safety, financial losses and legal responsibilities.

Security is the overall objective of the aviation industry. Until now, control centres and towers were protected by 'digital' isolation, making it virtually impossible for them to receive an attack.

However, due to increasing system digitization and interconnection, they are no longer isolated. Navigation services providers are now in a race to strengthen their cybersecurity systems. In this new scenario, Indra is the only company to offer a comprehensive portfolio of its own systems that incorporate cybersecurity as part of their design.

Indra Air Solutions offers a set of structured solutions that are large enough for each navigation services provider to optimize airspace according to their operational needs. These solutions have been implemented in the airlines Indra Air Automation, Air Communication, Air Navigation, Air Surveillance, Air Information and Air Drones.
