The platform will reduce cybersecurity risks in the aviation industry

Deloitte Canada has signed an agreement with Cyviation to create a new aircraft cybersecurity solution.

Under the partnership, Deloitte will provide its cybersecurity consulting and professional services, while Cyviation will provide its aircraft cybersecurity tools, including fleet assessment and real-time airborne detection. 

According to the partners, the solution will initially comprise three platforms to reduce cybersecurity risk exposure, enhance awareness and support commercial airlines in developing cyber resilience and preparing for upcoming cyber regulation compliance. 

The offerings include cyber training and education, fleet cyber risk assessment and cyber incident management. 

"At Cyviation, the trust bestowed by Deloitte fuels our joint market endeavors, amplifying our mutual impact in our go-to-market effort,” said Avi Tenenbaum, Cyviation's CEO. “Our combined offering adds value to the market and is a vital compass for operators and airlines navigating complex cybersecurity challenges and current and upcoming regulations, especially around the aircraft and fleet. 

“Together, we're crafting tailored cybersecurity solutions for diverse aviation stakeholders, enabling them to confidently provide safety and security to an industry that faces significant threats.” 

The partnerships come as cyberattacks continue to proliferate, and cybersecurity regulations are set to become more stringent. A Deloitte poll recently found that 64.8% of public company executives say their organizations will strengthen their cybersecurity programs.

“Cyber is more than just technology-focused — it is foundational to an organization’s growth strategy,” said Grégory Lemaire, Deloitte Canada’s partner of cyber risk. “Our joint offerings hold immense value for a tailored solution for multiple aviation industry players. Together, we're customizing solutions to cater to a broad spectrum of the aviation industry and meeting the immense demand.”

“As cyber threats continue to increase, our steadfast mission persists in empowering the aviation sector with robust defenses and proactive strategies,” said Arik Arad, Cyviation’s chairman. “There have been over 50 recent reports of cyberattacks that have altered planes’ in-flight GPS. Amidst unprecedented global risks and escalating cyber threats, equipping the aviation industry with unparalleled safeguards has never been more urgent and we continue to remain unwavering in our vision.”
