Brussels, Belgium – Today EUROCONTROL and EE-ISAC, the European Energy Information Sharing and Analysis Centre, concluded a Cooperation Agreement to share cyber-threat intelligence, actionable cyber information such as knowledge about attackers’ modus operandi, and to prioritise effective mitigation and detection means to counter cyber threats.
This new cross-sectoral cooperation recognises the commonalities of energy and aviation as interlinked sectors, containing critical infrastructures that face similar challenges in the area of cyber-attacks, and shared vulnerabilities through infrastructure systems.
This new Cooperation Agreement forms part of EUROCONTROL’s efforts, through its EATM-CERT (European Air Traffic Management Computer Emergency Response Team) service, to promote actively the establishment of a pan-European cyber resilience framework across aviation, as well as with other transport modes and critical infrastructures.
EUROCONTROL provides cyber services to the aviation community, working with stakeholders to coordinate pan-European responses to air traffic management (ATM) cybersecurity alerts and incidents. These include carrying out security assessments; collecting, generating and distributing cyber intelligence; and helping stakeholders develop proactive and reactive capabilities against cyber threats and attacks.
