Brussels, Belgium: Today, EUROCONTROL signed a major contract with Thales Belgium SA for setting up and providing managed security services.
The World Economic Forum’s Global Risks Report for 2018 places cyberattacks second in a list of dangerous events most likely to happen this year.
EUROCONTROL is acutely aware of the latent cyber security risk and has been working on counter measures for a long time.
The EC Network Manager Implementing Rule contains security requirements and, as a provider of essential services, we are obliged to make sure that our information security protective measures are in place and reliable.
We wanted a comprehensive end-to-end managed service, comprising security information and event management capabilities as well as a security operations centre.
So, we elected to build these into one programme, specifically designed to comply with our Network Manager Operations Centre’s requirements - but also capable of being extended to cover all of EUROCONTROL’s IT security needs in the future.
