ECAC delivers cyber security training for European Commission aviation security inspection experts

Videoconference, 4 and 6-7 October 2022 — The first training course for European Commission aviation security inspection experts, "Best Practices for National Auditors – Cyber Security (basic)", was organised by the ECAC Secretariat. The course gave participants the opportunity to exchange experience and best practices in inspecting and auditing the implementation of cyber security measures aimed at protecting critical aviation information and communication technology systems and data from cyber attacks that could affect the security of civil aviation.

Such valuable cooperation contributes to developing a common approach to addressing cyber threats to aviation, to the continuous professional development of aviation security experts, and to increasing aviation security in the European region.

"It was a privilege to participate in this training. The shared experiences, questions and insights made the sessions both interesting and enjoyable. At an institutional level, activities such as these are a practical way that the political objective of harmonised implementation is achieved. Hopefully, there will be future occasions when this positive experience can be shared again", said Eleanor Travers, Aviation Security Manager at the Irish Aviation Authority, who participated in the course as an instructor.
