Our society depends on cyber security; the issue is at the very heart of our daily lives. How will we react when threats lead to interference with aircraft, airports or ATC?  How can we be prepared to thwart such an eventuality?

The Center and AirInsight have organized a conference bringing together leaders from the global aerospace industry, government and the intelligence community. This 1½ day conference will on what can be done to eliminate cyber-threats to commercial air transportation.

We have drawn key figures from government, the intelligence community, and industry to focus on these issues. Our currently scheduled speakers include:

  • Congressman Joe Wilson* (SC-2), Chairman of the Emerging Threats Subcommittee
  • Congressman Trent Franks (AZ-8)
  • Pascal Andrei, Chief Product Security Officer at Airbus
  • John Craig, Chief Engineer, Cabin & Network Systems Boeing
  • Deneen DeFiore, IT Risk and Security Leader at GE Aircraft Engines
  • Larry Volz, Chief Information Officer at Pratt & Whitney
  • Nancy Leveson, Professor of Aeronautics and Astronautics at MIT
  • John Bay, Executive Director at the Cyber Research Institute
  • USAF Major General (ret.) Bob Newman
  • Tom Finan*, Senior Cybersecurity Strategist, Department of Homeland Security
  • Pete O’Brien, Senior Fellow, London Center
  • Susan Smith*, Litigator, Segal McCambridge
  • Christopher Cwalina, Co-Chair, Privacy and Data Security, Holland & Knight
  • Marc Schein, Risk Advisor, Chernoff Diamond
  • Faye Francey, Executive Director, A-ISAC
  • Idita Israeli-Sabag, Information Security Manager, El Al
  • Eike Blomsma, Pilot, Lufthansa
  • Hank Putek, Pilot, Airlines

* invited

The London Center and AirInsight will lead the discussion to identify and implement countermeasures and risk mitigation strategies that industry and government can jointly adopt.
We believe there is a need to develop a comprehensive security strategy that will fully address the cyber domain. An integrated strategy through which governments and industry can jointly address threats and prevent a potential problem from becoming a crisis is needed.

Join us on Capitol Hill on October 27-28, 2015 for this “closed-door” conference with senior intelligence, national security and congressional members as well as senior industry leaders.  Seating is limited to 65 participants, on a first come, first served basis.
