Cyber Security Industry Working Group (CSIWG)

This group is a multi-stakeholder group formed of UK aviation industry, government, CAA Aerospace Cyber Security, other relevant CAA teams and invited ASSURE Cyber Suppliers. The meetings of the Group will feed into National Aviation Security Committee governance.

The CSIWG will meet regularly to:

  • collate and discuss cyber security risks which impact the aviation sector
  • improve information sharing and expertise between parties
  • enable discussion on progress against required actions, sharing good practice and relevant interests
  • provide visibility of CAA cyber security direction and regulatory pipeline
  • provide an opportunity to discuss proposals to gather insights and possible impacts such as changes to guidance
  • enable parties to raise cyber security concerns and issues
  • create sub-groups which draw on expertise of the stakeholders to reduce identified risks or complete projects that improve the cyber security of the sector
  • to progress work against the Data Dependencies Study recommendations relevant to the group, including standardisation for third party assurance.

The CSIWG will identify and agree on projects which require sub-groups and define their high-level deliverables.
