SESAR Joint Undertaking (SJU)
The SJU required expert advice, guidance and recommendations on how Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR) should respond to emerging cyber-security concerns and how to strengthen their approach to cyber-security within the SJU work programme with a particular focus on their Research and Innovation activities.
Role of Helios
Helios lead a consortium with Thales AirSystems and Thales Communications and Security.
The role for the team was to produce a major study illustrating the challenges with System Wide Information Management (SWIM), including an introduction to the current problem in the industry and to examine how cyber-risk is changing in air traffic management (ATM).
Helios produced a full report and a publicly available 23-page summary, describing the conclusions drawn at the European-level in terms of an overarching framework for a new approach to cyber-security. The report delivered a threat and vulnerability assessment (including a set of scenarios), a target framework (both for SESAR and for Europe as a whole), a cyber-security maturity assessment (of SESAR 1) and a strategy and roadmap for embedding cyber-security within SESAR 2020.
