Cybersecurity in the Skies: SOCRadar Aviation Industry Threat Landscape Report

The digital age has brought many wonders, including making air travel easier and more efficient than ever before. But, just like on the ground, the skies are not free from dangers – cyber dangers, to be precise. The “SOCRadar Industry Threat Landscape Report – Aviation” peels back the curtain on the cyber threats that are lurking behind the scenes of your favorite airlines and airports.

Imagine, for a moment, the chaos caused by the SITA data breach, where information from millions of travelers was exposed. Or the shock of EasyJet customers finding out that their personal and payment information had been stolen. These are not scenes from a spy movie but real incidents that have affected real people.

One of the most scary tales comes from the ransomware attack on VT San Antonio Aerospace. Hackers managed to lock up their files and steal 1 terabyte of sensitive data. It is like someone sneaking into a high-security building, taking what they want, and leaving a note on the door saying they have been there.

The report does not just share stories of past attacks; it also shines a light on the shadowy parts of the internet where hackers hang out. It is fascinating (and a bit scary) to see how SOCRadar tracks these threats, turning the tables on cybercriminals by using their own online spaces against them.

What is really interesting is how the report shows the changing seasons of cyber threats. Just like we have flu season, there are times when cyber attacks spike. For the aviation industry, the end of the year seems to be a hot period for cyber troublemakers.
