Aerospace Group Launches Cyber Security Info Center

The Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) is teaming with the Internet Security Alliance (ISA) to provide information and tools to help identify threats to a company's information technology infrastructure.

The package is free to AIA members and available for a fee to non-members.

"Cyber security is one of the most pressing issues facing industry today," said AIA President and CEO Marion Blakey. "Our relationship with ISA is particularly valuable for suppliers, providing critical resources to defend against increasingly malicious cyber activity."

Costs for cyber security are increasing dramatically as the threat landscape grows in volume and complexity. By offering the service, AIA hopes to provide subscribers information regarding potentially damaging threats to IT networks.

Subscribers will have a number of information resources on cyber security available:

  • Access to ISA's member content, including webinars and best practice publications.
  • Daily or periodic e-bulletins on a range of subjects, including a Daily Brief with current threats and vulnerabilities to very specific interest areas.
  • Access to US-CERT (United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team) portal, which includes a number of tools that allow IT personnel to collaborate and share security information efficiently.

    ISA is a nonprofit forum for data sharing and thought leadership on information security issues, which aims to identify and standardize best practices in Internet security and network survivability, while creating a collaborative environment to develop and implement information security solutions. Non-members can sign up at www.aia-aerospace.org through the AIA store for a $500 fee per company. Free access to the service is available through the members-only gateway.
