New center to fight cyber crime opens at Munich Airport

The number of attacks on the IT systems of companies and public-sector organizations in Germany has rapidly increased in recent years, parallel to the rise of digitization. Munich Airport also faces all kinds of cyber attacks on a daily basis. Now a new center of competence is being set up at the Bavarian hub. It will bring together IT experts from the airport operating company (FMG) and specialists from high-profile tech companies to test defensive strategies and look for new solutions in the fight against cyber-criminals.

 

To set up and operate the “Information Security Hub”, located in the former airmail coordination office at the airport, near the freight terminal, FMG secured the support of three renowned IT security companies. ERNW INSIGHT, HvS-Consulting and IT-CUBE SYSTEMS have been successfully developing solutions and advising clients on improved IT security for many years.

 

The new competence center at Munich Airport will provide a platform for cross-company cooperation. It will offer business, public-sector organizations and other institutions opportunities for training and continuing education while working together to put next-generation IT security technologies and processes through their paces. A professional testing and training environment is essential for success. It also offers security solution manufacturers the opportunity to try out new products and services under realistic conditions and jointly develop efficient and pragmatic approaches to fighting cyber-crime and promoting current trends (from Internet of Things and Industry 4.0 to Cloud Services). The primary target group for the services of the Information Security Hub are airports, airlines and other partners from the aviation industry, which, as critical infrastructure, must meet the new standards for the transport and traffic sector. The center is also open to other companies and organizations from all kinds of areas, however. That includes companies from the mobility, industrial and green technologies sectors, for example, as well as any companies and institutions that manage complex infrastructures and facilities.

 

The “Information Security Hub” will open on January 31, 2018 on the occasion of a two-day Aviation Information Security Congress.
