Abstract

Airports form part of the most important transport infrastructure of every nation state in the globe. The absolute number of inhabitants and data passing through airports each day and the apparent prospects to embezzle data, shake down money or set off anarchy makes them an unavoidable target for cyber attack. Cyber-security events are considerably growing year-on-year across the full spectrum of worldwide trade. Due to their visibility, interruption of the indispensable operations of airlines and airports could plausibly be the subject of a cyber-attack by cyber terrorists. Unluckily, not all airports have put into practice cyber-security systems that would defend and manage those operations and all connected aspects. It cleanly means that even though various may have security measures in place, cyber criminals, ‘hacktivists’, or cyber terrorists may possibly mull over this as a ideal opening to molest the airports in loads of diverse ways. We outline here the need, establishment, advancing progressions and research endeavors with respect to the establishment of cyber security standards and best practices with uncommon highlight on cyber security awareness.
