Cybersecurity Key Legal Considerations for the Aviation and Space Sectors Federico Bergamasco, Roberto Cassar, Rada Popova & Benjamyn I. Scott As the aviation and space sectors become ever more connected to cyberspace and reliant on related technology, they become more vulnerable to potential cyberattacks. As a result, cybersecurity is a growing concern that all stakeholders in both sectors must consider. In this forward-looking book, which is the first comprehensive analysis of the relevant facets of cybersecurity in the aviation and space sectors, the authors explore the vast spectrum of relevant international and European Union (EU) law, with specific attention to associated risks, existing legal provisions and the potential development of new rules. Beginning with an overview of the different types of malicious cyber operations, the book proceeds to set the terminological landscape relevant to its core theme. It takes a top-down approach by first analysing general international and EU law related to cybersecurity, then moving to the more specific aspects of the aviation and space sectors, including telecommunications. Finally, the salient features of these analyses are combined with the practical realities in the relevant industries, giving due regard to legal and regulatory initiatives, industry standards and best practices. The broad range of issues and topics covered includes the following and more: whether the various facets of the international law on conflict apply in cyberspace and to cyberattacks; substantial policy and regulatory developments taking place at the EU level, including the activities of its relevant institutions, bodies and entities; jurisdiction and attributability issues relevant to cybersecurity in the aviation and space sectors; vulnerability of space systems, including large constellations, to malicious cyber activities and electromagnetic interference; various challenges for critical infrastructure resulting from, e.g., its interdependency, cross-border nature, public-private ownership and dual civil-military uses; safety and security in international air transportation, with special attention to the Chicago Convention and its Annexes; aviation liability and compensation in cases of cyberattacks, and insurance coverage against cyber risks; review of malicious relevant actors, malicious cyber operations, the typical life cycle of a cyberattack and industry responses. This book clearly responds to the need to elaborate adequate legal rules for ensuring that the multiple inlets for malicious cyber operations and the management of cybersecurity risks are addressed appropriately. It will be welcomed by all parties involved with aviation and space law and policy, including lawyers, governments, regulators, academics, manufacturers, operators, airports, and international governmental and non-governmental organisations.

Cyber analysis and warning capabilities are critical to thwarting computer-based (cyber) threats and attacks. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) established the United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT) to, among other things, co-ordinate the nation's efforts to prepare for, prevent, and respond to cyber threats to systems and communications networks. The authors' objectives were to (1) identify key attributes of cyber analysis and warning capabilities, (2) compare these attributes with US-CERT's current capabilities to identify whether there are gaps, and (3) identify US-CERT's challenges to developing and implementing key attributes and a successful national cyber analysis and warning capability. To address these objectives, the authors identified and analysed related documents, observed operations at numerous entities, and interviewed responsible officials and experts.

In today’s litigious business world, cyber-related matters could land you in court. As a computer security professional, you are protecting your data, but are you protecting your company? While you know industry standards and regulations, you may not be a legal expert. Fortunately, in a few hours of reading, rather than months of classroom study, Tari Schreider’s Cybersecurity Law, Standards and Regulations (2nd Edition), lets you integrate legal issues into your security program. Tari Schreider, a board-certified information security practitioner with a criminal justice administration background, has written a much-needed book that bridges the gap between cybersecurity programs and cybersecurity law. He says, “My nearly 40 years in the fields of cybersecurity, risk management, and disaster recovery have taught me some immutable truths. One of these truths is that failure to consider the law when developing a cybersecurity program results in a protective façade or false sense of security.” In a friendly style, offering real-world business examples from his own experience supported by a wealth of court cases, Schreider covers the range of practical information you will need as you explore – and prepare to apply – cybersecurity law. His practical, easy-to-understand explanations help you to: Understand your legal duty to act reasonably and responsibly to protect assets and information. Identify which cybersecurity laws have the potential to impact your cybersecurity program. Upgrade cybersecurity policies to comply with state, federal, and regulatory statutes. Communicate effectively about cybersecurity law with corporate legal department and counsel. Understand the implications of emerging legislation for your cybersecurity program. Know how to avoid losing a cybersecurity court case on procedure – and develop strategies to handle a dispute out of court. Develop an international view of cybersecurity and data privacy – and international legal frameworks. Schreider takes you beyond security standards and regulatory controls to ensure that your current or future cybersecurity program complies with all laws and legal jurisdictions. Hundreds of citations and references allow you to dig deeper as you explore specific topics relevant to your organization or your studies. This book needs to be required reading before your next discussion with your corporate legal department. This new edition responds to the rapid changes in the cybersecurity industry, threat landscape and providers. It addresses the increasing risk of zero-day attacks, growth of state-sponsored adversaries and consolidation of cybersecurity products and services in addition to the substantial updates of standards, source links and cybersecurity products.

Das Thema Cybersecurity ist so aktuell wie nie, denn im Cyberspace lassen sich nur schwer Grenzen in Bezug auf den Zugang zu Informationen, Daten und Redefreiheit setzen. Kriminelle nutzen die Lücken oft zu ihrem Vorteil aus. Die Vielzahl der IT-Systeme, ihre unterschiedlichen Nutzungsarten und ihre Innovations- und Lebenszyklen haben zu hohen Sicherheitsrisiken für Unternehmen und staatliche Einrichtungen geführt. Diese Risiken werden sich auch langfristig nicht so einfach aus der Welt schaffen lassen. Daher müssen Institutionen Strategien und Lösungen zu ihrem Selbstschutz entwickeln. Dieses Buch beschreibt Lösungsansätze und Best Practices aus den unterschiedlichsten Bereichen, die nachweislich zu einer höheren Resilienz gegenüber Cyberangriffen führen. Weltweit renommierte IT-Sicherheitsexperten berichten in 40 Beiträgen, wie sich staatliche Institutionen, unter anderem das Militär (Cyber Defence), Behörden, internationale Organisationen und Unternehmen besser gegen Cyberangriffe schützen und nachhaltige Schutzstrategien entwickeln können. Die Autoren widmen sich den Gründen und Zielen, die ihren jeweiligen Strategien zugrunde liegen, sie berichten, wie Unternehmen auf konkrete Cyberattacken reagiert haben und wie einzelne staatliche Institutionen angesichts nationaler Cyberstrategien agieren. In weiteren Kapiteln zeigen Wissenschaftler auf, was bei der Abwehr von Cyber-Attacken bereits heute möglich ist, welche Entwicklungen in Arbeit sind und wie diese in Zukunft eingesetzt werden können, um die Cyber-Sicherheit zu erhöhen. Im letzten Kapitel berichten Hersteller, Anwenderunternehmen und Dienstleister welche Best Practices sie in ihren Unternehmen eingeführt haben und wie andere Unternehmen ihrem Beispiel folgen können. Das Buch richtet sich an IT-Verantwortliche und -Sicherheitsbeauftragte in Unternehmen und anderen Organisationen, aber auch an Studierende in den verschiedenen IT-Studiengängen.

A ground shaking exposé on the failure of popular cyber risk management methods How to Measure Anything in Cybersecurity Risk exposes the shortcomings of current "risk management" practices, and offers a series of improvement techniques that help you fill the holes and ramp up security. In his bestselling book How to Measure Anything, author Douglas W. Hubbard opened the business world's eyes to the critical need for better measurement. This book expands upon that premise and draws from The Failure of Risk Management to sound the alarm in the cybersecurity realm. Some of the field's premier risk management approaches actually create more risk than they mitigate, and questionable methods have been duplicated across industries and embedded in the products accepted as gospel. This book sheds light on these blatant risks, and provides alternate techniques that can help improve your current situation. You'll also learn which approaches are too risky to save, and are actually more damaging than a total lack of any security. Dangerous risk management methods abound; there is no industry more critically in need of solutions than cybersecurity. This book provides solutions where they exist, and advises when to change tracks entirely. Discover the shortcomings of cybersecurity's "best practices" Learn which risk management approaches actually create risk Improve your current practices with practical alterations Learn which methods are beyond saving, and worse than doing nothing Insightful and enlightening, this book will inspire a closer examination of your company's own risk management practices in the context of cybersecurity. The end goal is airtight data protection, so finding cracks in the vault is a positive thing—as long as you get there before the bad guys do. How to Measure Anything in Cybersecurity Risk is your guide to more robust protection through better quantitative processes, approaches, and techniques.
