Domingo Urena Raso, executive vice president for military aircraft at Airbus Defense and Space, has indicated how industry has started to come together and collectively look at new ways to defend intellectual property against cyber threats, Defense News reported Monday.
“It's a common enemy today when you talk about the cyber attacks,“ Raso told audiences at a NATO forum hosted by Croatia last month.
“None of those companies are willing not to cooperate to avoid these kind of things because they attack to the pillars, to the basements of those companies.“
Defense News' Aaron Mehta quotes GovCon executives and government officials who attended the November event as saying that the private sector is now more than ever equipped to deal with security breaches.
Raso suggested that a synergistic collaboration on cybersecurity between industry and governments could be one approach to tackling the evolving threat landscape.
“Industry in many cases will continue to evolve this [cybersecurity] technology because we need, and the market is requesting, this kind of capability,“ he said.
“We can do together, or we can do separately, but we are going to do anyhow because we need business and to export this knowledge because for us that is a market.“
