The Aerospace Industries Association has released a standard aimed at maintaining cybersecurity resilience in the aerospace and defense industries.

The risk-based standard complements the Department of Defense‘s existing cybersecurity guidelines and are made to help companies regularly update cyber defenses amid evolving threats, AIA said Thursday.

“With aggressive state and non-state cyber actors targeting the United States, it is essential that our industry work collectively to protect technology and information,” said Eric Fanning, president and CEO at AIA.

He added that AIA is working to foster industry-government collaboration towards implementing measures to protect the country from cyber threats.
