AIA published its first standard practice for cyber security in February titled NAS 9924, “CYBER SECURITY BASELINE.” This standard provides guidance for aerospace and defense suppliers of all capability levels and a baseline of actions to follow to better protect Information system infrastructures from cyber threats. Included within the standard is a self-assessment tool that suppliers can utilize to help determine the extent to which their cyber strengths and weaknesses exist.
The benefits of this standard extend to the entire industry by educating and increasing the security awareness of all companies. This standard practice was developed by AIA’s Cyber Security Working Group, which reports to the AIA Electronic Enterprise Integration Committee, and can be found at the following link: NAS 9924.
AIA will be offering further education opportunities on this standard through a series of cyber security webinars for supply chain members, beginning April 25.
AIA has been publishing authoritative industry trade standards for the global aerospace market since 1941. Additional information regarding AIA’s standards program is available at: http://www.aia-nas.org.
