05/09 – 09/09
Oxford, United Kingdom: Dionach are pleased to announce we are now one of a select number of organisations accredited with the Civil Aviation Authority and CREST, to further extend our cyber security services to the Aviation sector. Originally launched in January 2020, the CAA ASSURE accreditation provides a third-party cybersecurity audit model for the Aerospace industry, enabling organisations to manage their cyber security risks without compromising aviation safety, security or resilience whilst ensuring compliance with applicable regulations.
Dionach’s ASSURE team have a solid history of experience working with civil aviation and other transport sectors, delivering safe audits of critical Operational Technology (OT) and Process Control Networks (PCNs). It is hoped the new partnership with CAA ASSURE will further strengthen our relationship with the Aerospace sector and enhance the level of services we provide to Aviation organisations.
“We are delighted to be accredited to the CAA ASSURE Scheme. During our twenty years’ experience in cybersecurity, we have worked with civil aviation and several critical national infrastructure organisations, delivering bespoke security audits and assessments of critical Operational Technology (OT) and Process Control Networks (PCNs). Being part of the CAA ASSURE Scheme enables us to support the Aerospace sector and enhance the level of cyber services we provide to Aviation organisations.” says Ewan Mckenzie, CEO at Dionach.
The benefits of this new partnership include:
- Dionach has been accredited through the CAA ASSURE process and will ensure they meet the standards set out by CAA, as well as any additional requirements companies might have.
- Aerospace organisations can gain assurance of their self-assessments and utilise the audit report to demonstrate cyber security posture.
- Aerospace organisations can more easily identify areas to remediate and Dionach can help with recommendations.
