Leidos, Global Airports

Airport Cyber Security, IT Services & Consultancy

Securing networks from invasive threats is one of the fastest-growing challenges facing us today and because airports are regarded as critical national assets, airport cyber security protection is fundamentally important.

More than ever before, airport operators rely on information technology to deliver operational efficiencies and passenger processing.

On-line check-in, e-ticketing, self-service bag drop and automated border controls are just some of the technologies that society have come to accept as normal practice.

Losing access to any of these services can have a catastrophic impact on airport operations and that’s before we even consider the reliance that our ATC and airline management systems have on technology networks.

Network attackers are tenacious and insidious, continually devising unique ways to gain access to secure information. Maintaining impermeable protection is why Lockheed Martin developed an Intelligence-Driven Defence security intelligence framework to detect, mitigate and effectively adapt to advanced cyber threats.

Leidos unique intelligence-focused approach to airport cyber security relies on cutting edge technology, vigilant people and innovative processes to comprehensively defend networks from advanced threats.

Protecting our networks and the networks of our customers is our top priority.

We stay one-step ahead of our adversaries by quickly recognizing and mitigating problems before they arise in order to protect our corporation and overall, our national security.
