SD Cyber Threat Report

Cyber Threat Report

Cybersecurity continues to be a concern in business aviation, but we are at the forefront of keeping your data safe, blocking over 200 critical cyber threats this year alone. We have invested more into network infrastructure than any other provider. Our investment means your connectivity services are richer, faster, and more reliable. We offer in-flight monitoring of your data traffic against a host of potential threats, block them before they ever reach your airplane, and help you identify the root cause. We also provide a module in SD Pro for a real-time view of your data! Beyond that, when you use the SD Private Network, your data traffic never touches the public internet. It is completely protected end-to-end.

In the first quarter of 2019, we have already blocked thousands of threats targeted to aircraft. Unfortunately, being in a business aircraft doesn’t exempt you from a cyber threat. One of the most common myths in the industry is that once the aircraft’s Wi-Fi signal is out of the range of those on the ramp, it is safe from an attack. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Regardless of whether you are on the ground or in the air, if you can see the internet, then the internet – and the hackers – are most definitely able to see you.

Below are the statistics from the SD Threat Monitoring service year to date.
