Bergerode Consulting becomes a CAA ASSURE Cyber Supplier
Bergerode Consulting has become a Cyber Supplier for the Civil Aviation Authority’s ASSURE scheme. The ASSURE Scheme forms part of CAP1753 the CAA's Cyber security oversight process for aviation. This aims to enable aviation to manage its cyber security risks without compromising aviation safety, security, or resilience. UK airports, air carriers and air navigation service providers are currently in scope. Bergerode Consulting has become one of the first Cyber Suppliers accredited via the IASME Consortium Ltd for the ASSURE scheme.
Kevin Crichton, Bergerode's CEO, said: "We're very proud and excited to become a Cyber Supplier for the ASSURE scheme and look forward to working with clients on this. Cyber security within the aviation sector is crucial, not only for airports and carriers, but also crucially with their service providers within the aviation supply chain. The increasing interconnectedness of systems means that cyber security threats such as ransomware impact not just the company affected, but can affect its suppliers and its customers, and will have impacts such as delayed or cancelled flights with the obvious disruption that this will cause to passengers. The aviation sector is a crucial part of the UK’s economy, moving not only passengers and freight, so it’s crucial that companies in the civilian aviation sector takes proactive steps to remain cyber resilient, not only for their own sake, but also for the continued security of the aviation sector, but ultimately the UK’s supply chain.”
