Cybersecurity - a strategic priority

Airbus continues to strengthen its cybersecurity activities. To keep up with our quest for excellence and innovation, we created the Airbus Cybersecurity School to train our future talents in the early stages of their academic journey. We are offering the opportunity to follow a comprehensive and immersive cybersecurity work-study apprenticeship programme, which means alternating between being a student of the Airbus Cybersecurity School and being part of our operational teams (Digital & IM, Corporate Security, etc.).
