Airbus Cyber Innovation 

A cutting-edge approach to cybersecurity research

Airbus Cyber Innovation pushes the boundaries of cyber innovation by advancing cutting-edge cybersecurity research in a variety of areas. In doing so, it is actively tackling today’s digital threats – and preparing for the threats of tomorrow – to ensure business continuity and to help secure people, property and information.

Mission

Airbus Cyber Innovation monitors and identifies cyber trends through cybersecurity research initiatives and projects around the world. Its activity takes place across five sites: Newport in Wales, Paris and Toulouse in France, and Hamburg and Munich in Germany. Teams at these locations foster strong relationships with Airbus business units, which in turn, drive the research objectives.


Its mission is two-fold:

  • To transform industry-leading cybersecurity capabilities into world-class expertise,
  • To develop the technology required to tackle emerging cybersecurity issues.

 

Its key research priorities include the following:

  • Developing the next generation of cyber defence, detection and response,
  • Protecting industrial control and safety-critical systems,
  • Understanding the human factors of cybersecurity and cloud security mechanisms.
