“Cybersecurity in aviation is no longer an option but a necessity,” Aviel Tenenbaum, CEO, Cyviation, told Corporate Jet Investor. He divides business aviation cybersecurity risks into two areas: financial and reputational and threats to life.
In our highly interconnected world, hackers can impact an aircraft in various non-lethal but highly damaging ways.

The financial impacts could include severe impacts on stock prices to altering passengers’ booking decisions.
