Airbus Launches New Cyber Division

1 July Stand-Up For Newly Centralised Digital Defence Operation

Airbus is to take its disparate cybersecurity and cyberdefence products and services, and place them in a single division within the broader corporate structure. The new division – apparently named Airbus CyberSecurity – will be formally stood up on 1 July. The company has been using the name on its website and in some of its cybersecurity communications since last year.

The new organisation, which will focus on cybersecurity and safety services, especially in the industrial sector, will bring together more than 1,000 experts based in France, Germany, the UK and Spain […] It will provide a unique global service offering to protect the Group and meet the needs of national authorities and commercial customers including critical infrastructures,” the company states.

Despite this announcement, the company says it still intends to focus extensive investment in its Stormshield subsidiary. The company, which was formed in 2012 when Airbus bought French cybersecurity firms Netasq and Arkoon, is to receive “a double-digit million euros investment plan […] mostly focused on R&D activities [which] will increase the capabilities and performance of its product lines and accelerate the development of its international activities.”

Meanwhile, Airbus has also acquired DSI, a German firm providing cryptography solutions and communication systems to the space, air, land and maritime sectors.

Airbus will present its new cyber portfolio at a trade show for the first time this month when it takes part in the International Cybersecurity Forum in Lille, 7-9 June.
