The international standards D-326A (U.S.) and ED-202A (Europe) titled "Airworthiness Security Process Specification" are the cornerstones of the "DO-326/ED-202 Set" and they are the only Acceptable Means of Compliance (AMC) by FAA & EASA for aviation cyber-security airworthiness certification, as of 2019. The "DO-326/ED-202 Set" also includes companion documents DO-356A/ED-203A: "Airworthiness Security Methods and Considerations" & DO-355/ED-204: "Information Security Guidance for Continuing Airworthiness" (U.S. & Europe) and ED-201: "Aeronautical Information System Security (AISS) Framework Guidance" & ED-205: "Process Standard for Security Certification / Declaration of Air Traffic Management / Air Navigation Services (ATM/ANS) Ground Systems“ (Europe only).
This two-day seminar will introduce attendees to industry best practices for real-world aviation cyber-security risk-assessment, development & assurance. This seminar presents the information necessary to help minimize DO-326/ED-202-set compliance risks and costs, while also optimizing cyber-security levels for the development, deployment & in-service phases. The instructor will guide attendees through topics such as aircraft security aspects of safety, systems-approach to security, security planning, the airworthiness security process, and security effectiveness assurance. The entire ecosystem of aviation avionics software development will be revisited to include the DO-326/ED-202-Set as a new, integral member of the "classic" safety-oriented development process including the SAE standards ARP-4761 for Safety & ARP-4754A for Systems Development, and software & hardware development standards DO-178C & DO-254, respectively.
By attending this seminar, you will be able to:
It is recommended that attendees have at least a college degree in a technical area along with a basic understanding of software or IT. To gain full benefit, it is recommended that attendees have at least some basic knowledge of safety-related airworthiness certification of avionics.
You must complete all course contact hours and successfully pass the learning assessment to obtain CEUs.
Since 1981, Mr. Aharon David has worked in engineering of software and systems avionics, including junior-to-senior technical management positions. Among other duties, Mr. David served as the commander of the Israeli Air Force's Avionics & Control Software-development Center (ACSC) and head of System-Engineering & Interoperability of the Israeli Missile Defense Organization (IMDO) – and along the way developed, taught & commanded technical courses in the US and Israel, and was a speaker at international technical conferences . In recent years, Mr. David has been a senior advisor to the Civil Air Authority of Israel (CAAI), specifically on software certification and recently – aviation Cyber-Security. Mr. David is currently a member of both RTCA's SC-216 & EUROCAE's WG-72 "Aeronautical Systems Security“, and is the Chief WHO (White Hat Officer) of AFuzion-InfoSec, providing Aviation Cyber-Security Certification training & consulting services worldwide. Mr. David holds a BSc in Aerospace Engineering from the Technion –Israel's Institute of Technology, and an MBA from the Tel-Aviv University.
