Case Study Swedavia

Airport systems cannot fail

Anyone can imagine the consequences if critical airport systems are compromised and disrupted. Because of this, airport security staff are used to working with risk management on all levels, and are constantly looking for ways to improve, just like they do in flight safety.  As with any other organization that strives to constantly improve, Swedavia frequently releases new system integrations and upgrades. Getting security right is always a challenge. Using securiCAD from foreseeti, Swedavia has been able to tackle many of the challenges involved in securing cyber systems and components before launch effectively.

Swedavia used securiCAD to conduct attack simulations and identify security risks in order to enable effective risk mitigation before new designs are implemented in their current IT architecture.

The result is that using securiCAD is now a requirement for any new IT project that affects critical airport systems. securiCAD is most often used as a benchmark for assessing architectural changes and their expected effect on the overall risk exposure, but it can also be utilized as an “objective expert” to facilitate communication between contractors, vendors, architects, technicians, project managers and decision makers.

You never build a bridge or an airplane without having modeled it in a CAD-environment to test its strengths and weaknesses beforehand.
