Airbus Offers Cybersecurity Service for European PMR Operators
Tuesday, December 12, 2017 | Comments

In light of the new European directive on network and information security (NIS) becoming national law, Airbus in Germany is offering a new cybersecurity service for professional mobile radio (PMR) network operators.

In many industrial sectors, radio communications operators in Germany, Switzerland and Austria need to take action soon because they are compelled to protect both their systems and affected consumers. Airbus in Germany will offer a complete and tailored service called Tactilon Cyber Security to help detect the weak spots of PMR systems and maintain and update them regularly consistent with the new NIS directive. This includes managing situations in case of a threat, upgrade, security monitoring, access control, backups and recovery.

According to the European Union’s NIS directive, adopted in mid-2016, national governments will have to implement the legislation in 2018. Furthermore, they have to identify IT and PMR operators in certain sectors considered to be “essential services” for the European economy. Among these are businesses in areas such as energy, banking, transport, water, financial markets, healthcare and digital infrastructure.

The European Union’s aim is to improve the member states’ cooperation and protection against attacks. As a result of the European legislation, a public-private partnership was created in Germany to protect critical national infrastructure.
