Cyber Security Alert: SolarWinds Orion

The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) and Department for Transport (DfT) has asked us to make sure the aviation industry is aware of the recent SolarWinds Orion network cyber security breach.

The NCSC has published information and guidance on their website.

The NCSC advises that even if an organisation does not use this system that they consider supply chains, including any third parties who provide services that use SolarWinds.

If you discover that you do have a compromised version of the Orion software, please contact the NCSC.
