ENAIRE wins award for its Cybersecurity Culture Training Programme
ENAIRE, the national air navigation service provider, has won the Cybersecurity Culture Training Programme Award, presented by the company Entelgy Digital.
At an event held yesterday in Madrid, featuring experts in Cybersecurity from various institutions and companies, the organisation recognised ENAIRE as "leader in cybersecurity awareness and collaborative success between Information and Communication Technologies and people".
ENAIRE wants to enhance the protection of its users and technological assets, and to do so, it is conducting a cybersecurity awareness campaign in order to make users more alert and, although complete security does not exist, to protect them more. This awareness campaign, which is a continuation of the first season in 2020, is part of the 2020-2025 Strategic Cybersecurity Plan (PROTEGE), approved and endorsed by the company's General Management.
This campaign is based on an awareness model that focuses on people's behaviour and on how new security habits are actually acquired when using technology, services and information.
The training was conducted on the platform of Entelgy Digital, the company that provides this service, and consisted of weekly exercises that were emailed to the students involving that week's episode.
In total, there were 3 episodes per season (meaning six exercises are already complete), which were scheduled with the different activities associated with each. From February to June of this year, and through September, the platform was made available to those who were unable to finish. During the summer, "review" emails were also sent out with the key takeaways from the episodes.
The Cybersecurity Office, the Systems Directorate and ENAIRE Campus all worked to provide this training, which is why the award also recognises the collaboration between the three units, although the main reason was the dedication of the professionals who received this training.
The total percentage of employees who watched at least part of an episode was 61.54%. In addition, the completion percentage (how many people log in to watch an episode versus those who complete it) was 55%, considered "very good" by the organisers.
96.96% of the respondents to the training quality survey regarded the experience as very positive; 98.48% now consider themselves as more aware of online dangers, and 94.94% would like to continue with new episodes.
ENAIRE is the air navigation service provider in Spain.
As a company of the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and the Urban Agenda, it provides en route control services for all flights and overflights from five control centres in Madrid, Barcelona, Seville, Gran Canaria and Palma, as well as approach services to every airport in the country.
In addition, 45 control towers receive ENAIRE's communication, navigation and surveillance services, and 21 airports, including the country's busiest, rely on its aerodrome control services.
ENAIRE is Europe's fourth largest air traffic manager. Since 1 January 2022, it has chaired the A6 Alliance, a coalition of air navigation providers responsible for over 80% of European air traffic, and which is seeking to modernise the air traffic management system. It is also a member of other international alliances promoting the Single European sky, such as SESAR Joint Undertaking, SESAR Deployment Manager, iTEC, CANSO and ICAO.
ENAIRE, as the agency appointed by the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda to implement the U-space system in Spain, will be the provider of the Common Information Services (CIS), which are essential for administering U-space services to drones and Urban Air Mobility, in interaction with local air traffic control services, so that all types of aircraft can fly safely in the same airspace.
ENAIRE has received the highest score in Europe on the aviation safety key performance indicator. It has also been awarded the EFQM 500 Seal for its safe, efficient, innovative and sustainable management of air navigation services.
