Foregenix Focuses on Airline Data Security

Foregenix has launched a specialist airline security team to assist airlines, airports and service providers and aviation businesses to ensure their data is secure, including customer and payment data.

The UK-based information security business, which has offices in South Africa and Latin America, said the launch follows years of global experience working within the travel sector, data forensics and information security experts.

The new division is already working with global travel organisations, such as the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and other key organisations within the travel sector. The team works to protect the world’s largest airports, airlines, associations, data processing centres, global distribution system suppliers and travel agents.

Foregenix said that the team will provide comprehensive professional security guidance and Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance support for the common use environment and the various organisations operating within the airline industry’s Billing and Settlement Plan (BSP), as well as advice and guidance for the complex challenges the industry faces daily.

“As the association that represents 250 of the world’s airlines, we keenly support the development of more intelligent and robust data security within our sector,” said IATA director Pascal Buchner.

“The travel-sector-specific experience that Foregenix has developed and brings to the airline industry will certainly benefit the airlines and our partners in improving their payment security. “

Benjamin Hosack, director at Foregenix, added: “We have been working in the travel sector for years with organisations such as IATA and many other large multinationals.

“The payment card data security challenges in the sector are complex and require a very good understanding of the travel industry ecosystem in order to be able to provide guidance.“
