RADICL ‘DIB Cybersecurity Maturity Report | 2024’ Uncovers Alarming Gaps Within U.S. Defense Industrial Base SMBsSixty Percent of SMBs Say They Struggle With Cyberthreat Detection and Response, Have Had Four-Plus Compromised Users in the Past Year and Only 11% are CMMC Level 2-Ready

RADICL, a cybersecurity innovator on a mission to better secure SMBs serving national defense and critical infrastructure, has released the findings from its inaugural “DIB Cybersecurity Maturity Report | 2024.”  

To better understand how SMBs in the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) protect themselves, RADICL surveyed 423 IT practitioners at companies with 101 to 250 employees. Those surveyed also identified that a significant portion of their company’s revenue comes from defense contracts with government agencies. The report aimed to assess the current state of cybersecurity within these crucial SMBs, uncover their most significant security challenges, understand their experiences working with outsourced service providers, and identify where they currently stand on their CMMC compliance journey.  

"Our report illuminates a significant gap in the cybersecurity maturity and posture of SMBs serving the DIB,” said Chris Petersen, co-founder and CEO of RADICL. “While it is encouraging that most prioritize improvements, there are critical and concerning lags that expose these innovative companies.  

“This report should be a wake-up call for the Department of Defense, U.S. policymakers, and SMB CEOs. There are concerning gaps in the ability of SMBs to deter, detect and respond to cyberthreats. CMMC/NIST 800-171 compliance, which mandates fundamental IT security controls, is also behind pace,” continued Petersen. “In contrast, nation-state cyberthreats are not behind pace and will continue to compromise DIB SMBs, steal their data, and disrupt their operations.” 

Key findings include:  

  • 61% report low to medium effectiveness in threat investigation, and 54% report low to medium effectiveness in threat hunting. 
  • 59% would take a week or more to detect a threat in their environment.  
  • 46% say cybersecurity-related incidents have cost their company $100,001 or more. Of those, 12% report that the cost was more than $500,001. 
  • 60% had four or more user/email accounts compromised in the past year.  
  • 59% had four or more of their endpoints compromised in the past year.  
  • The biggest security challenge is implementing and maintaining compliance with regulations, including CMMC.  
  • 81% have started the CMMC compliance process; however, only 13% are compliant with Level 1, and 11% are compliant with Level 2. 
  • The biggest challenge with outsourced providers is inadequate response time to security issues and incidents
  • Their biggest security priority in 2024 is strengthening access control policies and enforcement around sensitive data.

AeroGuard Flight Training Center Selected by Air India to Train Pilots for the Airline’s Fly High Cadet Pilot Program

AeroGuard Flight Training Center, a renowned global leader in professional ab initio flight training, is proud to announce its selection by Air India to train the Indian flag carrier’s student pilots within its Fly High Cadet Pilot Program. This agreement demonstrates a significant milestone for AeroGuard and Air India as the two organizations share a commitment to high-quality flight training and supporting the growing airline industry in India. 

Within this new partnership, AeroGuard will train the next generation of pilots for Air India through a custom-developed course where students will obtain FAA licenses ready for DGCA conversion. Through AeroGuard’s high-quality curriculum, experienced instructors, expansive training facilities and capacity, AeroGuard will play a pivotal role in supporting the world-class airline’s aggressive growth plans. Following Air India recruitment and screening, pilot cadets will complete Ground School in India before training at AeroGuard’s flagship Phoenix, Arizona, campus that offers an ideal flight training environment with 350+ VFR days a year, extensive local airspace, and consistent student support. 

To support this high demand for its training, AeroGuard has been expanding its capacity and plans to train up to 2,000 student pilots across its three U.S. campuses. As part of this growth, AeroGuard recently placed a 90 aircraft order with Piper Aircraft, significantly increasing their current fleet of 100 planes, alongside plans to add a further 25 planes throughout 2024. Additionally, AeroGuard maintains a current population of 200+ instructors, with an additional 600+ U.S. students training to be instructors, as part of their path to 1,500 Hours for airline employment in the U.S.

AeroGuard Flight Training Center’s CEO Joel Davidson stated, “AeroGuard is honored to be selected by Air India as their preferred flight training provider for their Cadet Pilot Program. This partnership not only validates our commitment to delivering exceptional training for leading airlines worldwide, but also demonstrates our dedication to supporting the growth of the aviation industry in India. AeroGuard is excited to contribute to the success of Air India’s future pilots and establish long and successful careers for hundreds of student pilots.” 

As a leading airline in the rapidly expanding travel industry in India, this is a significant leap towards ensuring a consistent skilled pool of next-generation cadets and bridging the First Officer gap. By partnering with institutions like AeroGuard, Air India seeks to maintain stringent quality standards for cadet training while proactively securing future talent pipelines. Embracing its role as a pivotal player in India's thriving travel industry, Air India has embarked on a transformative journey. As the airline gears up for expansion, the demand for skilled pilots is poised to surge. AeroGuard's distinguished curriculum has been meticulously crafted to equip cadet pilots with the requisite skills, knowledge, and confidence to fulfill Air India's ambitious plans.
