The FAA’s Luci Holemans is the Day 1 opening keynote speaker for the Connected Aviation Intelligence event.

The opening keynote speakers for all three days of the upcoming 2022 Connected Aviation Intelligence Summit—jointly presented by Avionics International and sister publication Via Satellite—occurring June 1–3, 2022, at the Hyatt Regency Reston, in Reston, Virginia.

Here are the three keynote speakers that have been confirmed for all three days of the live event this year listed below:

  • Day 1 — Luci Holemans, ATO Cybersecurity Group Manager, Federal Aviation Administration
  • Day 2 — Becky Selzer, Chief of Staff to the Chief Digital Officer, United Airlines
  • Day 3 — Colton Snow, Vice President Product & eCommerce, Sun Country Airlines

The FAA provided a brief overview of what Holemans will focus on in her upcoming speech:

“Technology has contributed greatly to the safety and efficiency of the National Airspace System (NAS). It has also resulted in highly integrated and increasingly interdependent connection of computers and networks supporting the aviation community. Recent events, including Russia – Ukraine, Log4j, JetBrains and SolarWinds have proven threat actor capabilities to develop and use more sophisticated and malicious cyber-attacks against our mission critical systems and services.  As the FAA migrates to adopt a Zero Trust strategy, it is ever more important that the we build and maintain relationships within industry and the Government to share intelligence for mutual defense and protection of the Aviation Ecosystem.”

Connected Aviation Intelligence was first launched as an in-flight connectivity (IFC) conference and exhibition in 2014 under its previous name, the Global Connected Aircraft Summit. After postponing the event for two years due to COVID-19 related travel restrictions, the event has been re-launched as a live, in-person, three-day event, with networking opportunities, panels, presentations, and keynotes from the likes of SpaceX, United Airlines, American Airlines, Airbus, International Airlines Group (IAG), SmartSky Networks, Gogo Business Aviation, GE Aviation, Verizon Robotics, and more!
