GAO calls on FAA to step up cyber security
from Aviation Today
The FAA is lacking in measures to prevent cyber-based threats to the increasingly automated Air Traffic Control system, according to a report by the Government Accountability Office. The "Information Security: FAA Needs to Address Weaknesses in Air Traffic Control Systems" report, published recently, finds that while the FAA has taken measures to protect the systems from cyber attacks, significant vulnerabilities remain. These vulnerabilities threaten the agency's ability to ensure secure, orderly and efficient operation of the National Airspace System.
