  • Abstract:
    In September, testimony before the Committee on Science, House of Representatives, focused on the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) computer security program. In brief, we reported that FAA's agency-wide computer security program has serious, pervasive problems in the following key areas: personnel security, facility physical security, operational systems security, information systems security management, service continuity, and intrusion detection. Until FAA addresses the pervasive weaknesses in its computer security program, its critical information systems will remain at increased risk of intrusion and attack, and its aviation operations will remain at risk. These critical weaknesses need to be addressed. To assist you in bringing this about, we are making recommendations to you based on the suggestions we made in our September 2000 testimony, which is reprinted within this report.
