DHS Gives Cybersecurity Warning to Small Aircraft Owners

Aug. 12, 2019

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has issued a recommendation that aircraft owners restrict access to their aircraft and manufacturers review security around the CAN bus data distribution system. “There’s been a whole host of measures that the industry has voluntarily adopted, including things like airport watch programs, hardened ID checks, and security procedures at general aviation facilities at airports, that make access to the aircraft very difficult from a threat factor perspective,” said Doug Carr, NBAA vice president, regulatory and international affairs. “When we look at the totality of these measures, I think we set out a difficult pathway for anybody trying to do anything bad to an airplane.”

This week, NBAA Flight Plan host Pete Combs speaks with:

  • Doug Carr, NBAA vice president, regulatory and international affairs
  • Jens Henning, General Aviation Manufacturers Association vice president, operations
  • Ric Peri, Aircraft Electronics Association vice president, government and industry affairs
