The same way technology opens the doors for speed, efficiency, and convenience, it offers the unintended opportunity for malicious cyberattacks, with threat agents becoming bolder. Supply chains, now being targeted as a pathway to the vital core of organizations around the world, have become a vital part of the industry’s cybersecurity strategy, says Kirsten Koepsel, author of SAE International’s latest book, The Aerospace Supply Chain and Cyber Security – Challenges Ahead, now available.
GE Aviation Digital Solutions is scaling its analytics and operations solutions Microsoft Azure cloud computing to help accelerate digital transformation in aviation and enhance data protection, regulatory compliance, and efficiency.

Blatant security hacks on connected/autonomous vehicles aren’t the “big threat.” A security expert believes the top hacking targets will be hard-to-detect, and the potential source of that information: in-vehicle microphones.
Automated software tools are eliminating weeks, if not months, from the Risk Management Framework (RMF) accreditation process by virtually eliminating the time of the initial hardening while also providing the required documentation. By doing so, technology integrators can significantly reduce the time to build, test, and deploy new technologies in Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG)-compliant environments.
