TrustedSec Comments on Potential Hacking of Local Airport Systems

Cleveland Hopkins International Airport

On Sunday, April 21, 2019, travelers at Cleveland’s Hopkins International Airport noticed that the screens typically displaying flight information were not functioning correctly. The Mayor’s office then commented that the airport is experiencing “isolated technical issues,” which did not affect flights to or from the airport.

TrustedSec consultants including GRC practice lead Alex Hamerstone and Remediation practice lead Paul Sems were asked for comments as the situation unfolded.
