Audit Initiated of the Security and Controls over the Civil Aviation Registry Systems - Federal Aviation Administration
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is responsible for setting, overseeing, and enforcing safety standards in the aviation industry. FAA’s Flight Standards Service promotes aviation safety by managing systems for registration of civil aircraft and airman records. These registry systems contain FAA's official records of civil aircraft registration and ownership, and airman certification, ratings and authorizations. DOT OIG has initiated an audit of the security of the registry systems' information.
Audit objectives are to determine whether: (1) personally identifiable information is secure from unauthorized use or access; (2) information in the registry systems is sufficient for managing aircraft registrations and airmen's records; and (3) registry contingency planning ensures FAA's continued ability to accomplish its mission of aviation safety.
