Audit Initiated to Review the Security Controls over FAA's ATCSCC
The Office of Inspector General plans to conduct a review of the security and controls at the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) Air Traffic Control System Command Center (ATCSCC). Approximately 4,000 to 6,000 aircraft operate in the National Airspace System during peak traffic periods. Consequently, FAA's information security program for the Center must maintain the integrity and availability of ATCSCC's systems and data. Our audit objective is to determine the effectiveness of ATCSCC's information security controls and whether FAA is identifying security risks and properly mitigating them.
