TRANSPORTATION AND LOGISTICS

The industry’s sub-sectors such as aviation, maritime, mass transit, and highway infrastructure have been targeted by online attackers for the past year.

According to the U.S Department of Transportation in last year’s Transportation Systems Sector-Specific Plan, the transportation industry is becoming increasingly vulnerable to cyberattacks. The report states that this is due to “the growing reliance on cyber-based control, navigation, tracking, positioning and communications systems, as well as the ease with which malicious actors can exploit cyber systems serving transportation.”

As an industry offering cybercriminals a host of targets on a global scale, a data breach incident in the transportation sector can potentially lead to the collapse of economies or mass chaos. The United Airlines hack is a good example. Besides billions of dollars lost, stolen data can be catalogued together with stolen medical and financial data, and serve as excellent avenues for future blackmails and more large-scale breaches.
