This week in Dallas the Federal Aviation Administration held its Information Technology/Information Systems Security (IT/ISS) Partnership and Training Conference. The theme was A Window into the Future. The keynote speech was appropriately delivered by the FAA's CIO Dave Bowen, who did not sugarcoat the cyber security threats the FAA is facing. In addressing the conference Bowen said, "We’re here because deliberate and calculated attacks on America's cyber backbone are being carried out in methodic, chilling detail. The bad guys want in, and they're testing every door and window to do it. They're even willing to dig a tunnel or two — or 20. And, they're having some success."
