Cyber security threats in the Airline Industry

As Cyber security attacks has been increasing in industries, and it has reach to the airline industry too. While every business is a potential target when it comes to hacking personal information of customers, consider for a moment taking that threat to a new level. Not only is contact information accessible but a hacker who wants to do serious harm to a group of traveling diplomats, for example, can easily access their flight itinerary to see where they will be and when. Imagine what terrorists could do with this information. While they may be looking to target individuals and groups on the ground by knowing their destination, they may seek to do even greater harm by hacking into the aircraft controls. Everyone aboard the plane could be at risk.
