A CIO's Perspective on Technology and Security

The Federal Aviation Administration is currently working to revamp the nation’s air traffic control system. NextGen is a wide-ranging transformation of the entire national air transportation system to meet future demands and avoid gridlock in the sky and in the airports. It moves away from legacy ground based technologies to a new and more dynamic satellite based technology. Critical to this effort is defining the cybersecurity strategies and the opportunities for future operators and government contractors. These new capabilities and the highly interdependent technologies that support them will change the way the system operates, reduce congestion, and improve the passenger experience.  To discuss the future of this program, the Institute and Billington Cybersecurity were pleased to host:

David Bowen
