• Cleveland Airport Screens Hacked

    Digital security is important.  Cleveland.com and 16:9 report that the Cleveland airport’s flight and baggage information screens were down for much of last week as a result of a malware attack.  The FBI is involved.  There’s quite a twitter trail.

     

    The affected screens weren’t smart advertising screens or kiosks but it’s worth reiterating good security procedures.

    1. Physically secure your digital screens.
    2. Use an intrusion detection program like Smartlink.
    3. Use strong passwords (letters, numbers and symbols) and non-obvious user names.
    4. Remind your staff of the dangers of phishing attacks.
    5. Use two factor authentication to make each user accessing the system independently authenticates themselves with their phone in addition to using a password and user name.
