5consequences of a successful deliberate or inadvertent misuse of a computer system inthe aviation industry range from loss of confidentiality to loss of system integrity, which may lead to more serious concerns such as data theft or loss, and network outages.Although several vulnerabilities exist within Aircraft Solutions, this paper will focus on the software vulnerability such as data theft or loss from software corruption and viruses. Software corruption, which might include damage, caused by a software diagnostic program, accounts for 13 percent of data loss incidents. Computer viruses including boot sector and file infecting viruses account for 6 percent of data loss episodes. An episode of severe data loss will result in one of two outcomes: either the data are recoverable with the assistance of a technical support person, or the data are permanently lost and must be rekeyed. A calculation of the average cost of each data loss incident must take into account both possibilities. The ability to recover data depends on the cause of the data loss episode (Smith, 2003).Because Aircraft Solutions has valuable intellectual property, the cost of data loss can be astronomical. In fact, 17 percent of data loss incidents cannot be retrieved. It is worthnoting that the value of the lost data varies widely depending on the incident and, most critically, on the amount of data lost. Should AS experience a data loss, it may take hundreds of man-hours over several weeks to recover and reconstruct. Such prolonged effort could cost a company thousands, even potentially millions, of dollars. Although it is difficult to precisely measure the intrinsic value of data, and the value of different
6types of data varies, several sources in the computer literature suggest...
