Congress Asks GAO to Review Cybersecurity Risks at NASA

Committee Leaders Request GAO Review of Cybersecurity Risks at NASA

"Today, Chairwoman Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-TX), along with Ranking Member Frank Lucas (R-OK), Chairman of the Subcommittee on Space and Aeronautics Don Beyer (D-VA), and Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Space and Aeronautics Brian Babin (R-TX) sent a letter to Comptroller General Gene Dodaro requesting the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) conduct a review of the cybersecurity risks to the sensitive data associated with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA) major projects and spaceflight operations."

"'NASA's portfolio of major projects includes satellites equipped with advanced sensors to study the Earth, telescopes intended to explore the universe, and spacecraft to transport humans and cargo beyond low-Earth orbit,' said Committee Members in the letter. 'As each project represents significant investments in innovative technology, they could also be attractive targets to malicious actors.'"
