Another great example of how advances in Information Technology are revolutionizing aviation is the emergence of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), popularly known as "drones," as serious tools for business and government. Making processors, cameras and communications chips more powerful while also making them smaller and lighter allows designers to pack more power into smaller and lighter aerial packages. As a result, drones are now regularly found doing productive work in areas such as

  • aerial photography
  • real estate
  • construction
  • utility inspection
  • law enforcement
  • firefighting
  • agriculture
  • package delivery
However, integrating drones into your business or agency can be a daunting task. In addition to the significant technical challenges, there are numerous regulatory hurdles that must be overcome. And drones present significant security and privacy concerns; a recent survey by the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA) found
  • 75% of businesses they surveyed listed security and privacy as their biggest concern regarding the use of drones in the enterprise;
  • 65% of respondents said they believed that most organizations that could truly benefit from drone adoption aren't prepared to adequately handle the security and privacy requirements;
  • and 63% said their staff doesn't have the proper expertise to evaluate drone security.
I have the skills and experience required to smooth the path to putting drones to work for your enterprise. I have extensive experience in aviation, aviation maintenance, avionics and computer information systems, so I know how to meet the technical and regulatory challenges drone present. In addition, I am a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), so I have the expertise you need to meet the security and privacy issues drones bring to the table.
