Chicago air traffic halted over fire at FAA facility – CBS News


Chicago air traffic halted over fire at FAA facility – CBS News.

Risk: Something might happen that prevents the FAA from using the Aurora facility (e.g., “disgruntled” individual sets fire in basement, power failure, bomb threat, flood, weather, “disgruntled” ex-boyfriend takes FAA employee ex-girlfriend hostage, strike, sickout, computer virus, mechanical failure, lightening strike, terrorist attack, repair gone bad, food poisoning at onsite retirement party).

Control: Business Continuity Planning (Dear FAA- You can get the basics from reading the Wikipedia entry).

Favorite quote:

Law enforcement officials tell CBS News that the fire appears to be a suicide attempt by the contract employee, who was disgruntled.

Ahh, disgruntled employee. Sounds a lot like a “never before seen variation of a common piece of malware.” Who knew?
