Gogo Inflight Internet has partnered with Embry-Riddle to offer Prescott Campus Cyber Security and Intelligence students internship opportunities. Joshua Hammes will be the first Gogo intern.
GoGo provides onboard systems for both commercial and general aviation to enable internet applications to be offered while en-route. After the 2015 tweet by Chris Roberts, there has been scrutiny concerning the security of such systems.
“Together with Embry-Riddle interns, the security of such implementations will be studied and risk mitigation discovered,” said Dr. Jon Haass, professor of Cyber Security and Intelligence.
Embry-Riddle’s Cyber Security and Intelligence program provides the training for students to participate in government, commercial and academic positions around the world.
