The following report is a security assessment on Aircraft Solutions and the primary objective in this assessment is to identify the existence of vulnerabilities present within the global context of Aircraft Solutions’ operations. An evaluation of the associated threats will be deduced, accompanied by the exposed weaknesses. This will be followed by an analysis of the degree of risk present.
