Cybersecurity Master Plan and Communication System Improvements at Baltimore/Washington Thurgood Marshall International and Martin State Airports
What did the client need? The MAA needed enhanced network security, technology system life cycle tracking and management, and business process improvements at BWI and Martin State Airports.
How did Burns meet their goals? Over the past 15 years, Burns has developed unparalleled knowledge and expertise in the systems that support airport operations, including telecommunications, security, access control, video surveillance, radio systems, public address, fiber optic cabling networks and other special systems unique to airports. Burns worked with BWI and Martin State Airport to create:
- An initial cyber-security plan that will eventually lead to a full cyber-security master plan for MAA
- A Mission Critical Prevention Plan for BWI that will identify all systems and categorize each one at certain levels of criticality
- An VoIP System Analysis that outlined available improvements and upgrades to the existing NEC Voice over IP system, and potential integration issues between the envisioned MDOT-wide cloud based system and MAA’s system
- A PCI Analysis that reviewed system functionality and workflow, including data storage requirements for credit card information
- MBE Participation Monitoring Software for BWI that tracks participation of minority-, woman-, and disabled veteran-owned firms on contracts providing services to the MAA. This included configuration, testing, and roll-out of the software in addition to training of users
