ATLANTA – Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport will deploy a monitoring service that should protect its internet access.
In October, Atlanta was one of several major facilities taken offline by what authorities believe was a Russian hacker.
“We have continued to evaluate the vulnerability and the strength of our system and as we discover areas where we need to strengthen, we’ll continue to do that. And so, this is one area to strengthen in our network,” said Balram Bheodari, Atlanta airport general manager.

An airport spokesperson says they will announce when the new monitoring software will be up-and-running in the coming days.
