In March 2023, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) issued a new cybersecurity amendment focusing on the cybersecurity resilience of U.S. critical infrastructure, including airports and aircraft operators. The new emergency amendment requires that TSA-regulated entities develop an approved implementation plan that describes measures they are taking to improve their cybersecurity resilience and prevent disruption to their infrastructure.
