Shift5 answers GAO's call to action

The U.S. Government Accountability Office (GOA) calls upon the federal government to take urgent action to protect federal systems and critical infrastructure from cyberattack. Shift5 meets the need by protecting against the full lifecycle of cyberattack.


Repair parts

When repairing vehicles, replacement parts can be compromised through supply chain vulnerabilities or attacks.


Maintenance laptops, USB thumb drives, or CDs that are interfacing directly with the platform can be compromised.

Close access

Physical security can be breached, leading to an adversary gaining direct access to a platform.


Each time a vehicle connects to a computer to provide unencrypted or unauthenticated firmware updates, there’s an opportunity for a security breach.

RF access

Certain devices can be configured to emit radio frequencies that interfere with system performance or disrupt the normal functioning of subsystems.


Attackers can gain unauthorized access to closed or air-gapped networks, persisting on your network to gain access to launch an attack at a time and place of their choosing.

Physical assets

Similar to a supply chain vulnerability, managing countless parts for platform maintenance or working with a large supplier can lead to adversaries gaining access to physical assets.

Without proactive cybersecurity protection, your platforms are susceptible to the malicious effects of nation state adversaries

Destroy The hacker’s objective is to damage your system so badly that a complete rebuild is required.

Disable By turning off your system unexpectedly, a hacker can make business and mission operations impossible.

Deny Adversaries can deny access to critical information, systems, and services by locking you out.

Deceive False information may manipulate your perception of reality without knowledge of a cyberattack.

Disrupt By breaking or interrupting the flow of information, attackers can halt communication.

Degrade Hackers can reduce the effectiveness and efficiency of your systems, slowing down your operations.
