Older Alert and Warning Systems are Not Secure

Security was never a planning factor years ago.

See this article, Older U.S. Emergency Alert Systems May Not be Secure, Researchers Find.

I think the "may" in the title above can be replaced by "are not" secure. Security was just not a planning factor, especially anything to do with the digital or remote actioning of the system. I believe the planning assumptions for all older warning systems should start with, "Our system is not secure and we need to make it secure."
