Abstract: In developed countries, the creation and usage of satellite navigation systems for ground transportation monitoring has been helping to solve various problems for a long time whereas in Russia similar systems based on GLONASS have been introduced relatively recently. Satellite monitoring is widely used to supervise ground transportation for solving logistical tasks, control of passenger and cargo traffic, optimization of courier services, providing the safety of passenger and freight transportation. Attackers in the case of gaining access to a system with read-permissions can illegally obtain information about the location of monitored objects. If attackers can access with write-permissions, they can affect the data in the system, intercepting or sending false data. Both of these options may entail serious negative consequences and even cause casualties. The study describes the purpose and typical structure of such systems; the necessity of their information security risk management. The necessity of development a new approaches of risk management for such systems is also noted.
